The Cheese Barge

All aboard The Cheese Barge – 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 our infamous Westcombe Curried Cheese Curds.
Expect cheese plates with innovative pairings and small producer wines.


*The Terrace is closed from Oct – Mar!

How To Find Us



Paddington Basin
Sheldon Square
W2 6DL

Phone: 07862 001418



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 on the Elizabeth Line, exit to the left of the platform, walk straight ahead & turn right onto Bishop’s Bridge Road.
Walk to the bridge and you’ll see some stairs to the right. Walk down the stairs onto the towpath and turn left, you’ll see us up ahead.


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!
