It was great to welcome members of a Coventry and Midlands Classic Car Club to Whilton Locks Garden Village at the weekend. The cars were lined up in rows, in the Garden Centre car park, whilst the drivers and navigators enjoyed lunch in our Potting Shed – a new part of our Canalside restaurant – it’s perfect for group bookings.
If your group, outing or large special occasion would like a meeting point with food and drink – we can offer ‘off the menu’ or even a bespoke set meal (or choice if meals) for your budget. We are flexible enough to cater (no pun intended!) for all your groups needs – and you can be all together in the Potting Shed for a private function, within the main Canalside restaurant or even canal-side, on our terrace if the weather is good!
Whilton Locks Garden Village witnesses a number of groups passing through some of the stunning Warwickshire/Northamptonshire countryside – by car, cycle and of, course canal. We are a great stop-off with able parking.
The Classic Car group were taking part in Drive It Day – an annual UK-wide celebration of older cars.
Here’s what what said:
“A successful, if somewhat British Standard Grey, week-late Drive it Day for the Coventry & Midlands group, starting from just outside Rugby and stopping off in Braunston at Neil Bannister’s to meet up with more members. Carrying on out through some lovely country villages and lanes with several gated roads and ending up at Whilton Locks Garden Village where we all had a meal in the Potting Shed – and very nice it was too.
Many thanks to Neil for providing mid-point refreshments and Whilton Locks Garden Village staff for being so helpful and making us feel so welcome. All who came along seemed to enjoy the run and also the meal at the end. Thanks for everyone who came along to make it such an enjoyable day.”
