CycleChatters' Cafe Recommendation Thread

Bank View Café (Langsett Café)
A616 Sheffield - Manchester Road
(south-east of 'The Flouch')
Langsett

It's a while since I've been in it, but it was a call after coming north over Mortimer Road, from Snake Pass (A57)
Don't eat in there, then go south over Mortimer Road (1), your stomach won't thank you for it
Okay....descending 'Deliverance' wouldn't be a problem, but the other climbs on the road will have a cumulative effect

EDIT @ 11:50
Saturday 10th August

About 10 seconds into the clip, it shows the 2nd half of the last climb over the Strines
NB: this one does not, go to the café, it is about 3k east of the cafe

Spinney Cafe near Holmes Chapel A50 is popular with cyclists, new and old. Wednesday afternoon seems to be a veteran meet...

I like Walk Mill, nr Waverton Chester. Not a typical cycling cafe but well used by cyclists.
Agreed, it's a lovely setting. I also go there for flour. Love the stoneground stuff, I usually buy 5 bags (7.5 kilos). It's a 70 mile round trip but I enjoy doing it and it gives a good workout on the way back!!

Gloucestershire .... Winter recommendations: With the colder seasons on the way, thought I'd mention a couple of places that are open all year round where you can take refuge from the elements.
(1) The Tortworth farm shop café, Tortworth. Coffee, cakes and soup all recommended. Plenty of space for bikes outside, and in plain view of the dining area.
(2) Jolly Nice, near Frampton Mansell. Choice a bit limited and not cheap, but the yurt has a wood burner in the middle that you can huddle around to thaw yourselves out. If you are in the Stroud/Cirencester area of the Cotswolds in the winter, there are very few such opportunities.
