  • Thats really good to know as i was starving last time i went up there but had to settle for a burger king near Bury. Will definately pop in next time i'm up there (hopefully next week)
    What if your dreams and fears existed in the same place? What if to get to heaven, you had to brave hell? What if everything you've ever wanted cost you everything you've ever achieved? Would you still go there?

    Support Poppies if you can, they're thinking of stocking basic spares and stuff and were looking at buying some big lock so you could chain your bike up, so are definitely biker friendly.
    It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

    I've bought a new bike....ouch - result
    Can I buy a new bike?...No - no result
