Very pleasant place to stop for a coffee or for lunch overlooking the nature reserve. Binoculars are supplied for you to have a closer look. There is also a shop to purchase books or gifts all helping a good cause.

We stopped here for breakfast and enjoyed bacon baps and tea outside on the terrace overlooking the marshes. The sun shone and a skylark serenaded us from the top of a small tree nearby, (obviously a lot easier than doing all that flying whilst singing)....More

A hot day saw us on the outdoor veranda where we enjoyed watching the marsh via a telescope and enjoying a most pleasant and good value lunch. Now a prime site along this coast and well worth a visit.

There is nothing to fault the resorce or location here; but the cafe staff really should refrain from picking nose-picking, before, during and after serving you. Truly gag-worthy!

One of the few places in England where you can watch Marsh Harriers whilst eating a meal at the same time. Has a good shop as well.

A first class reserve with good cafe and shop.Friendly staff and good hides. We saw Marsh harriers and Avocets Lapwing,Egrets and Shellduck, Heron and Reed Warblers, Skylark and more. A lovely setting to relax and enjoy the wonderful views and birdlife.

Unfortunately I don't know as I do not work there. However, it is worth phoning or calling in, nothing to loose. They look as though they could follow with help at weekends, it took me 20minutes to get served on Sunday last... More

As above I'm afraid. Have you googled Chris Woods website? There should be a play list on there. What a lovely venue for a folk concert if he is on there. Have fun.
