After having a walk along the Leeds Liverpool canal (trying to find geo caching with kids) stumbled across this canal side tea room, sun trap setting with a great choice of sandwiches, pains, cakes and the wife's favorite a large glass of sav blanc. She's now organising weekly walks along the canal (I wonder why) Well worth getting the walking... More
