Good selection of snacks, nice that it isn't all sandwiches. Great spot on a sunny day but still nice to eat in if the weather isn't so good.

A lovely canal side restaurant, friendly staff and good quality food. There are some lovely canal walks and plenty of narrow boats .... Plenty of free parking space outside the restaurant... lovely walks followed by a pint at the mucky duck... Tony

There are getting fewer and fewer places left to simple just do nothing, however Fradley Junction provides such a place. We spent a couple of hours 'gongoozaling' from the luxury of a table supplied with good coffee and excellent cake. Car parking is good value...More
