    came across this website but it looks a bit dated, has anyone ever used it or any of the numerous places it claims to be accommodating? I.E. does it do what it says on the tin?

    I have used it a bit and have the book. It is pretty much the same idea as the Google Map with the pubs on that someone on here does - it relies on being updated constantly. I've come across places that are on the list and have never heard of it and also places that are fine.

    We used it last Saturday at a pub near Slough just off the M4.

    It was great. Nice pub, great food and a quiet secluded place to park.

    We hadn't used it before. I think it best to contact the places listed before you go there just to check if you are ok to park.

    Why pay for a list of MH friendly pubs when all you need to do is ask .. ?
    You don't need to belong to any organisation or club..

    Most pubs, provided they have adequate parking space won't say no if you are spending cash at the bar.

    All very well but as, as been said many times before how are they on insureance and stuff, and you can't really drink and park on a pub car park , what happens if you get moved on, and by the arrangement of the thing you will be going in the pub so be carefull.
    Not knocking it , used Britstops last year but not joined this time, found it can be dearer and less secure than cls and css and you end up round by the bins.
    You pays your money and takes your choice:BigGrin:
