Called in for a bite to eat yesterday, not been before and was pleasantly surprised as it's a lovely tranquil setting. The cafe is quite basic with tables inside and outside but the food was good and served quickly, no complaints really!

The delph is ok for some training, but literally nothing else. The visibilty is terrible, and the staff even more so. The owner is grumpy, rude and his other friends in reception also incredibly unhelpful. If you want to go, take cash or you'll end...More

Call in often with The Boss. Great cooked breakfasts and hot lunchtime food as well as snacks and delicious home baked cakes. Staff friendly and welcoming and very good value. All this and overlooking a beautiful lake and scenery. A hidden gem.
