Unfortunately this is not a cafe anymore but an up market sleeping barge belonging to the Anchor Hotel its very plush and something different and quirky.

What a fantastic barge experience. Cabins are beautifully furnished and very statesmen like. We ate dinner in the hotel and the food was lovely. Great experience all round.

Boat is currently being renovated by owners of Anchor hotel. In fullness of time it should provide bedroom accommodation run by Anchor hotel.
