The River Café is a licensed cafe-bar-restaurant located across the boatyard with the Wye Valley Canoe Centre next door. It is a relaxed and informal space with tables on the decking overlooking the River Wye.
We are open from 8.30am and people gather here for an coffee, a pastry or a bacon sandwich before going out on the river. The outdoor mob are welcome and we are ideally situated for those doing the Wye Valley Walk and we are on the Sustran cycle network (route 8 and 42) for those on two wheels. Our customer base is probably more varied than anywhere else I can think of! We are not just a hot chocolate and a muffin sort of a place. AA Gill the infamous food critic awarded us 4 stars and during the Hay Literature Festival we welcome many well known faces to eat, to relax and enjoy fresh food cooked daily by our wonderful kitchen crew. You can come in a suit or a swimsuit, a pirate outfit or shorts and flip flops. The whole ethos of the cafe is that it should never feel pretentious but should welcome everyone!
Free Wi-Fi is available at The River Café.
Relax and enjoy a glass of wine or a local ale on the decking. There really is no better way to spend the day!
Canoeing is not compulsory but we have canoes, kayaks and double kayaks if you want to take to the water. We have a great range of mountain bikes if cycling is more your thing. You can go off with your own group or we can organise guides for you.
