The new revamped cafe with a Pizza stall is superb. A place for all the family and a wide selection of food and drinks for the whole family. You can watch the wildlife, spot things along the nature trail and you can get around easily...More

I really like this place. It consists of a cafe, education room and wildlife area. The cafe is small and the staff are friendly. *They can only take payments in cash*. Food is good with a wide menu - usually go for the light bite...More

Unfortunately the cafe doesn't take cards (which I understand as still many small businesses dont) but luckily we had some cash to buy hot drinks and teacakes. The staff were wonderful. Cleared our table quickly and brought drinks promptly. Really friendly and made a fuss...More
