Tommo was a kid dreaming of becoming a pirate. The dream never really ended and when the opportunity to set up a restaurant on a boat along the River Lee in Hackney Wick arose, it was as close to that childhood dream as you could get. Fast forward to 2018 and 3 childhood friends- Blandy, Ryan & Tommo have launched what is set to be the most magical dining destination in London.
Our boat, De Hoop, is a 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 Ryan’s journey across the world as a chef aboard yachts. Our small plate dining concept offers seasonal dishes with exotic flavors, utilising where possible, local suppliers.
Blandy has created a drinks menu which showcases the best of London’s choice of beers, coffees, wine, cocktails, soft drinks and East London spirits.
Also, an incredible outdoor deck with a view of London’s skyline and the Olympic stadium. There is no better waterside food, drink and private hire venue in London. We serve bottomless brunch, lunch, dinner & Sunday roasts.
Across the year we also host a regular series of events in our amphitheater.
