The De Hoop is looking pretty good for its age. At 114 the Dutch Tjalk has lived more than a little and through the efforts of three childhood friends it’s been given a new lease of life entirely. Sailed from Amsterdam to Hackney Wick, the vessel now stands moored at Sweetwater, next to the Queen Elizabeth…
Moored on the River Lee in Hackney Wick, the historic 118 year old barge has been breathtakingly transformed from its former life as a cargo barge in Holland into a truly stunning floating bar & restaurant in East London.
Proudly awarded London’s ‘Best Rated Restaurant’ on TripAdvisor for 2019-2020, the floating dining experience is open 7 days a week.
Up to 6 guests from one household can enjoy a seasonal 4 course British set menu whilst taking in unrivalled riverside views of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Central London and a magical outdoor heated terrace.
Living up to the grandeur of the barges architecture, the restaurant dotes a rustic yet cosy and inviting decor with ambient candle lit tables, fresh wild flower arrangements and the soft glow coming from the busy galley.
They stock a variety of produce from local businesses, whilst harvesting produce weekly from their own Barge East Gardens.
Outdoor Heated Terrace
After a more casual vibe? The heated terrace offers an exclusive outdoor space, allowing guests of up to 6 from separate households to enjoy casual yet tasty street food, boozy hot chocolates and mulled wine. There's also exlusive Garden Greenhouses for those after something a little more private.
There's a variety of bookable experiences on board the barge and in the heated terrace:
