Despite it almost being on my doorstep, it was a TripAdvisor recommendation that got me to check out the Canal Walk Cafe. Eating out can be such an anti-climax these days; expectations of culinary delights at affordable prices is normally met with over-priced processed fodder, the quality of which you wouldn’t feed the dog.
So it was such a joy to experience exceptional food, in a comfortable environment, served with attention to detail by someone who obviously cares about every plate that leaves the kitchen. Of the four different main courses ordered by our party, every meal was superbly presented with just the right amount of food to not leave you hungry or give you stomach ache. The goats cheese and beetroot risotto, the beef, the pork, the chicken, the accompanying vegetables; all were exceptional.
One of the party has a serious nut allergy, but as everything is made on the premises, we knew that whatever was ordered would be safe and that included the mouth watering deserts, which is extremely rare for allergy sufferers. So what's the catch? None - even the wine menu is well balanced and good value.
I cannot recommend The Canal Walk Cafe enough. Cafe by day, restaurant by night, it just needs more bums on seats to make sure this little piece of heaven becomes an establishment that will survive the current economic climate. It deserves to.
