More Detail

The cafe offers a wide range of amenities to local residents and visitors. Located at the Canal Basin, the cafe is easily accessible by public transport.

This is one of the most beautiful locations in the city centre to relax and enjoy some refreshment. The cafe offers bean to cup coffees, a range of herbal teas, hot chocolate and cold drinks. As well as drinks, we offer light refreshments, such as sandwiches, toasted tea cakes, scrumptious cakes, ice creams and confectionery. Much of our produce is sourced from local companies, including Caroline’s Dairy, Auntie Val’s preserves and honey from Fishbourne Apiaries. There is ample indoor and outdoor seating, both of which offer outstanding views of the activities in the Basin.

The cafe is manned by volunteers who are always happy to provide information on the Canal Trust and its activities.

Our booking team will be delighted to assist you in choosing a trip or cruise. You can also hire a rowing boat from the team and buy your licence for a paddleboard, canoe or for fishing. There are also souvenirs and second hand books available to buy.

As a number of our visitors may have mobility issues, we are pleased to offer a lift to the upstairs seating area and toilet facilities which offer baby changing and also access by wheelchair users.

Our doggie friends are welcome and free biscuits and water are provided for them. Please ask our volunteers about access to the cafe and seating options.

Adjacent to the cafe is the Heritage Centre. This is located in a 19th century old stable which has been refurbished to provide information about the canal and its history. Canal users and local schools appreciate the opportunity to learn more about the canal and view artefacts recovered during excavation works.
