Book Description

14 Nov 2012 10th Edition
With some seventy three changes this newly revised edition features even more affordable places as alternatives to service stations. Each entry will provide a meal or a quiet rest just five minutes from a motorway junction. The author has personally visited and selected over 200 entries in the guide which are included for their ambiance, friendliness, imaginative menus or peaceful surroundings. They do not pay for inclusion so each is chosen solely on merit. Each entry is illustrated by pen and wash drawing by the author, for ease of recognition. Special mention is made of the welcome for dogs and children and of any places of interest which are nearby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great aid to Motorway travel 5 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
I first heard of this extremely useful book when I called in at a public house just a few hundred yards from the M11. After enjoying a superb meal, I asked the owner for a card so that I could add his establishment tpo a others that I have discovered in the past. He gave me his card and said had I heard of the above book, and that it took the guesswork (taking the wrong exit on the hope of finding a place to stop at, stopping at an eatery only to find out it wasn't very good etc.).
When I returned home I searched for it and eventually found it at a discounted price on Amazon. It really does live up to all expectations. The entries sem to cover a range of establishments and prices, and it makes the planning of journeys much more pleasurable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy glovebox book 22 Mar 2013

Find this book really useful when on long motorway journeys, especially when I have the dog in the car with me and don't want to exercise at motorway services. You really feel you've had a break without having to travel too far off route.

Only used the book twice so far but both pubs we have stopped at have been great - so much more comfortable and reasonable than the nearby services.

Will be useful when looking for a refreshment stop whilst on a Motorway. Service stations can be pricy and uncomfortable.
