Relax with family and friends in our riverside clubhouse

The Boat Shed

The Boat Shed can be found on the picturesque shoreline of the Hardwick Parks Watersports and Swimming Lake. This on-site entertainment hub is a great place to stop in to for a tasty lunch or to relax with a cold beer after a long day exploring the Oxfordshire countryside.

The fully stocked bar of the Boat Shed has everything you need for a quiet night watching the sunset or for a night out to remember with your friends at a pub quiz! As well as soft-drinks, beers and wines our experienced bar staff are also on hand to mix any one of the tasty cocktails on our drinks menu.

The Boat Shed also features our on-site kitchen and restaurant where you can tuck into some pub grub favourites.

Please note: Due to our  kitchen size, we can accommodate group bookings of 8 people max.

Opening times for the week ahead are posted on our Facebook page.
