Absolutely terrible Sunday lunch, completely tasteless. It was very cheap, but maybe increase the cost and quality. Have had tea and cake many times and enjoyed, but avoid Sunday lunch.

A present to us and very good this was too. There is a canteen feeling so atmosphere could be better though large picture windows looking out onto the wetlands was impressive. Sadly the strong December afternoon sun (yes we do get this here from time to time) resulted in serious glare which was a shame. A pleasant afternoon.

Snacks are now regrettably quite expensive e.g £2.75 for a sausage bun and the latte coffees rather weak that we now have think twice about eating here and often... More

We came into the restaurant freezing cold to find a warm welcome & a delicious gluten free hot chocolate & scone suitable for me as a Coeliac; gorgeous. Thank you to the helpful, friendly staff.

Often call in here when we are out with the grandkids at Saltholme. It’s a good day out and the café is ideal for a bite to eat.
