“Nice breakfast and good place to start a walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

A lovely location on the banks of the Montgomery Canal. We have been their twice recently, once as a recce for a walk, then the actual day with friends.

You receive a warm and friendly welcome from the staff. Nice teas and coffee and great bacon / sausage baps for a breakfast. Scones were wonderful as well.

Our friends enjoyed this venue as an excellent place to have refreshments and a pit stop after a long journey to get to the starting point for our walk along the canal.

“Perfect place for breakfast!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

We are regulars to Canal Central as we only live a short 3 mile walk down the canal.

On arrival we can then chill out and enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast with loose leaf tea and ground coffee on the banks of the Montgomery Canal.

On this occasion we hired a canoe and set off with Jack our Son up the canal for a very funny day filled with banter off our canoeing skills........or lack of!

I would highly recommend Canal Central for walkers, cyclists, caravan and campers (electric hook up's on site) or just a drive out for great food and hospitality from Ian and Fiona.

“Tranquillity found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

My wife and some friends have been lucky enough to spend the most relaxing weekend here at Canal Central. The accommodation above the tea rooms is, as their website states 'idyllic' set on the most peaceful of river beds. and the Tea Rooms themselves offer tranquil vibes in a family friendly and happy environment. You can even hire canoes to explore the local river and surrounding area, Beautiful walks with wildlife in every direction, this is a special place that will be our weekend away for years to come!

“Place with a quirk.”

Superb, quirky little café right next to the Montgomery canal. You can even hire a Canadian canoe for a small donation to explore the canal. Lovely people with superbly cooked snacks ad proper coffee!
