I have confirmed that the Kings Arms will be open at lunch time and advised them to expect a small group of cyclists. Since they will have limited staff on duty, they can only offer simple sandwiches and soup.
I've tried contacting the Monkey Tree cafe several times without success ( maybe they don't open till next week ? ). We could take pot luck to see if they are open on the day and if not try the Granary or the Glass House cafe's ( I pass all three premises on my route ). If no joy, we could ride on directly to lunch or if riders brought a snack pause somewhere for BYO 11's.
I hope to see some of you at Dalston.
