A new but already popular place for lunch at Tottenham Hale is the cafe just inside the Walthamstow Wetlands entrance.
This is opposite The Ferry Boat inn which has long been an option for lunch.
The new cafe is located in a pumping station built in 1894 to pump water through the vast reservoirs which can now be visited free of charge. There is also a shop and you can go upstairs to look at the view.
The cafe is run by The Larder which is responsible for the very popular cafe at the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow.
Soup is £5.90 and jacket potato £6.90. You must look to cakes for the pudding choice. The coffee, Union Coffee, is good.
The Engine House cafe is open daily 9.30am–4pm.
