If Carlsberg did Sausage rolls...

The Cafe in the Park has to have the best home made sausage rolls around. I'd highly recommend the cafe for food and coffee. It does get busy and the queue can be long but it is worth the wait.

I went with my family to the Aquadrome and saw the cafe, we decided to go in and have some food. It was very expensive, and not that tasty so we will not be back again. I would make sure we have a picnic lunch next time we visit the Aquadrome again. Sorry but that is my opinion and I... More

Great location in the aquedrome and a varied menu. However, this is not good value for money or outstanding quality of food.

We ate here on a busy Saturday (Canal festival and fun fair) for lunch. Despite it being so busy we found a table easily and joined the fast moving queue. The food was good - really good - but the menu is not that extensive and it wasn't that easy to choose food for fussy kids. Never the less, they... More

Who could ask for more. A lovely cafe in the beautiful surroundings of the aquadrome. They serve homemade cakes and have a great selection of these plus other foods. They are very environment conscious and are always so friendly and greet every customer with a smile. Love going here at any time of the year!

Had lunch at the café. The food was a bit quirky, but delicious. Much is locally sourced and a bias towards healthy eating. Staff were friendly and helpful, though the queue for ordering can get a bit long. Lovely setting by the aquadrome with plenty of seating outside.

Obviously very popular given the amount of people and for good reason. Excellent, home style organic food and reasonable prices in a beautiful location. A perfect place for Sunday lunch with all the family.

Just enjoyed a lovely lunch here. The Wobbly Bottom burgers are to die for. Got to be one of the best burgers I've eaten. Very friendly staff and great family atmosphere.

So happy to hear you enjoyed our Wobbly Bottom burger - so called because the cheddar we use is from Wobbly Bottom Farm in Hertfordshire. We have worked hard on our burger (lots of research has been required, poor us!) and we are really pleased with he result. Homemade brioche bun, homemade piquillo mayo, Aberdeen Angus beef using chuck and... More

What a shame you feel like that, I can't imagine I will change your mind but of course I must defend our business and perhaps start with our five star hygiene 'scores on the doors' award or our three star sustainability award, all given to us in recognition of our systems and confidence in management. In terms of our prices,... More

With so many average places to eat in Rickmansworth it is good news that we have this excellent cafe situated in the Aquadrome . Top quality ingredients coupled with fantastic attention to detail make this a great family brunch / lunch . It's on the expensive side but well worth it
