Everyone really put the effort in to everything here I thought and seemed like they cared about it, the specials board was taller than me and the cake is all delicious, definitely a must go

The staff are always friendly. The food is reliably good and varied. Lots of daily “specials”. Cosy and pleasant in the rain or snow(!). Canal view from veranda. With blankets and heaters for the cold or a sun trap.

Booked a table here for Saturday lunch with my parents, sister & niece. Food was freshly prepared and delicious. Great quick service and all reasonably priced. This place is a little gem and intend to go more often.
