Description: A licensed café/restaurant on the banks of the River Wye at Glasbury near Hay-on-Wye. We also offer accommodation and canoes/bikes for hire. We have 5 en suite rooms and a bunkhouse for groups of 14 or less. All B&B rooms come with a hearty breakfast before you hit the outdoors in a canoe, a bike, your walking shoes, a car or if you are just having a mooch around Hay. We are open for breakfast from 0830 -11.00 and then coffees and cakes until 12 when we serve lunches until 3.00. In the afternoon you can enjoy tea and cakes and supper is served from 6.00pm till 9.00pm. We are relaxed, informal and licensed. You can arrive in swimsuit or dinner jacket, we really don't mind. Great food, sourced locally where possible, and cooked with love and skill by Alex Parrett and his team in the kitchen. We are part of the Wye Valley Canoe Centre so paddle down the river and come back for lunch or a glass of local cider on the decking. We look forward to welcoming you here.

Visited here today prior to canoeing down the river Wye. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional! Nothing was too much trouble for the young ladies who served us - pleasant, well mannered and very accommodating not only to ourselves but all those around us too! Would highly recommend!

A good location next to the river in Glasbury with lots of outside seating and lovely views out over the river.

The food was good, although service was a little slow. There is a relatively small menu but all meals were very good, well cooked and flavoursome. A nice restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere.

We have been visiting the River Cafe regularly over the past three years. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The food is always excellent. We have never ever had a bad meal there and I think we have tried everything off the changing menus. It is one of our favourite places and we hope to continue visiting for many years to come. Thank you to all the friendly staff and particularly thank you to the amazing chef.

It’s about 5 years since we last came and it’s still a really great place. Top class quality food in a stunning setting. A must visit if you are in the area.
