A family-friendly cafe to linger and enjoy...
A tranquil location where we serve freshly cooked fine food most days of the week. Whether you come here just for the food, or as part of a longer walk, cycle ride or excursion on the river, we promise you a warm welcome!
By the Great Ouse in historic Willington
Our riverbank location offers fine views and we're only a short walk from the National Trust Dovecote and Stables at Willington
Drive, Cycle, Boat or Walk
We're located on the Willington Riverside Walk, specifically designed for leisure cycling and walking. Alternatively you can arrive by boat, or hire one of self-drive family friendly boats for an excursion on the river.
Keep the kids (of all ages) occupied...
We have a bouncy castle in the summer months and our extensive grounds house Ollie, our rescued Great Owl and Eric and Ernie, our chipmunks. You can also hire bikes of all sizes and trailers to take the family for a leisurely ride along the river or the old railway track towards Sandy.
Or come and meet the Artful Dodger
Our wide beam barge is available for regular or chartered excursions along the River Great Ouse. Enjoy the scenery or take a packed lunch or book a fully catered dining cruise - it's up to you!
