The River Exe Cafe is a floating barge just off the water-ski lane on the River Exe. It was created back in 2011 using two flat bed barges and a shed! The base of the cafe is two mud hoppers from Stoke on Trent, which were transported by road down to Exmouth; sandblasted, painted and steel worked together to create a 1.7 km decking area on which to build the cafe. The only way to reach the café is by boat!
We have no mains water or electricity, so we use holding tanks and a generator; everything we need for the cafe has to be transported to and from the mainland by boat. We are very proud of our achievements and hope you enjoy every minute of your stay with us. Our aim was to create a venue that maximises the incredible river views that the Exe Estuary has to offer; a place for guests to sit back and soak up the atmosphere while enjoying a modern British menu using some of Devon’s finest produce.
