We only stopped for a Mr Whippy style Ice cream in the booth outside the lake cafe. The young boy who served us was so friendly and polite and the ice cream delicious!

Lovely location near the lakes in this great park a couple of miles from the centre of Peterborough. A bit pricey for a cafe, but cake was nice, both the lemon drizzle, and the bread pudding.

Nice quality cakes and snacks, and drinks. Toasties are super. Hot drinks in winter, cold drinks or ice cream in summer are a must.
