Never been, just trying to find places that would have enough parking.

Ta..

There was a place around Banbury..we,'d seen good reviews.. but the proposed meet with @homeward never happened

But Id rather go to a different area.. so some other members might attend

Re: Midlands meet January 22nd 2017

Hatton locks looks ideal, thanks..
big enough indoor seating "covers", and a good range of food.

any other suggestions..??
other wise I'll get this up as an event thread..
speak to the cafe and organise a time to get there,

Charlie

Looks good, I'll try to extract myself from a working Sunday.

Google Maps says 45 mins, from Pear Tree using M40, or 1hr 6mins using A44/A429, avoiding motorway.

Warwick services...we can have a short stop ...to let you catch up !!

That's about 15 miles short of the cafe ??

Re: Midlands meet January 22nd 2017

Warwick services is good for me. Can avoid going near Oxford, straight up Fosse Way, join M40 at Gaydon, just before services. Time?

Re: Midlands meet January 22nd 2017

Destination time is 11am. Last stretch will be 15 miles approx, assuming we don't get lost ! So, one would assume that anywhere between 10.15 and 10.30 would be fine ? Charlie as navigator gets final say ...or should that be Heather ?
