Returned again, I am never disappointed. A great place to have a good coffee served with hot milk and watch the world go by. Nice to see the canal boats go by as you sit in the sun having a nice drink.

Start your night with a drink in Harkers, about 20 yds up along the canal, and then retire to the more relaxed atmosphere of the Artichoke. Good food and drink in an atmospheric building where you can talk and hear yourself!!!

Contempory cafe, bar and bistro. From Sunday Roast to coffee, tea and toast, cocktails to real ales. Relaxed and friendly service combined with quality food and drinks. A great range of homemade cakes, real ale from Cheshire breweries, continental lager and artisan beers, modern bistro dining using the finest local suppliers and a wine and cocktail list second to none.
