Its three years since our last review and we have visited on a fairly regular basis and always been happy with the choice, quality, freshness of food and service. In particular there is always a wide choice of gluten free options for my coeliac wife.

If this was the riverside cafe with Barton Grange I’d be giving 5 based on just the soup alone! But I can’t find it... The willows is ok they have beautiful blood orange tea that is so refreshing and more-ish. However I didn’t rate the...More
