I was expecting a little more from a café in such an attractive park, however I was disappointed. The two young females behind the counter gave the impression that customers were an inconvenience and the service was very "matter of fact" and with no enthusiasm. It wasn't very busy either so goodness only knows what they would be like if... More

The park I give 5 stars- fabulous. But my one star is for the cafe. On arrival we were told our order would be 15 minutes. One hour later we still didn't have the sandwiches. 2 children sat and waited patiently but this is completely unacceptable. We asked twice and were told it's on its way. Just as we gave... More

I've used this cafe a reasonable amount over the years and the quality and service has always been 4/5, hence accepting and not even mentioning the mistake they made with our order this visit as errors happen, however this visit I was left astounded when having ordered & paid for two rounds of coffee & food they flatly refused to...

We visited the park with our grandchildren on a wet grey day.This cafe had character - iy was a nice, interesting place to be. We were made welcome by friendly staff and the sandwiches we had were freshly made for us. Three lots of sandwiches and two pots of tea cost just over £12 which I think is value for... More

We decided to have our works Christmas dinner at the cafe, they were very accommodating and we had a very warm and festive welcoming. The food was impeccable and the portions were huge :) I got told that they made nearly everything on the menu even including the patè! Very impressed and would highly recommend
