We are sorry that you had an issue yesterday but the Bashley Manor Tearooms is a separately run business to the Museum. Therefore could you please direct your complaint to their Trip Advisor's page and not to the Museums. Thank you.

A terrific collection of beautifully restored and presented bikes. Mainly racing bikes from early years to more recent times. A great walk down memory lane for anyone who has watched bile racing for the last 50 yeas or so!

Always a good day out and now, with the added petting area, there's something for the less motorcycle inclined. I took a friend who had never been before and arranged to meet up with another, there. He arrived with a first-time visitor, too. A great...More
