Hi! Honeybun! No, not you! These three!

When in Spilsby, the place to head for is Honeybun, 26-28 Market Street Spilsby.  How do I know? I've been there, that's how I know. It was Spilsby Bike Night on Tuesday 21st May and your heroes: Alan, Colin, Geoff, Maurice, Brian and more , many more headed to this Lincolnshire market town in the renowned Lincolnshire Wolds. We were not alone. Of course not, how can seven people be alone? There were in fact hundreds of bikes, hundreds of bikers and hundreds of non-bikers looking at the hundreds of bikes and the hundreds of bikers: that is what bikes nights are all about.

It's thirsty work, though, so off to find a tea room and the one we found was Honeybun. Newly opened and serving tea, coffee and really great cake, I think they have weaned us off fish 'n' chips!

Oh yes! My next bike.
Or even this one!

Apologies, but still no fish and chips! 
Warm and sunny today so off to Gibraltar Point for soup and roll and a short siesta in the sun. Miles of slow moving cars between Gunby and Skegness were no obstacle to progress on the Pan European and I made it to The Point Cafe at the Lincs Wildlife Trust Visitor Center in good time. The cafe is actually rather good. Here's the menu.

Discovery  of the day though was Rachel's Cafe at Hagworthingham . With five stars for cleanliness, bright and airy and  great service and good value , you raally must try this place, midway between  Horncastle and Partney. The meals are good, too, as one of out crowd has testified. We'll definitely be back.

Well, it was OK went we set off from the Wild Coast, but by the time the five of us arrived at the Hawaiian Eye Cafe opposite the pier in Cleethorpes, it was distinctly chilly. A quick cup of hot chocolate and a natter to what few bikers were around and then back down the bendy coast road as the temperature dropped from 12 to 11...to..10..ending up at just 6 Celsius!

However, in line with the theme of this blog, we did discuss fish and chips. The general consensus was that the food at Steels Corner House Restaurant is not what it was. Popular opinion was split between Thompson's in Wetwang - not yet visited by us - and the Market Place in Barton on Humber..unless, of course, you know better!

It's just that we haven't been near any fish and chip shops recently. Last night was a Machine Control Session arranged by Boston Advanced Motorists Bike Section at the LRSP center at North Kyme. I had intended to call in at the Harbour Light fish and chip shop in Mareham le Fen on my way back - see here - but I was too late. Maybe next time. In the meantime, watch this space!
