The Wharf House in Gloucester needs little introduction, having earned itself an excellent reputation for serving refined and modern British cuisine, drawing upon the best of local produce.
But what you may not know is that the restaurant also serves as a hub for the Herefordshire and Gloucestershire Canal Trust – working to restore 34 miles of canal and locks which will once again link Hereford with Ledbury, Dymock, Newent and the rest of the inland waterway system at Gloucester – with all profits from The Wharf House going to the trust.
The restaurant’s adjoining visitor centre serves as a useful mine of information on the local canals, exploring 750 years of the Leadon Valley from the Roman vineyards to the English Civil War, as well as promoting the work of local artists and crafts people.
