The new space looks amazing. Think of your typical TGI Friday decor, then add loads more stuff! There's moto memorabilia everywhere.
One of the first things you see when you enter is the converted VW Bus - now the coolest booth ever.
Moving on down, you can't miss the bar - fronted by a couple of lit-up VW bus front-ends and a motorcycle centre piece on the table behind!
Oh, and before that, there's a cool little 'Italian Job' snug complete with a couple of minis coming through the wall.
And if that wasn't enough - the rest of the place is covered in signs, keyrings, oil cans, car and bike parts, vintage bicycles, plaques, licence plates...
If it's cool - it's probably there on the wall somewhere!
Heading downstairs takes you to the bikes.
Lined up and ready for buyers, there's a pretty decent range to choose from.
Next to the sales office there's a little bike clothing section too.
The 'old' diner is also still downstairs. I believe that it will have limited opening times though - mainly weekends and periods where the upstairs is busy.
The far end of the downstairs section hides the rest of the treasures - in Jem's very own graffitied-up cobbled street!
The street is home to a micro pub, tattoo parlour, barber shop and a vintage/antique store. If that's not enough - there's a few e-bikes for sale down there too!
The new refit looks awesome - I can't explain how much I love it. It's deffo my cup of tea. But, there was a little bit of trouble in paradise. Before visiting, I'd popped online to check out a few reviews - and a common theme was problems with waiting time. And yep, we got that too. However, I'm gonna take this as teething problems (which is to be expected) and I'm sure it will work itself out.
I also stopped off on the way home to take a few snaps of my bike. First ride of the year and all that. Plus, I can't resist an old mill.
