A Brew with a View
The boathouse finally opened on 1st December, 2017 - just twelve months after we were fortunate enough to be awarded a 40% grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development to help build it. The boathouse was initially designed to provide toilets, showers and disabled faciltiies for boaters, however, once it began to take shape, it became abundantly clear that it would be criminal not to open it up as a cafe for people out and about enjoying the River Nene and surrounding Nene Valley.
Whatever the weather or whatever the time of day it is, there is always something to sit back and admire, from watching the fluffy white clouds dance above beautiful Whiston church high up on the hill in the distance, or simply watching the narrowboats moving around the marina.
Managed by Carrie Hewitt a former star baker from Northampton College, the boathouse is currently open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10am - 4pm and on Sundays from 10am - 2.30pm. Assisted by Wendy Wenham, who up until recently ran her own coffee shop in Northampton, the duo really do make everything with love and offer a fabulous range of teas and coffees as well as superb freshly prepared food and snacks.
