Full English and a side or­der of new mo­tor­cy­cle? Sounds per­fect

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.
