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.

This is a great venue, very well designed and thought out to be as much divers friendly possible. Great quarry for training, checkup dive and even fun dives.

Another good cycle ride to the Delph Diving Centre in Eccleston . The catering was spot on, served quickly reasonably priced. I'll be returning with more cyclist in the coming months.
