About the boat

Technically a ship, The Milk Float was built in England in 2014. By day, she's a bar & cafe with Moo Canoes available for hire (April to October). She moonlights as a splendid venue.  

Serving fresh coffee, local draft beers and our seasonal menu of hot cocktails, she's a great spot to warm your cockles on wintry walks. The top deck has flame heaters & views over Hackney Wick riviera, or cuddle up with some caramelised nuts in one of the cabin booths.

Activities

If you fancy getting closer to the water, we also offer canoe hire. You'll be shown the ropes before you set off on your own adventure - perfect for couples, families & groups.

If you're planning a celebration, we can also arrange kayaking and paddleboarding sessions for groups, just get in touch!

Navigation

The Milk Float is open Wednesday - Friday from Midday & weekends from 10am. She can be found on the canal just off White Post Lane on the edge of the Olympic Park.

The closest station is Hackney Wick (3 minutes on foot). Turning left from the station, then left onto White Post Lane, you should see The Milk Float on your right hand side as you cross over the canal. The nearest postcode is E9 5EN.
