Came in for lunch on a quiet day. Nice choice of seating arrangements . . . cosy cubicles, party table (for large group), window tables, quiet room in back. Friendly, attentive, experienced service from the owner. Everything on the menu looked good . . . we shared the Green Grow Harmony board for starters. Babaganoush was unorthodox but very tasty,...

We have been to The Raft for lunch three times now and always find the staff really friendly and welcoming. The food is lovely and fresh and just a little bit 'different' from the normally cafe food on offer. It is a great place to relax, especially for a morning or afternoon coffee as they have some lovely comfy chairs.

not showy but this place has a great relaxed style and you always feel very welcome. Awesome pizzas ( I do not like pizzas normally) and numerous other dishes with a difference. Try the meaty pan or the fishy pan. Good atmosphere and a great little outdoors space where our dachshund is made welcome. We love places like this where... More

We stayed at the Beach House Hotel which is a 5 minute walk to The Raft. The food, atmosphere, service were excellent. It was a real delight and not a million miles away from what we would experience in Shoreditch. Well done the Raft.

The raft tempted us inside with its shabby chic decor and inviting feel from the street. Immediately we were welcomed by a super friendly and smiley chap who told us to sit wherever we would like, so obviously we chose the comfy looking mismatched armchairs by the decorative log burner with fairy lights inside! We had a look at the... More

Interesting place with good interaction. We had the fishy pan which was a nice combination of haddock, cod cheeks, salmon, a prawn and mussels in a tasty sauce. It was pretty good, but the absence of finger bowls was a basic error for this type of dish. You might go to this restaurant for its slightly quirky (for Milford) decor... More
