We took my mother out for Sunday lunch by the canal. There were plenty of unreserved tables, and an excellent choice of food, from sandwiches through to hot specials. Ordered the haddock which was very tasty and well presented, and served very quickly. Didn't get round to the desserts on this occasion, but there was a good choice. Plenty of young, enthusiastic staff, even though it is a cold January weekend and the area is quiet, although there was plenty of trade in the cafe.
