A great, clean and tidy, well set out craft centre and restaurant - both indoor and outdoor seating available. Food - both meals and snacks - very good and value for money. All under the personal control of the Owner, who obviously prides himself on delivering a good customer experience. Can fully recommend.

We popped in for coffee and a scone while walking the Lancaster Canal. The coffee was hot and surprisingly cheap. Sitting in the garden on the canal bank gave us the chance to rest for a while.

I've visited here a few times with family and my fiancé. The food has always been very good. I usually have soup, sandwich or a jacket potato and you get a good size portion with salad and coleslaw. My fiancé had a roast last time which he said was really good. The cakes look lovely but I've always been too... More

Nice bite to eat during a bike ride along the canal towpath. Pleasant staff, good food and so nice to sit out on the grassed area next to the canal. Would certainly eat here again.

Stopped here on the way to the lakes a real find! Home made soup, proper sandwiches & scrumptious cakes. Lovely spot on the canal.

Nice little cafe for breakfast and seating next to the canal makes it a lovely place to seat watching the boats to go by. Would have given a five but only do poached eggs and not fried or scrambled for breakfasts

Good food, cold beer, friendly staff and efficient service. Sitting outside by the Canal, watching boats and ducks was glorious.

Travelling on the A6 we had planned to stop for lunch at the Plough but the car park was full so we retraced our steps to the Craft Centre and we were glad we did. Quick service, home made food, lovely young ladies serving and very reasonable prices. What more could you want, we will go again

Popped in on a filthy day and decided to have the most awesome scones cream and jam with a great coffee. Very nice location and really nice environment. A really nice way to spend an hour with delightful staff. (Watch the traffic when leaving and turning right). Excellent
