*The Wandering Kitchen Cafe at the lake remains open over the winter, our general opening times are 9am – 4pm Monday – Friday,
9am – 5pm Saturday
and 8:30am – 5pm Sunday*

The Wandering Kitchen at the Lake is our café 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.

Please visit the menus page to find out more about what food we will be serving.

*Please note that we use all 14 allergens in our kitchen and front of house and therefore we can not guarantee that any of the food and drink we make is allergen free and therefore not suitable for severe allergies*
