Very small so limited on what it could do. If it could be extended somehow this place could be a truly fantastic venue.

Great cafe to complement the sights and scenes of the Caen Hill flight of locks. Nothing fancy, just what you need after walking around or messing about in boats.

It is a lovely idea having a cup of coffee etc (they do some food) but it really does depend on the weather. there are only about 20 covers inside and it's quite easy for all the seating to get taken by people with their personal possessions, prams etc. So we were there on a fairly cold and breezy Saturday...

I wrote about this in the Caen Hill locks attaction section accidentally... but this cafe is perfectly placed with a great view downhill of the locks. It is small - there are only a few tables inside and out but they were busy even in winter. It must be heaving in the summer. They sell a wide selection of drinks... More

This is a lovely little tea Shop serving hot and cold food, teas and coffee, nice clean toilets and staff very pleasant. Tableas indoors or outside where you have a view to the locks.

Was so glad to see you open on a chilly November morning. We got a warm welcome, able to take our doggy in thank you and really enjoyed the bacon sarnie, nice bacon on brown bread or white bap with lots of sauce available. Will definitely go again thank you.

We stop here when ever we take a bike ride along the canal from Melksham towards Devizes and beyond. It's great for a cuppa and a piece of cake.
