    I will always love this part of Oxford. Many happy memories and so much on offer. Food. Drinks. Punts. Views. Walks and a little bit of the good life every time you visit.

    Great views of punting and ducks from the terrace, and delightful food and service. Sophisticated but laid back riverside restaurant.

    The Wind in the Willows & Ratty & Mole immediately sprung to mind when myfriendslike visited Cherwell Boathouse. The restaurant has a seasonal menu, with warming dishes perfect for these wintery days!

    Do use your pole as a rudder after a stroke! It makes it so much easier; also if the pole gets stuck, let go!!

    If you get the pole stuck in the mud then just twist it first before pulling it up.
