Thanks. I will let them know.

For those arriving on the Thursday, the pub does not do food on Thursdays but there are places around to eat.

We are booked in for Diggerland on the 24th. I have purchased 10 tickets to secure our discount. £13.99 each. So 10 will have to go through with me and pay me. Everyone else says Imp club and gets the discount at the gate. Should be fun. Price includes the rides.

Now back home after a great weekend in Devon.
A big thank you to James and Jason for organising it all. Also the staff at the Black Cock Inn who kept us fed and watered at their lovely site.
Another 699 miles added to the Chamois, now just over 116000!

What a great weekend. We have a loads of Thank yous from Imp club members who attended the 2nd Full English weekend, organised by Jason and me. We are very grateful for the positive comments but it’s the people who attended who made the event work. Too many to list here but Thankyou to all of you. The Black Cock Inn were amazing. Their laid back attitude and sense of humour was a great help. The weather was definitely on our side, beautifully sunny all weekend. One of the biggest highlights was seeing 5 year old Ben Morgan’s excitement at finding out we were going to Diggerland.

Uneventful journey home (apart from the nob in a Skoda Superb).

I had an absolutely brilliant time. Incredible weather (apparently it's like that all year).
The campsite was made for Impers, laid back but with everything you need. The pub was great, good booze, great staff and loads and loads and loads of really good food, too much really but it was a holiday!

Great roads, great sights, great ice cream. Great Scott! Have we got to wait a year for the next one?!

I thought the first Full English would be hard to beat, this one beat it hands down. Thank you Jason & James.

Thanks from Gill, John and Michael too - fabulous weekend with great company.
Thanks to all!
Mostly clear gentle journey home in a little under 5 hours, very nearly 200 miles and just over 4 gallons :-)

Everything that Baz said .. we had a great weekend. OK we didn't go to Diggerland, but Izzy got to play on the beach and swim in the sea instead. Big, big thanks to James & Jason for organising everything - the camp fire was a tremendous end to Saturday. The owners of the Black Cock certainly helped make it such a great weekend by being so eager to help us enjoy ourselves. It was great meeting up with so many friends. Leaving is always sad, but we look forward to the next one.

Phil & Lesley..

Thank you to Jason and James for organising a superb chilled out event. The pub were *AMAZING* - couldn't be any more helpful if they tried - and the site was divine.

And Ben says thanks for the "awesome" time he had with all his "Imp Club friends". 8)

Enjoy it everybody and hope to see you all at National instead.

I suspect great roads and cider will figure highly.

Well spotted Andy - I didn't see it as I was planning to arrive from the other direction. So they must have been filming when we were there last year - wonder if they managed to film anyone

Well it's happening! Full English 2019 has started with Roy and Dawn arriving about 2.45pm closely followed by yours truly about 15 mins later. Phil and Leslie arrived about 5.30pm. The pub is normally closed on a Thursday but they've opened it just for us. Well, just for me at the moment! A whole pub to myself, what could possibly go wrong? :twisted:

Back home after an excellent 'Full English Weekend' - well - to be honest - a 'Full English long Weekend' for us. Great company, great location, great runs, and the weather was pretty kind to us. Thanks to everyone there for your company - and special thanks to James & Jason for organising such a fine event and also to Lou and Glor at the Blackcock inn for making us so welcome.

Back home also, after a 696 mile round trip. Another great weekend in Devon.
Big thank you to James and Jason and the staff of the Black Cock Inn.

We arrived home mid afternoon - Lesley drove Hilda all of the way avoiding motorways except for Severn Bridge - took a bit longer but was very relaxed and enjoyable. We had a great time at the event - many thanks to James & Jason. Some great runs, great views/scenery etc. Weather was great except Sunday but even that got better. Nice food and refreshments in the pub. A really great event with Imp friends.

cheers !!

Another brilliant Full English! James and Jason did us proud yet again - roll on next year :D :D
Great weather, even the little bit of rain was short lived and warm :D
Once again the Black Cock did us proud and we even went past the Blue Ball Inn again, didn't see any monkeys though.
I managed to knacker my ankle on the Thursday so was limping around all weekend but it seems to be on the mend.
Next stop, Silverstone Classic weekend :)
