The Cafe on the Barge is now our local cafe. It's a lovely experience to sit out on deck and enjoy the beautiful views over the River Torridge. We haven't had a meal there yet, but if the food is as good as the coffee and tea it is something to look forward to.
Excellent value for money, and very friendly service.

We went to the Cafe on the Barge for coffee this morning. Coffee was delicious, children enjoyed milkshakes, all with complimentary biscuits. It is very basic but good value for money and a unique position and experience. Another customer was eating a cooked breakfast which smelt very good.

We ordered some drinks and tuna mayo rolls for our lunch. We sat outside on the deck of the barge, with fabulous views across the river. The rolls were very big and came with plenty of salad and crisps. The staff were friendly and the location was perfect. We considered it to be very good value for money, and would certianly go there again.

Visited a few days ago, was a lovely little place to stop off for a cuppa.

It is a large boat situated at the end of the car park on Bideford Quay by the park. There are plenty of sign posts to guid you there (hand written signs)

You can choose to sit inside or outside, it was a lovely sunny day but a little breezy so sat inside.

The owners are lovely and make you feel welcomed.

Was a little expensive, for two coffees and a hit chocolate it came to around £6.50, but you get a biscuit with it which was a nice touch.

I can't comment in the food because we only had drinks.

Ideal for anyone on a bike ride or out for a walk.
