LUNCHTIME you cannot buy a coffee without paying greatly over the odds,over £7 for a coffee and a biscuit. This is at lunchtime untill 2- 30 .what a rip off.

An indifferent latte, tea and an oat biscuit here cost £6.90 and was definitely not worth it. Asked for soya milk with the tea (carton seen behind counter so they had it) but was ignored by the surly woman serving me. Could not sit by the window as we were only having a drink and not a cooked meal. Avoid!!

Very poor restaurant .
We only wanted a light lunch of soup and sandwiches, and we were promptly moved from the table over looking the river to a table near the cash desk. Despite the rest of the tables being empty
Soup was passable but sandwich was not fresh made but in a packet.
Service very poor.
Do not be fooled by the nice setting.

We used the shop several times and wished now we had discovered the other one sooner. Its location naturally draws you in, when a short walk would give you a better option. It has pretty much everything you need if staying self catering, either boat or apartment. What annoyed me was the fact that 50% of my purchases were not scanned but manually entered, no receipt was ever offered and only on about the third visit did i actually realise one item had been entered incorrectly and a higher priced item charged. This was corrected when i pointed it out.
My advice..ask for a receipt and have some idea what you have spent.
