Met some friends and had a lovely lunch... Homemade quiche salad and potatoes. Very good quality and service. Took a homemade sausage roll home for my husband too and he said it was delicious.

Went for lunch with friends. Lively setting next to the boatyard. Food and staff were very good and reasonably priced. Lots of homemade cakes to try. We weren’t disappointed. Our friends were going to try breakfast later in the week.

As the café is on the first floor I think there may well be accessibility problems. There is seating outside but of course you're then reliant on the weather. Best to get in touch with the staff directly yourself.
