About The Wharf House

Our past, present and future

The Wharf House stands on the site of an old extended lock keeper’s cottage on the banks of the River Severn, which had fallen into serious disrepair and so was demolished and rebuilt to be five times larger – specifically with the purpose of providing guests with a restaurant and accommodation. It was completed in December 2002 and is owned and run by the Herefordshire & Gloucestershire Canal Trust, a charity which works to rebuild the 34 miles of historic canal between Gloucester and Hereford.

With a passionate team and three superb chefs at its helm, recent years have seen The Wharf House grow to one of Gloucester’s finest restaurants, affirmed by its success in achieving a 2 AA rosette award.

Looking to the future we hope the Wharf House will maintain its rosette reputation, gain a third rossette award before 2020 and become even more well known for a fantastic dining experience.

Our food is continually improving whilst remaining seasonal and on-trend, in the hope all customers will enjoy their visit and return to dine with us again.

Our awards include:

  • 2 AA Awarded Rosette Restaurant
  • AA 4 Gold Star Accommodation
  • Green Tourism Business Scheme (Silver)
  • Campaign To Protect Rural England (CPRE) Award
