We held an event here. Canalside location unbeatable, interior funky, food & drink was great & the staff couldn't do enough for everyone. Came back for breakfast & drinks recently & it was still as good!

Lovely canal side seating. Food is great and super filling. A bit quirky but it's actually worth a visit. Really tasty and good drinks too.
