    Been for coffee a couple of times - very good.
    Food menu looks excellent - will certainly try in the coming weeks.
    Farm shop has a large variety of local produce and at a reasonable price.

    it looks really impressive! ive just been on a 3d tour and i like the idea of the 'floating' seating area, although i can imagine the mozzies being a bit of a pain in summer.

    it would be good to go for a visit though :)

    Using those marvelous Westons Organic boxes you'd have very little wasted space, whilst being very wasted.

    It would be difficult to get a barge there, as they are too wide to fit in the locks on the Trent and Mersey Canal.

    Are we about to have a barge vs. narrowboat debate? Shoes has already had a pedantry issue today...
