“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Serves amazing sandwiches and coffees and the homemade cakes are delicious. Made to feel welcome and the boat is so clean and inviting. Definitely worth a visit. We will be returning and would recommend to others too :)

“A brilliant local asset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

my family and I live close by to the Coffee Boat that is moored at Bramwith lock.

Mick and Donna are a lovely couple and always make you feel welcome.

The drinks are great together with scrumptious cakes.

The new larger boat has just opened and the range is expanding.

A brilliant local attraction that does not get the support from the authorities it deserves - hang you heads in shame Doncaster Council!!

To sum up:

Brilliant people.
Brilliant food and drink.
Beautiful location.

Mark, Elaine, Charlotte and baby Jessica.

“lovely place, amazing cake, perfect stop off for cyclists”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

Lovely cafe boat on canal, sells hot and cold drinks, alcohol, sandwiches, toasties etc. Perfect location if you're out cycling or walking, but accessible by car also. Went today with my son whilst cycling, we were made very welcome and had lovely sandwiches. I think it used to only open weekends but they open Wednesday to Sunday now so give it a try!

“Coffee worth travelling for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Superior coffee every time at this delightful canal side cafe, so good in fact that I often specially construct my Sunday morning cycle routes to pass this way. Value is excellent for some of the best coffee and cake around, and the welcome has never been anything but gracious - I have always been made to feel comfortable.
I did notice one negative review curiously at odds with all the others, but cannot identify with any of the somewhat churlish comments made. On my every visit, not only have the hosts been warm and welcoming, but I have met and chatted with others, dog walkers, ramblers and fellow cyclists thoroughly enjoying their visit, many of them regulars, like me.
Just a shame it is only open on weekends.
Bravo!
