Cafes

You can't beat a good cafe stop on a ride, in fact most of our rides revolve around coffee stops! But this only works if the stop has quality coffee (or tea!) and cakes!

 

Luckily we are in the perfect area for this, so here are some of our favourite cafes (and you'll find routes to each of them on here too!), not forgetting Alf  Jones' cycles, who do a mean coffee too!

 

Tilly's

In Bunbury, so on a nice 40 mile loop, Tilly's claim to fame among some of us is the Date and Oat Slice, but if you fancy something more substantial you won't be disappointed.

They also have a loyalty card to keep you coming back

Cycles have to be left outside, but Bunbury is generally very quiet and we havent had any issues there very popular with cycle clubs from the area

O'Kells

In Duddon Heath, O'Kells is officially a Garden Centre but has a great cafe tucked away, theres also a nice outside section with a large table perfect for cycle groups - and you can walk through the centre with your bike.

Great cakes and the sausage and bacon ciabatta is excellent

The Moatshed

An up market destination, based in Northwood Hall, just outside Wem, but very welcoming to cycle groups, excellent full English if you fancy it half way round (we do!). Lots of parking space and off the beaten track so good for leaving your bike outside in view

The Elephant

In Parkgate, The Elephant is on the Quay front, and has a back garden to sit in, and take your bike in for security

Cleopatra's

In Holt, so a great choice at the end of your ride. Not the best for leaving your bike, but Helen and the crew are extremely welcoming and make great coffee. Frequently full of cyclists from all over the area. If you are a beginner, and not too keen on distances this is a good start, and to make the route slightly longer we have thrown a loop to Rossett in there - which adds Marford Hill into the mix

The Eureka Cyclists Café
The Eureka Café is a unique place and famous amongst cyclists. It has been a regular stopping place since 1929 for motorists and cyclists. Over the years it became known more as a cyclists café. The majority of its customers today are still cyclists, but it also caters for walkers and motorists. It is located on the A540 which is the main route onto the west side of the Wirral Peninsula. It's close to several cycle routes including the Millennium Way, Cheshire Cycleway and the off road Wirral Way and on the doorstep of the Cheshire plains. Famous for its 'beans and a spare', it also serves a great selection of freshly prepared meals, sandwiches and cakes (many wonderful cakes)... and excellent coffees.
