I was going to add the Gentle Jane in Grosmont, but see that MalVolio beat me to it.

They had that Nicole Cooke in there a couple of weeks ago.

This cake stop map is a great idea but please, for the benefit of the technically illiterate like myself,  can you also provide some instructions on how to add entries to the map ?

The Coffee Tavern (facing the market square) and Beans (near the War Memorial) perhaps?

And there's Smiths at No.4 but it's a bit posher and smaller in there.

Surely we need both. One can't have too many pleasures in life.

But not together, cake and beer just don't mix well

Clarion, I can't find any East Anglian ones either.

Wobbly John, enlighten us! I know where some beer is, but there cannot be such a cake vacuum in the mystic east, can there?

I've never had a problem.

Scone with blackcurrant jam and cream, all washed down with a pint of Adnams. Just like being on the Mildenhall 100k.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Mmmm...  fine for some, I remember a friend who used to have a Mars Bar or Cream Egg with every pint, I just find that mixing sweet stuff with ale just doesn't agree with my GI chemistry

There was a deplorable lack of entries around here. Still no cake stops, but there's now a selection of purveyors of beer. All have gardens suitable for summer cyclists, & also sell food - though in some cases just rolls.

I haven't worked out whether I'm supposed to be able to add these to the universal map given at the beginning of the thread, but if someone else does so I'll be grateful...

OK, I give in - I admit it - I'm hopeless at this sort of thing.

I've just logged in, created three new cafe points with descriptions, OK'ing my way out of each one as per the Help instructions. They appeared on the map with the teacup icon and in the list on the left hand pane. When I refresh the Google Maps screen, I now have two editions of "Best Cake and Beer Stops" under "Created by others" at top left, but neither shows my additions - they've just have gone. Pooh!

So what should I have done?

Did you click on the 'edit' button on the bottom left hand pane before you made your markers? And when you'd finished did you click on 'save'?

Raph, I've added yours onto the map.

I seem to be getting different symbols on the maps depending on whether or not I am looking at page one or two on the left. Has anybody else noticed this?

Thanks Mrs Pingu! There was a lack of cake stops around here so that's great. R

Not sure how fussy to be - the National Herb Centre is at the top of the hill, south of Warmington, the teacup symbol on the map is about 1/2 mile out and  on the wrong side of the village of Warmington - someone looking for the Herb Centre in the village might be looking for a long time before realizing it's outside the village at the top of the hill - how do I move it to the exact spot?

...which is:

Don't know if I'm being a pedant - sometimes when you really really need a cake stop, knowing exactly where it is can be a godsend!  :)

I am happy to recommend the Tudor Dairies in Henley-in-Aden.

More commonly known as 'that tea room with the ice cream' ;D

Good menu, including whopping toasted teacakes & cream teas as well as savoury stuff (breakfasts served till 1400, IIRC), and, of course, about a gazillion flavours of ice cream.

Oh - and forget silly closing times - they're open till 1730 on a sunday! :o

Tea was good - and they have a big photo of a club outing on their wall. :)

Staff were a clueless but pretty charming bunch of teenagers, but all was well.

Kludgey Google code wouldn't save the 4 that I put in, and also wouldn't let me choose the cup and saucer.  :'(
