We sat outside in nice decked area, where you could take in the view and watch people passing on the canal. The food was lovely. I am sure we will return as it was lunch break for a family cycle.

This cafe is right on the canal tow path and has indoor and outdoor seating. Fabulous food and coffee. All food was prepared to order and can recommend the bacon sandwiches and poached eggs.

Have visited many times with family and friends, never disappointed. Toasted fruit bread and tea for two as a late morning snack. Sitting outside in the sunshine watching the world go by, ideal way to spend a Friday morning.
