Perfect place to come to have a chilled out drink and a walk around the lake. Dogs more than welcome as well which is lovely. If you come for an evening meal, chose an evening when they have live music, the atmosphere is amazing.

Had a lazy ramble through the woods and fields, saw a heron visiting one of the ponds, tried to keep quiet whilst walking past the fishers of men, then off for a well earned lunch. Best chips I’d had for a long time.
