Thought we would give this place another go after a previous bad experience. Things haven't improved. We ordered three breakfast meals. I had toasted brioche bread with jam. The brioche was not pleasant. My large cappuccino was like warm milk. Other coffees and food were not worth the prices either. Some of the cakes in the display looked like they... More

Had the most horrible experience at this place. Came for a weekend breakfast. We were made to wait 40 mins for the food which was a mere salmon on toast and corn fritters.. how long does that even take???? When we finally asked one of the attendants, we were told that they had some server issues!!! When the food came,... More

Had lunch at the Boatshed today and it was below average. The fish was yum but way too oily and the dressing on the salad was HORRIBLE. Bland food with no imagination or love put into it and waited ages for our food to be delivered. Service was great however what's with the plastic cups? Very disappointing! I dont think... More

Had a nice meal there, not great but not average, I would say good. Generous servings, well presented, friendly staff, just a bit of a wait for the meal, given the boat shed was 30% full and it was a Sunday lunch. I'd say its still worth a visit, good view and good atmosphere for a sneaky sunday lunch

Had breakfast here and was good. We ordered the smash avocado with poached egg. Service was good. Coffee was ok, not the best. This place has a great outlook to the marina. Very relaxing.

Very pleasant and lovely cafe on the waterfront. Road bikes there and Had 2 coffees and a gigantic piece of Apple crumble. Was the best ever with real apple layered 8 cm high with crumble on top. Only complaint is we went back to get it again on Monday and they were out. So sad.

We just had a coffee at the cafe. The large coffee comes in basically a bucket that is pretty nice. Coffee itself was not bad and the scenery was fairly relaxing.

We went with a group of Adults and a few kids. We had a really relaxed time with some very good dishes. Notably the Asian salad was worth a mention on its own. The kids were given a bread basket to feed the fish in the marina and then kept them self busy in the air con kids room. So... More
