Tingdene Marina’s Best Bites

Discover some of the best cuisine served on the waterfront across our Tingdene marinas.

We know more than anyone the importance of good food and refreshing drinks after a long day on the water, and what’s more convenient than stopping for something while you are on the marina! Discover our impressive range of eateries at all ten of our UK marinas and add them to your hit list this summer.

Broadlands Marina

Moss & Co.

The “perfect place to watch the sunset”, new tenant Moss and Co. is the perfect pub and restaurant for a spot of breakfast and a decent cup of coffee, as well as great British pub classics and the nation’s beloved roast dinner. The family pub is situated in the Broadlands Park & Marina where berth holders, visitors and passers-by can all enjoy an impromptu bite to eat and a cold drink in the sun while admiring the stunning views across Oulton Broad. There really isn’t anywhere we’d rather be on a summer’s day!

Brundall Bay Marina

East Hills Café

Whether a quick pit-stop, or a much-needed rest after a long day navigating the Broads, East Hills Bistro does it all. A café by day and a seafood restaurant by night, they have you covered for all things delicious no matter the time of day. Nestle into a comfortable seat under a heated terrace and enjoy dining alfresco, no matter the weather. Watch passers-by on a morning stroll or the sun set over Brundall Bay Marina by night while you enjoy a delicious meal from the reasonably priced menu of Great British favourites and seafood specialities. A definite crowd pleaser you will return to again and again.

Hartford Marina

Hartford Mill

A real winner for all ages, the Hartford Mill Pub & Carvery sits proudly over-looking the River Great Ouse on Hartford Marina. A classic, friendly pub, with great food and well-stocked bar means you can spend the afternoon relaxing with everything you could need for the perfect family meal, and most importantly, not having to do the washing up after! Not only do they serve a carvery fresh every single day, but there’s also an award-winning soft play and activity centre for the little ones to burn some energy and work up an appetite. For sunnier days, there is a large terrace outside with plenty of seating for you to soak up the rays on, with a book and drink in hand. Sounds perfect!

Pyrford Marina

The Anchor

Nestled on the banks of the Wey Navigation and just a couple of minutes’ walk from Pyrford Marina, The Anchor pub invitingly stands among its perfect surroundings of a running canal at its feet and nothing but greenery surrounding you. Take in the comings and goings of canal life, while you catch up with friends, relish in family time or simply enjoy a quiet drink with the dog. Their carefully crafted food menus and drinks from around the world means there is something for every taste bud, and plenty of opportunities to try something new. This country pub has a unique charm that anyone can see themselves indulging in for summers to come.

Walton Marina

Boathouse Café

A modern-rustic coffee shop with beautiful views of the River Thames, the Boathouse Café serves the finest quality produce. Speciality coffee, hot and cold food, and delicious handmade cakes and treats, for humans and dogs, are all among the popular lunchtime orders. Nestled right in the heart of Walton on the River Thames overlooking Walton Marina, they are firm favourites with locals and visitors alike for the delicious breakfasts and lunches that are perfect for keeping boaters going on their journey, or setting them up before a day on the water. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a slice of cakes before you leave – you won’t regret it!

Racecourse Marina Windsor


GOGOS Waterfront Restaurant is a firm favourite among berth holders. The family-run restaurant serves fresh South African flair and flavours, complete with breath-taking views of Racecourse Marina Windsor and Windsor Racecourse. It is as amazing as it sounds! The outside decks are the perfect place to while away a sunny afternoon, enjoying your surroundings with one of the Shebeen bar’s beverages, perhaps a specially hand-picked wine, tasty gin or a speciality beer. The cocktail menu is spectacular too, with the menu transforming regularly by their expert mixologists. If you are celebrating something special, GOGOS also take larger group bookings in the Shebeen Bar with your own party menu. Something to look forward to this summer. A truly unique experience you won’t forget any time soon!

Stourport Marina

The Quayside

The Quayside specialises in serving fresh seafood dishes in a welcoming atmosphere, overlooking Stourport Marina. Relax in the outdoor seating area while enjoying a meal al fresco and see for yourself why the restaurant has become popular with locals and visitors alike. Their menu changes regularly, so you can try a new special every time you visit or find your favourite on their core menu. You may find it difficult to choose from the impressive cocktail menu, and the wine list is just as exciting.

Thames and Kennet Marina

The Dock

Situated at the heart of the Thames & Kennet Marina, The Dock is the ideal spot to eat, drink and relax. Whether it’s morning coffee & breakfast, watching the sun set over the river with a glass of wine or dancing the night away at one of their many exciting events, everyone is invited! Events at The Dock range from quiz evenings to open mic nights, and even silent discos! With a summer packed full of dates for the diary, be sure to make the most of your summer nights by the Thames.

Waveney Marina

The Waveney Inn

Nestled right on the edge of the Norfolk and Suffolk marshes in the heart of the Broads, popular family pub The Waveney Inn and its huge outdoor decking overlooks picturesque views of Waveney Marina. The ideal way to watch the world go by before, during or after a day out on the water. Known as ‘The Southern Broads’ Premiere Waterside Pub’, The Waveney Inn serves a mouth-watering menu of home cooked food using the best quality local ingredients, all sourced from local family-run businesses. Accessible by river, road or on foot, this is the perfect place to include in your day discovering the Broads.

The Waveney Inn is over 135 years old. In the early 20th century the building was not only a hotel and
wherry trading staithe, but a zoo as well! From 1904 – 1914, Frank Rice’s Zoological Gardens was a famous local attraction, featuring bears, monkeys and a ‘sacred white camel’ amongst its menagerie.

While the good weather is still with us, be sure to try out any of our magnificent eateries if you are a berth holder, a local, visiting the area, or simply looking for some nice food!

We look forward to seeing you soon.
