Moored at Bridge 18 for lunch here and its an absolute gem. Individual shops, lovely setting with plenty of seating. Darlingtons was excellent for lunch.

Different place to shop with a variety of small shops to browse, some of which have quality items as opposed to the run of the mill outlets found in most towns. Also lovely cafe which serves good food at reasonable prices . Worth a visit.
