  • Really great now that's it's been refurbished. Lovely outdoor seating and a good size inside. Prices are good too. Obviously it gets super busy especially in the summer. A great place for a coffee while the kids run around in the playground or chase the ducks!
  • Great little cafe serving good range of food. Has nice covered seating area if you have been a walk with your dog or on a nice day to sit and children can play on grass.
  • Plenty of pleasant helpful staff who work hard so not left waiting too long. Very good food, you can sit inside or outside or take your food away and sit around the lake on benches or in the playground while your children play. There are also items for children and adults in the cafe to keep them occupied while waiting it having coffee.
  • Being visiting this place since I easy a young child, then with my children. It's been fun seeing it evolve to a very busy popular cafe. Very informal with dog walkers, young families and older people. It has grown from a very basic ' shed' to a warm cafe with good food and cakes.
  • The coffee is nothing to write home about but the food and cakes are great and it's probably the prettiest situated cafe in the area. Stunning surroundings.
