excellent if you're walking a dog, my little yorkie loves running around a chasing the ducks and i love feeding the ducks my crusts. we even saw a big bird that i've never seen before so there's a lot of wildlife around here so it's good for an avid birdwatcher or the avid dog lover!

Nice friendly cafe overlooking Corby Boating Lake. Excellent value and quite simply the best breakfast in town.

Service is superfast. Prices good and food excellent. Don't order the great breakfast unless you are really hungry. It is so big it is a job to eat it all. Good though. Rough and ready place but warm with good grub.

Good clean eatery, cracking mug of tea and a brilliant breakfast, their "fried" eggs are not greasy and taste almost fluffy in texture, great price and value for money

Unexpected area of peacefulness in spite of being a busy day. Coffee at the cafe was pleasant, where a very kind gentleman realised I couldn't carry two coffees and a walking stick(!) and then a restful time watching the various dusks and geese on the lake while sitting on a bench.

Took my 2 year old, just to feed the ducks and ended up having lunch! Lovely atmosphere, child friendly! Plenty of happy children running around! Sun was out and had a nice local day out! Couldn't fault.

We visited with 3 young children to feed the ducks. A pleasant short walk around what is more of a pond really. A couple of children's play areas - one by the cafe - very convenient if you want a coffee as the kids can play there and you can sit out side the safe to keep an eye on... More
