The Cheese Barge

The Cheese Barge is our newest restaurant – a 96ft double decker vessel moored on The Regent’s Canal.

Our Main Dining Room plays host to a seasonal cheese-focused menu,
from a whole half kilo Baked Baron to Slow Braised Beef Shin Spelt Risotto, with fresh Goats’ Curd.
Expect cheese plates with innovative pairings and small producer wines.

Or join us between 3 – 5.30pm for Cheeseboards, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches & snacks.
*The Terrace is closed from Nov – Mar!

Directions

 

Find us on the canal at Paddington Central, next door to London Shell Co.

 

Paddington is the nearest station.

 

If you’re coming on the Hammersmith & City, District or Circle Line, exit the station and turn left – you’ll see us just along the towpath.

 

If you’re coming via the Bakerloo Line, or national rail, you’ll need to come through Paddington Station. Walk straight down Platform 8, up the ramp at the end and follow it round to the right. At the end, turn left, head past Costa and up the stairs to your right. Turn left at the top of the stairs and you’ll see us straight ahead!
