The Boathouse Cafe at Bawdsey Quay

Back to listings
If Freshpac were to award a cafe of the year, the Boathouse at Bawdsey Quay would most definitely be at the top of our list!

We love this unique little hideaway which is situated right at the mouth of the River Deben, a real treat found on a stretch of the Suffolk coast. This year was the sixth season for the Boathouse Café, run by Di Clouting who offers home cooked food using locally sourced ingredients. This has become a real favourite for the locals and those that travel from afar time and time again.

This is a great place to visit with the family who can play on the sandy beach, or for those a little more adventurous you will find sailing, fishing and cycling as some of the many attractions on offer.

We love the Boathouse, Di’s cooking, the friendly staff, great views and of course, one of the finest cups of coffee you’ll find in Suffolk! Be sure not to miss out!

The boathouse cafe is open from 11.00 am to 5.00 pm and throughout the month of November, is open on Fridays, Saturday and Sundays!
