“Delicious food and nice setting”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Great coffees and a nice menu have had a great experience with a range of their food both cabinet and menu.
Always warm, and you can sit right next to the river even on a cold day for a nice view.

Will return again and again

Wonderful place for a coffee and a bite to eat. Right by the river. Read the notice on the cats stall, he thinks he owns the place! Bless him!

“Graet cakes”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

WEvisited the Boatshed cafe on a Sunday afternoon. It was great to sit on the verandah watching the people boating on the river. The cakes were delicious and introduced us to varities we don't have in the UK. Definitely worth a visit.

“Good food with a river view.”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 via mobile

We had an excellent afternoon at the cafe. My wife had the mushroom and bacon soup, and I had the chicken ceasar salad, both of which were excellent. Only a modest wine selection, but those that were offered were quite good. The coffee selections were also well prepared. No dessert this time, but the overall ambience and service demands a return tr
