Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Loomies Moto Café

Loomies has been a reg­u­lar bikers’ haunt for nearly a decade, but since be­ing saved from clo­sure two years ago by a cou­ple of long-stand­ing cus­tomers this fan­tas­tic venue has gone from strength to strength. Loomies feels more like a club­house than a café. There’s al­ways a warm wel­come and it’s fa­mous for food, peo­ple and a great at­mos­phere.

The Ace Café

Its ri­otous rock-and-roll be­gin­nings made it the leg­end it re­mains to­day. It’s a hugely pop­u­lar melt­ing pot of peo­ple and bikes, with Fri­day’s bike nights draw­ing a huge range of ma­chin­ery. There are themed nighta ebery week (check the web­site). It’s fa­mous for be­ing the Ace... oh, and chilli cheese chips. Trust us. Location London Con­tact www.ace-cafe-london.com Star rat­ing

Squires Café Bar

Squires is un­mis­tak­ably a biker gaff. For 60 years bikers have been head­ing to Squires on a Wed­nes­day evening. It’s a 20-acre site with up to 1800 bikes turning up on sunny week­ends. It’s fa­mous for huge turnouts in the sum­mer months and home-cooked, hearty food at a rea­son­able price. Location Leeds Con­tact www.squires-cafe.co.uk Star rat­ing

The Vic­to­ria Bikers’ Pub

You can camp or rent a room any time at the Vic­to­ria, but The Big One is on Thurs­day nights, when over 500 rid­ers have been known to show up as rooftop speak­ers flood the air with classic rock. It’s fa­mous for a lively at­mos­phere, a huge va­ri­ety of bikes, cheap eats and real ales. Location Coalville Con­tact www.vicbik­er­spub.co.uk Star rat­ing
