I thought I would kick this one off. How about some recommendations for good watering holes.

My personal local favorite is the Victoria at Coalville in Leicestershire 4 miles from J22 of the M1. Very biker friendly with live music and great company. Whenever you turn up there will be bikes in the car park summer or winter.
