East Anglia - MEATUP. Who's keen?


Recommended Posts

Inspired by @Angrydickymusing about the excellent Anglia Motel in Spalding - I realised this would be the perfect place for a tyre kicking and a plate of cholesterol.  After all, it is classic Autoshite territory.

ANGLIA MOTEL AND RESTAURANT, Spalding - Updated 2021 Restaurant Reviews,  Photos & Phone Number - Tripadvisor

The reviews include "terrible", "awful customer service" and other appealing vocabulary.  It's also got a flat roof...

No photo description available.



Should we say a Sunday towards the end of October?  I know some people SORN at that time anyway, so it'd be a good way of using up the last of the petrol (if you can still get any by then).

Anyone keen?

That seems like exactly my sort of place, alas it's several hundred miles away so not in the slightest practical.

..... Love a run out, me

I think the reviews for this place are very unfair.

Yes, the girl serving behind the counter was quite surly. She was fit, though, so I wasn’t too fussed. The owner is an old bloke who is really into his military history. Lovely bloke and very friendly.  There’s a little jumble sale by the door with all proceeds going to charity.

My food has been good and reasonably priced,  all the times I’ve been there.

A lot of negative reviews come from the fact that they don’t people other than actual customers use their toilets. I think that’s fair enough really and to be fair there’s a massive sign by the door stating the same.

The decor is something else. I think there’s three different types of artex in there for a start! There is an equally dated looking bar/function room adjoining the cafe, but I don’t get the impression that gets much use!

Yeah that’s the place. Never tried the other one, i think anything would be a disappointment after the AM.

Interesting to read about the history of the place.
