Hello, WE ARE 3 childhood friends (BLANDY, RYAN & TOMMO)
LAST YEAR WE BOUGHT A 114 YEAR OLD DUTCH BARGE
WITH THE DREAM TO OPEN LONDON's FINEST OUTDOOR BAR & KITCHEN
WE ARE INDEPENDENT , OUR BEER IS MADE IN HACKNEY WICK
OUR KITCHEN USES LOCAL SUPPLIERS, WE BOAST THE SUNNIEST TERRACE IN LONDON
WE CAN't WAIT TO WELCOME YOU ABOARD
It all started when...
Tommo was a kid dreaming of becoming a pirate. The dream never really ended and when the opportunity to set up a business on a boat along the River Lee in Hackney Wick arose it was as close to that childhood dream as you can get. Fast forward to 2018 and childhood friends; Blandy, Ryan & Tommo have launched what is set to be the most magical eating and dining destination in London.
Our boat, De Hoop, is an historic 114 year old Dutch Tjalk, lovingly restored using reclaimed materials and sailed on an epic journey across the North Sea from Holland to our Sweetwater mooring at Hackney Wick.
Our menu reflects Ryans journey across the world as a chef aboard yachts. Our small plate dining concept offers seasonal dishes with exotic flavours, utilising where possible, local suppliers.
Blandy has created a drinks menu which showcases the best of London in our choices of beers, coffees, soft drinks and East London spirits. There is no better waterside food and drink venue in London.
Across the year we will be hosting a regular series of events in our amphitheatre.
Pop in and say hi!
