First day of half term so REALLY busy but I had booked a table for 7 on the little boat as we were 3 adults and 4 children who loved the boat. Children's portions for the 3 youngest which were priced appropriately, a bonus as two of them are small eaters. Staff were rushed off their feet but remained pleasant... More

I was expecting a normal cafe but it's far more like a pub. Quite busy but roomy. I only had time for a snack but it was served quickly by friendly staff. It came with a strange bit of side salad, sort of a spoon of tomato and onion bits, it would have been better without it ta very much.... More

We went here last night, and had a lovely evening. The food here is just like well cooked home food. We had my girlfriend had Lasagne and I had Chicken and bacon tagliatelle with cheese and garlic bread. The food was fantastic, great flavour and very good portion size. It is great value for money. The bar has a great... More

Lots of choice and even a 'build your own' option so everyone was happy. Chilled out atmosphere, log fire and big portions. Pretty tasty too!

We popped in for a coffee before our walk down the canal and found it was extremely busy and popular. It was hard to find a seat! Breakfast looked huge and there was a massive choice of food from breakfast to lunch and dinner. It's quite a quaint seating and allows dogs in for all animal lovers. Some customers even... More

By supplying the black pudding that my wife had forgotten to add onto my Boatman's breakfast, Dick helped to restore peace and harmony to my marriage. In all seriousness, we come here as often as we can and have never had a bad breakfast. Such a lovely place, great surroundings and staff that go out of their way to ensure... More

Lovely place and ambience, cheap and cheerful, mass produced large meals, you get what you pay for, probably need to check your cholesterol levels after eating, but its great now and then. Cheap pots of tea (leaky pots obligatory) fast food, does the job and hits the spot. Watch the barges as you drink your tea, or use one of... More
