“Best food on the grand union”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Fantastic food at excellent prices. Avrils breakfast is no good to you unless you bring your appetite with you. YOU WILL NOT LEAVE HUNGRY.

“So overrated”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's a boat with tables and a huge reputation for a gut-busting breakfast. It's in Braunston at ground zero for the canals and it is overrun. The breakfast IS huge but it's not that special and it costs alot more than other caff breakfasts in the area and you are going to have to wait at least 45 minutes (longer on the weekends) to be served this pricey, huge but not very special plate of egg, bacon & sausage with all the trimmings. If the queue is not too bad you can have a better experience by having one of their bacon sarnies (which come with a few slices of fried potato? why?) and sitting in their patch of garden...but then you can't watch the boats. I know it is mentioned in books etc etc but really not the very best experience you can have in Braunston.

“Breakfast on the canal”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Gongoozlers is actually a canal boat moored next to the Stop House close by the canal entrance into Braunston Marina. It is not easy to find but well worth seeking out. Gongoozlers is not really a restaurant in the normal sense of the meaning but more a canalside cafe serving terrific breakfasts and cooked snacks throughout the morning and early afternoon. The breakfasts are incredibly filling as are the range of baguettes and other offerings. Food quality was outstanding and the most amazing thing is that it is all produced from a tiny galley at the stern end of the boat. Not fast food but food produced as fast as possible to (more or less) quote their own description. Seating is either on the boat itself or in the adjacent riverside garden. Loved our two visits and will make a point of visiting again as soon as the waistline has decreased again!
