South Mids ABR meet next Sunday - 9th Jan

Post by Alun » Sun Jan 02, 2011 1:20 pm

I've a feeling that the ABR South Mids members could be putting on some weight in 2011. Having now visited the designated Sunday morning breakfast cafe I have to say that Glebe Farm is spot on for a meeting place.

Situated just off the Fosse Way to the north east of Stratford and just to the south of Leamington, Glebe is a working farm and the track to the cafe can be a bit greenlanish. Well it was this morning with mud, puddles and plenty of cow shite to cake up the Tiger and make it look like I'd just arrived via the Congo on a particularly bad day in the rainy season.

To the right of the cafe is a field with raw sausages.

The guy who runs the cafe is an enthusiastic butcher and biker who owns a Rocket and makes award winning sausages.

The menu has all the essentials.

And the full breakfast is quality. I kid you not when I say the sausages are the right up there with the best I've ever tasted. Throw in a couple of slices of home cured bacon, beans, a free range egg, mushrooms, tomatoes and two slices of bread and the world is a wonderful place.

In short, Glebe Farm is a perfect location for a Sunday morning breakfast meet and being on the Fosse it makes for a fine departure point for a run into the badlands of the Cotswolds.

Right then, who's up for a full brekkie and a ride out next Sunday - 9th Jan. The cafe is open at 9am and I'll be there up to my neck in sausage sandwiches.

Hi Alun, So it was you in there this morning.
We arrived @2ish yer man there told us he had already had some bikes
in earlier. The reason we were there is because i saw it mentioned here
and decided to give it a go. Can also recommend the breakfast good value
@ £5.00 inc tea.

Will try next Sunday a bit earlier

Hi Ady, I'll be there 9 to 9.15ish on the Tiger and will be sticking to the tarmac. I'm thinking of heading off down through Banbury and swinging through the Cotswolds to Broadway Tower or there abouts before heading back to Stratford.

I won't be available for rideouts until end of Jan/start of Feb as I've not got my CBT done yet, looking around 20th Jan to have it sorted as I'm off work then so plenty of time to do it.

See you all soon
