Set in a lovely location on the canal, the White Cross serves good food (with gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options) and good beer. Staff are always friendly, welcoming and attentive. A good place to meet up with friends for lunch.

Can you re-phrase your question? This is a lovely quiet restaurant on the camel and is great for food; I would recommend. I would, however, maybe book before going if you have a large party.
