“A gem in the countryside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

A lovely place hidden in Little Baddow - a destination for a coffee or lunch in a fabulous location. It's popular when the weather is good so it can get busy. Well worth a visit though.

Homemade cakes and sandwiches etc in a great setting beside the canal, a good place to start a circular 6 mile walk with tea and cakes to finish

“Fantastic Cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Fantastic cakes to refuel after a nice long walk! This place is very busy due to the nice sanwiches and afternoon tea that is on offer as well as cakes. You can also book on a boat trip around the canal if you fancy it. Well worth a visit if you are out for a stroll!

“A hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Following a friend's recommendation, we paid a visit to to Paper Mill Lock. What a little gem. An excellent friendly tea room.
A casual stroll along the towpath, seeing the lock in action, canoes , so relaxing.
We will be back to taste the scones
