Children seem welcome, dogs welcome outside (and definitely welcome). It isn't 5 star dining - but it... read more

This café is beautifully situated next to the Lancaster canal and when the weather permits it is possible to sit outside on the bank of the canal. Inside, the craft centre and tea room is quite spacious and is well laid out. There is a good selection of main meals plus the usual selection of snacks and cakes and wine... More

Great alternative to the service station and far more character. Dropped through after a recommendation and it did not disappoint, would be a great spot for Sunday lunch. Our server Katie was courteous and nothing too much trouble even when it was busy. We will be back.

I didn't eat here so can't comment on the food but while looking for somewhere to meet up with an old work colleague I hadn't seen in years, we decided on this place. We only got a coffee at first and went outside and up the steps to sit at a bench by the canal. The sun was shining and... More

Lovely view of the canal food not a lot to choose from and a little expensive. Staff are very friendly. Car park at side of the craft cafe.

I like it here. There's a lovely view by the canal. However, whoever's doing the menu has got a bit carried away by the twee setting and must think only millionaires are stopping by for a bite to eat. £7-00 odd for a baked potato - how much? Have I been transported into the twenty-second century? Maybe the potato was... More
