Dedham Boathouse Restaurant

Hire a rowing boat or have an ice cream on the river Stour
United Kingdom

For many years dating back to the nineteen hundreds, Dedham has been known as the place to hire a Rowing Boat. We have carried on that tradition and have 26 Clinker built Rowing Boats all for hire from 30 minutes to an hour or more for a leisurely row along the river Stour.

Dedham Boathouse is known to many locals and visitors as the place to hire a rowing boat or enjoy an ice cream down by the river, but there have been quite a few changes since Cameron & Claire Marshall bought the business in March 2002.

In September 2002 after completing the first ‘season’ in Dedham, Cameron & Claire closed the Café and made the transformation from Café to Restaurant.

A bar was built, a complete new kitchen added, as was gas central heating.
New fixtures and fittings completed the final style of modern and contemporary yet warm and inviting.

Cameron and his kitchen brigade produce a fusion of style and flavours with items on the menu changing every 6-8 weeks, while Claire and her ‘front of house’ team endeavour to serve good food & drink with efficient friendly service.

All this, in tranquil surroundings on the River Stour.
