Decided to ride out to the Norton pub in Cold Norton for a couple of beers & some lunch... out in the Essex sticks, it's a pub I've not been to for about 18 years, but I remembered it was a bikers' pub back then, so we thought we would check it out..

It is back to being a bikers pub again, after a break, but was pretty empty other than a CB750 rider at the bar & the landlord, whose Harley was parked in the bar!!!

Turns out he was on the toy run we did for Christmas, and in 1 of the photos we took..

He's the one in the middle:

He was just getting ready to go for a ride (big respect to anyone who takes a Harley out on the wet, oily & mucky roads we have at the moment) but mentioned that they do have a regular bike meet once a week... might have to pop over for that soon..

Had a good natter with the CB750 rider about bikes, scooters, rallies & life in general 'till our dinner turned up..

Steak Pudding!!! Don't see that often enough anymore as far as I'm concerned..!

Anyway, for anyone who fancies a bike / scooter friendly pub in the Essex area (near South Woodham Ferrers) - give it a go..
