It's nice to have a place like this in Otterspool & the food was ok. I took my two boys & ordered two kids meals & a jacket potato for me plus three soft drinks. I didn't expect to pay almost £19!! Such a shame.

“Overpriced and bad service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

We live around the corner and we've visited Otters on several occasions. Each time the service has been slow, our order has been wrong and the staff quite rude. It's also very overpriced for the quality of food.

Came on feb 20th.
ordered penne pasta, garlic bread and home made chips. They were all lovely and for desert we had lemon drizzle which was also very nice. I would recommend this place to anyone as it's very relaxed and great for either tea and cake or an actual meal!

“Sadly, won't return after recent change of management”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

Have been many times but won't return. There has been a change of management and an almost immediate downturn in service. Went yesterday and found it dirty and chaotic with a 25 minute wait for 2 coffees and cake.
The once-extensive menu has gone and been replaced with a 'chips with everything' menu. There was a board outside advertising some specials which looked like it was written by a six year old, complete with 4 spelling mistakes. The floor was littered with debris and downright dirty, as were the tables. The tea was vile.
Somehow, it already manages to feel like a crappy park cafe, which it never was before; it had personality and a bit of style.
The families and 'yummy mummies' won't continue to frequent the place for very long if it continues to slide.
Genuinely disappointed and probably won't bother again.
