Great evening meal in very relaxed, informal atmosphere with friendly staff. Food was great (vegetarian ravioli, two burgers and ribs) and my husband reckoned our sons ribs were the best he had ever tasted. Definitely worth a visit

I only called for coffee but the seats outside under the trees on the canalside are a lovely spot. Busy place but quick pleasant service by staff taking their lives in their hands to cross the road with your food and drink
