Our Story

We are a family owned and run Café/Restaurant, hidden amidst a dazzling secret riverside location in Greenwich, South East London.

A charming husband and wife tale of a shared dream to be the heart of a local community, serving fresh wholesome, good quality food to be proud of. We opened our doors just a few months before Covid: “Don’t Go to Pubs and Restaurants, Says U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 16th of March 2020.

The battle began..

Unbeknown to us our local community had created a Crowdfund to help keep us open, we was and will forever be moved by the support, this gave us all the zeal we needed to fight for our dream…

The secret ingredient is always Love!
