Coombe Cellars

The Coombe Cellars is incredibly popular amongst locals as it offers one of the most novel methods of transport - Paddle boarding up the river! Wait for an hour or so before high tide, you can simply glide up to The Coombe Cellars for a bite to eat and a cold pint. It is important to know what you’re doing on the water! If paddleboarding isn’t for you, The Coombe Cellars is still a phenomenal place to eat with views upriver and over the Moors.
