Husband and I often have lunch here and when a family gathering this is where we all meet up! Cant praise the Boat Shack enough for friendliness and good food - all with a lake view!

We often eat here, wonderful view across the lake, nice staff and the menu is ok too, it’s close to a walk of bird hides which belong to Worcester wildlife trust.
