    Hi all,

    Two pubs who let motorhomes park free overnight/or longer if you have a drink, we have used both of these:-


    The Railway - Thorpe-on-the-Hill, Nr Licoln - excellent food, excellent prices, food is cooked fresh.

    The Coach & Horses - Billinghay - Nr Saxilby - excellent food, friendly host, rally field,


    These may have already been posted if so apologies.

    In Bridgnorth:

    The Woodberry Down, Victoria Road WV16 4LF

    They do food and it's a short and fairly level walk into town. They have permission for up to 5 vans at a time.

    On me way to the Farm on Sat, and saw 8 or 9 M/H parked in the yard of the Star Inn at Vogue, Just the Redruth side of St Day.
    Could have been a Rally?

    I have had that carvery a few times - pretty good.

    Haven't been in there though since my daughter was about 4 and climbed on a stool and fell off onto a tiled floor head first. Blood everywhere.

    Convenient for the Royal Shrewsbury hospital though:BigGrin:

    At the risk of being labeled a Pedant, Billinghay is not near Saxilby. Its at least 25 miles away from Saxilby and you would have to go through or around Lincoln to get there.

    Hi Pete,

    Sorry about that :Doh: but then again I am only a woman, but if I was going to Billinghay I would look it up on map or google it, its a good job that us women arent pickerty about everything that men say and do :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Not perfect by a long chalk :thumb:

    Fair enough. I'm Lincolnshire born and bred, so I do get a bit excited when "Grockles" get it wrong about my beloved county.
