Small motorcycle museum tucked away in an old complex with antique and craft shops.
Went Sunday 25th June 2006, parked in the large car-park near the Barge Inn and then walked over to the old farm site where the museum is situated.
Small place with sad rusting Ariel-3 moped outside and a couple of old style petrol pumps. The museum I in two small units and is packed with old British built motorcycles and a couple of others, a Suzuki RE5 that looks as though it has seen better days and a nice red Vespa SS180 scooter.
It seems more of a club room than a museum and outside there were quite a few old British bikes and their owners chatting and drinking tea.
It’s worth the £1 donation to get in for a look around.
Lovers of counrty pubs (and especially of real ale) will no doubt feel right at home at this traditional English pub. The location next to the scenic River Crouch makes it a great place to relax with a cold pint on a sunny afternoon.
Favorite Dish: There are always 5 - 6 ales available from a wide selection including Adnams Bitter / Broadside, Courage Directors, Charles Wells Bombardier and The Barge is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2003 & 2004.
The food is a mixture of traditional and modern, and the menu lists delicious dishes such as Bramley Apple & Kentish Cider Paté, Beer Battered Chicken, Oak Smoked Salmon Fishcakes, Steak and Ale Pie, Hunters Chicken, Chicken & Rocket Pesto Pasta, Duck with Rustic Orange Sauce and Halibut with a Horseradish Crust, as well as steaks, grills and vegetarian specialities.
