We were going to call in as usual on our way north for lunch and coffee. It was disappointing to see the Ferry park cafe has been taken over by Olivers. To the past owners, thanks for the great food and coffee.

Really enjoyed this stopover. Coffee was excellent, and there was a large choice of cakes and muffins, etc. It was 'brunch', so I had 'egg and bacon' sandwich, big enough to share with my husband! Good value.
