Breakfast was amazingly fresh and tasted beautiful. Great coffee and teas too. The atmosphere is so relaxed you just want to stay longer. The outdoor seating has fires going and is is cosy. Would definitely visit again and try other times and the wine bar!

There are not many places that you can relax by the river, enjoying the beautiful colours of the leaves and trees while eating a tasty, sumptuous, breakfast. The menu is diverse with options for everyone. The staff very attentive. A perfect start to the day.

On a crisp autumn morning the sight of the open wood fires lured us in for breakfast as we wandered past, and thank goodness we went in. The food is wonderful, the staff are great, and the place is rustic with a delightful outlook over...More

Quirky café which serves excellent coffee, and incredible food. The Ricotta hot-cakes are absolutely fantastic, and we love the friendly, professional staff.

Located at the “water park” end of town, this restaurant has a great feel to it, rustic decor, great open fires to snuggle up to and lovely views over the park (autumn is sensational!!). Add to this, very switched on and friendly staff and food...More

With my disabilities and weird appetite couldn't ask for better service from a delightful bunch of staff. Allowing dogs a big plus!makes you feel at home.

The environment here is fantastic. The service and grumpy staff leave a lot to be desired. My group of friends gave this establishment a go twice and both times the service staff were unfriendly. A big disappointment for a lovely Bright place.

We ate at the Ginger Baker twice during our weeks stay. A very rustic place, two wood burners to keep you warm, lovely owner. Dogs are allowed to come in. All the dishes were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. We would definitely go there again.

Super fast and efficient service, which is appreciated when you eat with kids. Coffee was A1, food even better. Their breakfast menu is brilliant and the view outt towards the river can't be beaten. Highly recommended

Yes you can bring dogs outside with you, I brought mine. Having said that don't expect good service! I was far from impressed! Good luck
