Takeaway options when renting our Barges in Suffolk

Kenneth Grahame, the author of children’s classic The Wind in the Willows, once famously remarked that “there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats”. Far be it from us to challenge an icon of English literature, but at Woodfarm Barges, we would like to humbly submit that “there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats with some nice food”.

To make our case for this revision as best as we can, we’ve gathered together a selection of takeaway options to enjoy when staying on board one of our Barges for rent in Suffolk.

Royal Bengal

Celebrating its fortieth birthday this year, the Royal Bengal in Woodbridge is a family-owned Indian restaurant serving up signature Goan and Bangladeshi dishes. In addition to all of the popular Indian favourites, you’ll also find a range of specialities in the menu that are all created using only the freshest ingredients and finest produce. 

The Golden Key

Experts in the world of takeaways, the Golden Key in Snape offers not only your standard takeaway fare but also an impressive “pub to plate” service that brings you a pub dinner directly to your Barge. For the latter option it’s important to provide at least two days’ notice in order for the chefs to plan and prepare your meal for the evening that you wish to enjoy it. Really widening the scope of what’s possible when choosing a takeaway, the Golden Key allows you to tuck into beef and red wine stew, slow-cooked lamb, and a range of vegetarian and vegan options when taking a holiday on board our Barges. 

Take away food


Earsham Street Deli

For a ‘Takeaway’ with a difference, why not pick up everything you need for a great British Picnic? Who says it has to be out on a blanket in the summer when you could enjoy it aboard your Barge in the evening too? Coming in Spring 2022, we’re just as excited as our guests at the prospect of this deli opening up!

Suitably convinced that we might be on to something by suggesting that the author of a children’s classic might not be as informed as our resident blog writers? You may well have to take a look at all of our Barges for rent in Suffolk to put the matter to bed.
