Proudly independent since 2002

The [email protected] Group, forged from the original Dedham Boathouse restaurant, established in 2002 is bigger and stronger but still an independent restaurant group with family at the heart of the business. With sites across North Essex and Suffolk, our values remain the same as the day of its inception instilled by our creators, Cameron and Claire. Great produce, locally and responsibly sourced, passionately served with informal professionalism.

An eclectic group of cafès and restaurants with each building having its own unique style and reasons to visit. This said, you can be sure of the same warm welcome from our talented teams. A quick coffee and cake with a quiet corner, a family brunch or a spot of lunch from one of our Brasserie style menus, we have a little something for everyone.

A wide selection of fresh cakes and savoury & sweet pastries are available alongside our brasserie style menu. We no longer take bookings but we have plenty of seating inside and out. Everything on the café counter from coffee to cake can also be taken away for you to enjoy whether you’re rowing or just walking alongside the beautiful river Stour.
