  • Have been coming to this park for over 20 years and and always loved the previous cafe. Today was the last time we will visit as the food was extremely poor. The soup was like thickened water with chi...  more »
  • I often meet a friend here and we have seen the park develop over the last decade or so. Hides for bird watching, benches for watching the world go by and a lovely easy walk around the lake and ponds....  more »
  • Decided to try it and it wasn't the worst place I've been too. Staff were busy although there were plenty of them. The best thing was how warm it was. Generally it was clean and there was a good selec...  more »

  • Busy but big enough to cope, the cafe is sweet but busy and a tad pricey. But if you just want a toddle in the sun (or rain) its pretty enough in either. As an aside there are plentiful seats for us less steady toddlers.
  • Lovely place, free parking but £1 donation accepted. Great walk around the lake with a little park and skate ramp area, toilet and tea room. Lovely in summer
  • Very cute, great views, free parking but ask for a £1 donation, this is optional and nobody enforces it there is just a donation box in the car park. The ducks are really friendly, for 30p you can buy a little bag of duck food! This duck food is in a create with a mug in where you donate your 30p. The toilets smelt like my grandma so that was cute
  • Car parking limited but great walk round lake in hot sun-be aware still almost muddy in places due to recent rain and shady areas Saw lovely little goslings on the lake Great place for lunch or coffee at the cafe
  • The park and lake is beautiful but the cafe was disgusting. The staff are rude and obnoxious. Sneezing over food and no service. If you go, take a picnic!
