That's one we've done quite recently isn't it? I seem to remember managing to coax the grotty Sunbeam out that far last time.

Yeah - thought I remembered taking the Sunbeam out there. About the only successful ride I had out of it, as in it got me both there and back.

I think it maybe even eclipses my Griso now for most disappointing bike I ever owned.

Hoping to make this one though I have a full day on the road tomorrow;

. Driving my Previa to Surrey with the Veefer in the back
. Driving someone elses Picasso from there to Lincolnshire, in convoy with my Previa.
. Unloading the Pearl there and riding home.

And the Pearl was running like 5h!t when out and about last night. Perhaps some new plugs are in order.

Well looking at the weather forecast it will definitely be the 4 wheeled Honda that transports my creaky old bones down to this one. :D

Pearl couldn't be any less shiny from yesterdays run, so will likely be on that. Shaping up sporting out there though.

Several flooded sections on the road between Harlow and Waltham Abbey on the way home, soooo glad I took the car.

It was almost as if the snow was laid on specially for us. Just a few hours later and the rain had washed it all away.

Not such a great location in winter unfortunately, now that the 'tap room' is also given over to tables for dining. Beer garden is nice in the summer though.

Sorry I missed you all, I was sitting indoors with my grandson in front of a roaring log burner, think of you though! :D
Thank you Evie for your kind words in Gambalunga, I never knew I was the chairman, I thought that was Bob Smith's job? :D

Hello

As promised I have checked out the Bell at Horndon, which is our meeting place for February

The Bell is very much like the Square and Compasses in that most of the floor space is reserved for tables for the restaurant customers. There is a bar but most of that was being used as a restaurant today. There is a large patio area if the weather is good.

But in the absence of good weather and a possible lack of standing room in the pub, there is another pub about 100 yards down the road called The Swan, this also does Sunday lunches but is not nearly as popular as the Bell and there was room to sit and have a chat when I popped in today

Sounds like good research, and the so called 'tap room' at the S&Q certainly didn't cut it as a meeting place for a less than optimal day weather wise. Difficult to imagine it will be nice enough next month.

Sounds like the Swan could be the pub to shoot for.

Hello

I think we should stick with the Bell but if the Bell is packed out or the weather is bad we can move to the Swan

That way if people cannot find us at the Bell they should pop along to the Swan.

Which is on the same road but 100 yards to the North
