You can take your refreshments at the outside seating in a lovely setting, ideal for the casual visitor or if you are waiting for your boat trip. The peaceful surroundings offer a pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by over a cup of coffee.
A wide range of refreshments are available including hot and cold drinks, fresh sandwiches, salads, home-made cakes, confectionery, biscuits, crisps and snacks.

The HQ and shop are run by volunteers who are happy to provide any information on the Canal Trust and it's activities. They will take rowing boat bookings and same day reservations for the scheduled daily Egremont boat trips. Visitors will find a good supply of leaflets advertising a wide range of other local tourist attractions. They will also find that the shop staff are a mine of information about the history of the canal and things to see and do in the area.
