Came here recently with family, food all well presented including tasty pizzas, only disapointing dish was the burger which was found to be over seasoned too salty, that said would most certainly come here again, as nice atmosphere and very large gin list to continue...More

Stopped at the canal for a walk with my daughter and dog. Popped in for a coffee and cake. Dogs allowed and children welcomed.

This was our first time at this restaurant and most certainly not our last. In fact we’re booking to go back again after Christmas. Great choice on the menu-I always go for a salad and wasn’t disappointed in my mackerel nicoise. Not a big portion...More

What a wonderful place. Great breakfast and dog friendly. Then called in later that day for coffee and cake. Great atmosphere and staff. Well worth the 30 mile drive.

Fab bistro, with a great gin selection. Waiting staff really friendly and knowledgeable about the food and drinks menus. Will definitely return in the Summer to take advantage of the setting

Called in without a booking and we were lucky enough to get a table as it was quite busy. The staff were very helpful and friendly without coming across as pushy. I opted for the Sunday roast and my partner went for a Chicken Caesar...More

Called here for lunch on a quiet day, not too many in. Great chatty staff ( if you make the effort too!). Decor tasteful, canal-side, free wifi. Plenty of space between tables. Don't be fooled by the apparent simplicity of the menu, even the sandwiches...More
