Why we love it

Sittin' on the Mud-Dock of the bay (well, floating harbour), this is the perfect place to be wastin' time, watching the ships roll in. In the morning sun with a coffee, or when indulging in something a tad more wholesome when the evening comes, the quality of the food and the gorgeous views from the terrace of this converted boat warehouse make any visit here thoroughly memorable.

The famous Mud Dock Cycleworks is on the ground floor, so the café upstairs has steadily evolved into something of a Mecca (or a Ventoux?) for discerning foodies and cyclists alike. Vintage road bikes hang between the café's weathered metal ceiling struts and classic stage race memorabilia adorns age-old wooden walls, whilst ever-changing seasonal breakfast, lunch and dinner specials are scribbled on blackboards for your delectation. Floor-to-ceiling windows drench light throughout the Mud Dock’s interior (one of them handily backlighting a temptingly fine array of spirits) – it’s a thoroughly enjoyable sort of space; warm in an industrial sort of way, and always conversational. For hearty breakfasts, light & delicious lunches and fresh yet simple evening dishes, roll over to the Mud Dock – it's wheely good.

Even though the venue was pretty rammed when we arrived, we were seated straight away and the food cane reasonably quickly. The lamb burger was delicious, and they had a pretty decent drinks selection.

Love the vibe in Mud Dock - the penny farthing hanging from the ceiling is a particular highlight. The rest of the decor is great too and in the summer the terrace is perfect.
