Free car park by the canal with a tea room opposite. The tea room sells basic sandwiches, tuna, cheese etc. with a good selection of cakes plus ice cream. Friendly staff but it does get busy so be prepared to wait a little for food....More

We had coffee and cake all was very nice but the cups were a little on the small side. The view to the canal is obscured by the tall hedge. A nice stop at the end of a walk.
