Re: North Yorkshire Moors

Well, we've done our Yorkshire Moors Tour, stayed in Forest & Vale in Pickering and in general had a good time with good food, drank well and tried out the Moors roads. Visited Scarborough (not my idea) Whitby, Staithes, Saltburn by the Sea and of course Goathland. Found the Cod and Lobster, but ful...

Re: New Member - Owner of E60 B5 No. 153

Hi Nathan,

This date is really close to my wife's birthday so most likely would be having a family meal somewhere. To be fair she does let me get away with rather a lot so its probably a no go for me.

Re: North Yorkshire Moors

Hi Hap, yes we intend to visit Whitby on the A169 via Goathland, which I think is the road you mean, so thanks. Plus on northwards on the A174 again with a stop at Staithes, amongst many other routes. We will keep a lookout for the cafe. All we need is some recommendations for must see places, resta...

Re: New Member - Owner of E60 B5 No. 153

Hi Mr Green and welcome, I am a Gloucestershire member and, as others have said, there are number of local places to meet with other like minded enthusiasts such as Caffeine and Machine, which is quite a nice drive out on a Sunday to Ettington Warwickshire. Another place I quite like to visit is The...

Re: Made me smile

I just knew there would be some other mispronunciations others had heard and I do like the badge :D . I'm going to have to cut and paste that and forward it.
