very good coffee and cream scone here this morning, friend's bacon buttie and soup looked lovely too. Some items a bit pricey but other things well priced. Only complaint - piped music - too loud for certain and actually - maybe people come here for the peace and quiet and don't want to listen to someone else's musical taste...... maybe... More

Simple but imaginative food, excellent value and highest quality ingredients, beautifully prepared and served in a picturesque setting on the banks of the Leeds Liverpool Canal. I've passed by this place a few times during cycle rides along the towpath. Don't make that mistake. On a sunny day sat on that wood decked terrace you could be in the South... More

Been here a few times and thought I would give a little thumbs up review as I find trip advisor so helpful. My husband is a keen cyclist and I know he and his friends stop off here for refueling in all weather conditions. I myself have only been on weekends following a walk down the nearby canal and it...

We regularly walk along the canal but have not been in to the tea room until this weekend. We loved it so much we ended up visiting it twice! The first time we stopped for tea, coffee and crumpets which was lovely. The setting is delightful alongside the canal and the staff are friendly and efficient. We love the fact... More

Called in here for a cup of tea on a walk down the canal and the place was rammed! They have 4 mini wooden gazebo things which are an excellent idea in chilly weather as they really keep off the wind. Not the most comfortable seats to sit in unfortunately. Lovely Yorkshire Tea served at the table - they do... More

Excellent idea. Was nicely busy. Drinks and food was nice, but we was shocked at the extremely high prices! Maybe lower the prices of the crumpets, toast, current teacakes, etc. Food for the dogs was a brilliant idea and good value for money.
