For anyone in the midlands this one is worth a try. First set of lights after leaving J7 of the M6 and heading into Bham on the A34, turn right onto the A4041 Queslett Road, after around 2 miles the layby on the left is home to the Bizarre Cafe.

Open 24hours this offers top food at good prices & plenty of parking to eat /rest. You can sit inside the mobile resturant too. Vending machines, TV everything you could wish for.

Dropped in to a Garden centre off the A34 south of Oxford. South Hinksey or somethin, hadn't been for years. Quite enjoyable. Full cafe reasonably priced. Clean toilets, good parking and good access from North and southbound. Plus in a few weeks you'll be able to get your Christmas tree there :D

Went to another of these garden centres "Wyevale" they're a chain. always seem to have a nice cafe at the back. This one was near RAF Cosford just off the M54. Coffee and B&E sandwich £2.95. Very Nice. They have a web site as well with a store locator if you want to plan a stop. :)

Anybody notice how Mike starts his first post by saying he doesn't eat much, he gives us details and then he adds a further two posts, one after the other!

And you go to all these places when your doing your window cleaning Mike? :wink:
Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today - cos if you like it today you can do it again tomorrow!
