Free car park by the canal with a tea room opposite. The tea room sells basic sandwiches, tuna, cheese etc. with a good selection of cakes plus ice cream. Friendly staff but it does get busy so be prepared to wait a little for food....More

This has become a favourite spot for meeting business colleagues. It is quiet and easily accessible. The food is limited but of high quality. Their hot chocolate is really good according to my daughter.

We had coffee and cake all was very nice but the cups were a little on the small side. The view to the canal is obscured by the tall hedge. A nice stop at the end of a walk.
