    Last night we stopped at the Keelman just outside Newcastle on Tyne right on the river and tonight we are at the the Chestnut Horse at Kelk just outside Driffield East yorks.
    Not a moment hesitation when asked and both have big quiet car parks and great food. (y)

    Good to hear that the Keelman does overnight stops. It used to be a regular lunch place for me as my office was just a mile away further down the river. It always had good food and friendly staff and glad that it is motorhome friendly.

    At the far end of the carpark is an area of concrete grid work with grass growing through it as flat as a pancake and as I say the food was brilliant.

    Yes that's the one David, made us very welcome. The postcode drops you a bit early, head for the leisure centre and keep going right to the end, entrance on your right.

    The menu looks lovely - and very reasonable prices if they're current.

    But a lot of people might miss a dessert ?????? Can't see any mention of such things, let alone a pudding !

    The staff there were always very friendly. If you have your bikes with you it's also a good spot for a nice cycle run out to Wylam and back following the coast to Coast cycle path.

    Don't worry there were puds available not that I partook of any mind, me wanting to keep my racing snake physique in shape. :LOL:

    There were cyclists setting off when we were getting ready to leave this morning, really stupid thing to do that. GET AN ENGINE! :whistle:
