Biker Friendly Cafes - New for 2016

Posted on


Over the past few weeks we have been checking and updating the extensive list of Cafes, Meets and Pubs that are included on THE BIKER GUIDE website, popular with Bikers as a place to head to for coffee & cake, mugs of tea and bacon butties, along with bike nights, where you are sure to meet like-minded folk and lots of lovely motorbikes and motorbikers...

As we checked (hours and hours of work) we found a lot of places have sadly shut, changed hands (so not Biker Friendly anymore), changed from cafes into houses, pubs into restaurants and some which have even been demolished.

However we have also discovered new cafes and pubs, who welcome Bikers, have bike nights and many offering quality food and drinks in lovely surroundings.
