“Coffee worth travelling for”
Review of The Coffee Boat - CLOSED

The Coffee Boat
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Superior coffee every time at this delightful canal side cafe, so good in fact that I often specially construct my Sunday morning cycle routes to pass this way. Value is excellent for some of the best coffee and cake around, and the welcome has never been anything but gracious - I have always been made to feel comfortable.
I did notice one negative review curiously at odds with all the others, but cannot identify with any of the somewhat churlish comments made. On my every visit, not only have the hosts been warm and welcoming, but I have met and chatted with others, dog walkers, ramblers and fellow cyclists thoroughly enjoying their visit, many of them regulars, like me.
Just a shame it is only open on weekends.
Bravo!

Lovely spot to stop and relax while walking or biking. Great coffee and fablous cakes in a lovely location. Worth a trip out for a treat.

Found this delightful narrow boat at Kirk Bramwith about six weeks after it had opened in 2012. A warm welcome and excellent choice of tea, coffee, homemade cakes etc. Nicely served with an opportunity to sit in the actual narrow boat or enjoy the outdoor seating on the canal side. Had hoped to go back more often last year but unfortunately couldn't. Dropped by last Saturday shortly after closing time and notwithstanding hospitality extended with a warm welcome. Tea and cake as excellent as before! Homemade fayre in the best "old fashioned" British tradition!

I have visited the Coffee Boat many times since it opened, the wife and I being its first ever customers! It is a lOvely stop, and we have called in with friends many times, either as a break on a cycle ride, or on a walk along the canal! Excellent coffee, good selection of cakes, and excellent hospitality! Plans are afoot for a night time restaurant too, so watch this space in the New Year!!
