Visited the Poppies, then had a fresh oatcake. Normally stop off when riding along the canal. Friendly service and delicious freshly cooked oatcake.

This was the first time we had seen the oat cake boat and it won’t be the last. They offer different fillings and at a reasonable price. Very friendly service. They use a family recipe which they wouldn’t share.
