Café
“Ideally situated near to the marina, (just across the road). In a perfect location next to the flight of locks at Muirtown, the cafe is renowned for excellent coffee and tea and breakfast options. Eat in or takeaway back to 'Highwayman' and enjoy dining on the back deck. Adrian particularly loves the bacon & egg rolls - but there are also healthier options!”
