Welcome To Dedham Boathouse

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.

'Don't forget our Sister!! The Kitchen at Thorpeness is our other restaurant, serving delicious lunches and homemade cakes throughout the year! For more information visit our website www.thekitchenthorpeness.co.uk
