Zero & Sidecar TTs
Rutter and the Birchalls
Adealership is always worth a visit, but if there’s more on offer than a showroom and service area then it can be considered something of a destination. This week we blat down to the Garden of England in order to sample the delights of H’s Cafe at Honda main agent, Kent Motorcycles.
H’s is bright, clean and friendly, with a standard of professionalism that you’d expect from a main dealer. We opted for ‘H’s Full English’ and were more than satisfied with the speed of service, presentation and, of course, the taste. At £5.70 it’s also one of the best-value brekkies on our travels so far. “The food is superb,” says regular Ray Webb. “It’s not greasy. It’s nice that the staff know you by name too, so you never feel like a stranger.” For local lad Rich Nixon it’s a great location to organise rideouts from, too. “There are some decent runs locally and the set breakfasts are great value,” says Rich. With the tucker truly tested, we popped into the dealership to have a chat with ‘H’ himself – Kent Motorcycles’ driving force, Hadrian Powell.
“We have so many loyal customers,” says Hadrian, “and we like to let them know that we’re here for them. Our café is the perfect meeting place, where we serve good, locally sourced food at great prices. There’s no pressure and no club that you need to join.”
H’s is open seven days a week and hosts a bike night every Wednesday from March to October, when opening hours are extended to 9pm. As part of a dealership with great grub and service, H’s Cafe is another strong contender.
Good, honest tucker in a friendly environment All this can be yours for just £5.70. Yes please! Fez, Mart, Chris and Evil were up from Brighton H himself. Dealership boss Hadrian Powell Ray Webb and Mark Pitcher appreciate the personal touch you get at H’s Cafe just off the A2
