“This is my favourite local around the corner, I pop into for Breakfast, lunch or dinner, or just a bottle of prosecco half price on a Thursday evening...fabulous garden and outside eating area. The food is a mixture of fab home cooked food with a great selection of local Beers, wines and coffee's. They even sell our outstanding local homemade fudge in bags to sneak home with. ”

Train Station
“Nice place to visit locally. Has a few quirky shops but would mainly recommend for a walk along the canal and then a bite to eat. A favourite of mine is parking in the station car park and walking through the park and along the canal to the cross guns at Avoncliffe. Dog friendly nice food and a nice walk roughly 30 minutes there and 30 minutes back mainly flat. ”
