Cherwell Boathouse

50 Bardwell Road Oxford OX2 6ST

The Cherwell Boathouse is one of those ‘best kept secrets’ type places, off the beaten track. It’s where the locals go to hire a punt – well away from the tourist hot spots – and there’s great food that you can either consume inside or on the terrace overlooking the river. A favourite itinerary is to get a punt here, speed north (upstream) to the Vicky Arms, have lunch, and come back down here for a quick Pimms before home.
