We've lost Basil but Kingdom rules!

We thought we had lost another tea stop when Basil Foods announced it was closing its cafe in the converted barn near Penshurst. But KIngdom, who run the site, have moved the catering facilites to the upper level and continue to offer refeshment. A big bonus, they are now open all week. On a sunny day, as it was last Saturday, there are stunning views across the Weald. It is a short but steep climb (hitting 19%) to reach the site but well worth the brief effort.

Be warned, the service was very slow, avoid anything other than a drink and a piece of cake if you are short of time. Hopefully it will improve as the new managemnet settles in.

Rick led a lovely G2 ride through lanes rendered even more attractive by the autumn sun.
