Mid journey stop off!

We were travelling from the North East to North Wales so decided to break our journey here. It is a lovely craft centre and coffee shop and we had toasties, which came with salad and crisps. We also had cake, of course! Hubby had Bakewell flapjack and I had Tiffin. All the food was tasty! We... read more

We call in about four times a year as a half-way point where we can meet other family members. The staff are always polite, friendly and efficient. The place is always clean, our light snacks and tea/coffee are always good. The cakes look tempting but we usually refrain! We can't comment on the fuller meals but we would expect them... More

We called in here for breakfast on our way home from holiday and were pleased we did. A lovely teacake and breakfast sandwich with two coffees were delicious and reasonably priced. The staff were very polite - would definitely call again if in the area. There is a craft area attached selling cards and jewellery amongst other things.

Cheap and cheerful, food is hot, soup always excellent (as are the scones). I've had several quick lunches with friends - and happily keep going back, It is a canalside cafe with good, hot food. Children seem welcome, dogs welcome outside (and definitely welcome). It isn't 5 star dining - but it isn't meant to be, it is a really... 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.
