The Wandering Kitchen at Wet ‘n’ Wild is our café on the lake near Wallingford in Oxfordshire. When we first visited the location at Queenford Lakes we knew instantly that this is where we should be. Although we like wandering we also knew that the lake satisfied our need for fun and adventure. There are two other businesses that share the site with us: Oxford Wet n Wild aqua park and Oxford Wakeboard and Ski club.  They are both so much fun for all and it just felt like something that we wanted to be involved with.

Our indoor seating has now re-opened, but with with reduced capacity. Due to COVID-19 we ask customers to sanitise their hands before entering the café, check in on the NHS COVID-19 app, wear a face covering and follow the one-way system and observe the floor markings. We also have covered outdoor seating for anyone feeling more comfortable outside. Download the café menu here.

From Thursday 22nd October, we will be offering take away on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 5pm – 9pm. Call us on 01865 343568 to order. Download the menu here.
