Lunch: There is plenty of choice in Cookham. A few options: The Kings Arms (tel 01628 530 667) in the High Street, varied food menu offering good value. The Ferry (tel 01628 525 123), has a patio overlooking the river. Bel and the Dragon (tel 01628 521 263), pub-restaurant in a 15th century building, also on the High Street.

Tea: Maidenhead town has plenty of options, but if you would like to stop somewhere along the River Thames just before the town there are a couple of places: the up-market terrace bar at Boulter’s Lock (tel 01628 621 291) serves cream teas, while further along is Jenners Café (tel 01628 621 721) in the Riverside Gardens.
