  • Visited for Mother's day.. and of course as expected it was busy. Despite this the service was good and the staff were friendly. My starter was tomato soup. Uninspiring ? It actually turned out to be the best tomato soup I have ever tasted! Everybody else was equally impressed with their own choices, squid, pate etc. The main courses were similarly impressive and cooked to perfection. The chef clearly has ability and takes pride in the quality of food served up. Would certainly return again and recommend.
  • Discovered the marina today, and very impressed. Free parking. Nice cafes and bars on the Boardwalk. Interesting shops. The circular walks starting from the marina around the area are very good. Check out the Willow Spiral beside the canal walk, it's quite moving.
  • Spent a full day at this marina and enjoyed the surrounding walks, which take you around Willington and the beautiful canal system. The cafes and little shops are very well staffed and the food served is generally very good indeed. I have no idea who funded this development, but I'd say that it was quite outstanding and will only get better in the future. Definitely worth a visit. Well done Willington!!
  • Characterful area with some good walks and plenty to pique interest around the marina. Good cafĂ© and restaurant too.
  • Love the shops and the waterfront cafes. You can walk to Willington across the walkway. The assistants in the shops are extremely pleasant and patient.
