When you have little ones, dining out can be a rather hairy experience – especially if the restaurant isn’t well set up to cater for children.

At the Blue River Cafe we are used to welcoming many families due to our proximity to local attractions such as Thorpe Park, Windsor Castle and LEGOLAND Windsor.  Customers frequently break their journey home either with a hearty meal or an overnight stay with us, meaning that they can enjoy a wonderful day trip with no time constrictions.

Serving Food All Day

We are conscious that traditional service times for Maidenhead restaurants often fall outside of a family’s unpredictable itinerary. Because of this we ensure that food is served throughout the day meaning that breakfast, lunch or dinner can be enjoyed at a time that suits you.

Our opening times are:

Monday to Friday: 7am to midnight (food served until 9.45pm)
Saturday: 8am to midnight (food served until 9.45pm)
Sunday: 8am to 10.30pm (food served until 9.30pm)

Join us for anything from a quick drink and sharing platter to a three course lunch or dinner! We will welcome the whole family and ensure that you are comfortably seated in our stunning riverside restaurant.

Our Classics Menu

Those with fussy appetites will be delighted to discover our new Classics menu!

This features a huge range of dishes, from delicious sharing platters to juicy steaks and a variety of “classic dishes” such as:

Beer battered fish & chips – catch of the day in a beer batter with mushy peas, chips & tartar sauce
Homemade beef & ale pie – buttered mash, seasonal vegetables & a jug of gravy
Hunters chicken – chicken breast, cheese & bacon in sweet BBQ sauce
Sausage & mash – 3 cumberland sausages, buttered mash & onion gravy
Braised beef cheek – creamy mash, glazed carrots, dumplings & gravy
Steamed mussels – with crusty bread
Curry of the day – served with rice & naan bread
Baked sea bream – with buttered new potatoes & seasonal vegetables
Pork chop – with red cabbage, roasted new potatoes & glazed apple
Butternut squash risotto (v) – pickled mushrooms & beetroot crisps
Ham, egg & chips – hand sliced gammon with 2 eggs & chips

If time is of the essence then we also offer lighter bites such as sandwiches, jacket potatoes and the ever popular Philly cheesesteak!

Children’s Menu

Perhaps one of the most “family friendly” things about the Blue River Cafe is the fact that KIDS EAT FREE when accompanied by an adult ordering a main course. This has proved to be an incredibly popular offer and certainly takes the stress out of unfinished plates!

Little ones can choose from a variety of options for their starter including rainbow veggie dipsticks while main courses can be selected in a “Pick N Mix” format so that children can customise their own plate with personal favourites! View our kids menu here to see the full range of options.

Our free WiFi can always be called upon to keep little ones happy with a film and we offer complimentary colouring sheets too.

If you would like to treat the whole family to a meal at the Blue River Cafe then book your table now or call us on 01628 674057.
