I can personally recommend 2 places on the list: The Lion (@ Blakey Ridge, N Yorks) and The Real Food Cafe (@ Tyndrum, Central Region - Scotland). The M6 Service Station (@Tebay, Cumbria) also mentioned in the text is also excellent!

The Lion is on the route used by the likes of Evo magazine and the roads and countryside are fabulous! Thankfully, we live only 20 miles or so away:
Another place of note, is The Crab & Lobster at Asenby, N Yorks. Took my wife there for Lunch yesterday and we had one of those meals to remember for a long time... :yummy: Great staff/service, superb food and wonderful ambience:

Cheers and a great thread Tony!

This place is great for a lunch - if the woodpigeon is on the menu then go for it !!


Situated between Barnard Castle and Middleton-in-Teesdale, it may not be the greatest drive (that's a matter of opinion) but the rewards are worth it.

Echo the sentiments of Toonman - great thread.

Agreed - I've had it there too!

My Grandfather was born in Romaldkirk; nice village and great hotel!

Great thread, but when are we all going to meet up? I know it's a bit tricky as the UK is a vast land but it'd be nice for us all to meet. Maybe in the new year somewhere in the north of England?

That's a great idea! We're happy to travel, so let's all make a big effort to decide on a date and venue.

Cheers

Tony,
Great thread, nice find!

I've had it there too!
:clap: hope you didnt get caught!

Would be great for everyone to meet up... North of england is kind of central to everyone, Wigan is a great place...we have some fantastic KFC's.. :roll:

What would be ideal is a nice country pub with a huuuuge car park. Can none 1er owners come? :oops:

Tony, Great thread, nice find!
Cheers for the comments, a useful thread at last! I actually thought it was already on here to be honest but after a search could not find anything as I have known about it for a while. Sometime ago you could get a hard copy of the book for free but not sure anymore!?

:p can i come?
YES! :wow:

I'm all for a meet depending on the day of course, I was thinking of mentioning it anyway to be honest hence the comment on the original post and it would be nice to put faces to the user-names on here!

Would be nice to meet up, chat, and have a meal and go for a drive rather than just meet up and drive!

Cheers :beerchug:

Tony

Agreed... Could anyone do a stayover too? We could all get trollied in a pub, have our usual banter, the off for another drive the next day...(obviously not over the limit) :roll:

On a personal note, i've always wanted to drive my 1er in to a swimming pool. We could do that if we stayed at a posh hotel, maybe trash the rooms too. You can imagine the headlines in the local rag. BabyBimmer goes large; reports have just come in concerning a bunch of womanising drug crazed BMW owners at large in the town. What started as a friendly car owners meet turned in to a blood lust debauched rampage through a quiet sleepy country village. Garden gnomes were vandalised and they even ran off without paying their bills at a local KFC.

MissBMW, your Av is almost porno.
