An artisan bakery, cafe and sandwich shop in the Cotswolds are offering an extended food and drink experience for customers thanks to brand new ownership.

Since taking on the business together Alex Clavel and Narda Franco are delighted to offer a nighttime economy for Bakery on the Water by launching River Shack, a small extension literally right next to the fast flowing River Windrush.

The Bourton-on-the-Water venue can be described as a unique mix offering later evening relaxation in a popular Cotswold village, going beyond the daily cafe you can find serving coffee, cakes, bread and so much more.

Speaking together, Alex and Narda say River Shack is perfect for the community because "when Bourton becomes quiet we are a charming village. This is something we felt was needed here and we've developed this as an extension of the bakery."

Offering platters, drinks and all local produce, they add that the menu is "very simple" with sharing boards and refreshing cocktails for summer. "We hope that this is something people can enjoy and of course lots of tourists will come in the morning, so we hope this can be an extra appetiser for villagers."

River Shack is currently offered to customers on Friday and Saturday evenings only. You can find them here on Instagram.
