“Waiter service while you are fishing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Its absolutly true! I dont know of anywhere else where you can get an excellent selection of bait, park by the bank and unload, set up the rods,start fishing and then ring up and order a full english breakfast delivered to you at your swim piping hot. £5.00 for a full english isnt bad anywhere but this is excellent in size and service. Plus you get to catch fish and believe me if you hook a carp of 8 to 10 lb on light tackle they do hang on! There are a few 20Lb fish lurking about as well, together with tench, silver bream, roach, rudd, chub and a few trout. Thats the stream. There are three lakes here as well with carp to over thirty lb and larger fish of all types as well. Its really well looked after and a pleasure to walk round fo a stroll. Fields full of sheep surround it and add to the country feel of the place.

Its also the home of unity baits which sell good quality bait and tacke at a very reasonable price. There are some regular bargains to be had on both. The best method I have found is method feeder with drilled halibut pellet on a short hair rig topped with artificial floating sweet corn fished tight against the far bank, allthough Ive caught on float with maggot and lunceon meat as well. You can camp beside the swim with small tents or Bivvies and if its not crowded then campervans and caeavans are accepted by arrangement. You can also eat in the cafe next to the tackle shop if you want a warm up in the winter.
They also have accomodation in rather nice looking flats on site. Check out their website for the latest prices. All the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpfull and will do all they can to ensure your visit is as good as it can be.
