Whittingtons Tea Barge

“It’s always been a dream of mine…”

Cooking has always been a passion for Andrew and he has long held a desire to open his own establishment.

“I have always wanted to get back into catering and so when the opportunity arose I grabbed it with both hands!  For me a tea room is quintessentially  British, so combining this with home made cakes and scones etc, breakfasts and  light lunches in a unique setting had a huge appeal.  Whittington’s is about offering good food, excellent tea and coffee in a family friendly environment on the Thames.”

Andrew is a descendent of the original Dick Whittington. His grandfather was Richard  Whittington, who was related to the original Dick Whittington. So the name was born – and the Whittington’s logo even includes Dick’s cat in its design.
