Walking the Leeds/Liverpool Canal towpath in heavy rain. We came off at Rishton for a hot drink. The owner took us straight to the room downstairs where there was a log fire. We had a sausage sandwich and mug of tea. Good food and amazing value! The owners made us so very welcome, telling us that we could have come in straight from the towpath. He even came to the door with us as we left and wished us well for the rest of our journey. Just before Bridge 108A - not to be missed. Menu was varied too with plenty of more substantial dishes available.

We used this café as our turnaround point when walking from Church to Rishton and back. What a great little place. The part we were in was downstairs right on the towpath which at first glance looks a bit like an outhouse. They have a really good menu; we were there for breakfast and both of us had a bacon and egg butty and a cup of coffee - total price £6.40 and tasted delicious. Friendly staff and dog friendly.

Highly recommended.

Situated in a lovely setting on the canal in Rishton the cafe has an open fire downstairs which is lovely and warm in winter, during the summer you can choose to sit outside - it's a real suntrap. The food is all homemade and they do some great specials - italian, chinese, etc. They are currently renovating the upstairs area so don't be fooled into thinking the cafe is closed - you just need to enter via the canal entrance!

Nice little menu. Mum really enjoyed it. Food was nice. Wanted to order more than one thing which means I'll definitely return.

Great setting at the side of the canal in Rishton. Limited menu but supplemented with daily specials. All food is made to order so service can be a little slow when busy but this is a chill out place anyway. Cheap prices and good ambience. Recommended.
