Fairfield Park Boathouse

Fairfield Park Boathouse is an iconic location where you can enjoy delicious meals and Devonshire Teas whilst revelling in the riverside atmosphere amongst the gum trees and the friendly ducks. We went there for a pre-wedding photoshoot for a gorgeous couple who will be tying the knot under our appreciative lenses next April. There was no way we were going to miss the opportunity to have some yummy tucker while on location. In fact… we went twice. Breakfast first – next the photoshoot – then back for scones and a spot of tea!

Ben ordered the (all-day!) Boatman’s Breakfast which consisted of fried eggs, gourmet beef sausage, bacon, meadow mushrooms and yummy tomato relish on a bit of toast. We both remarked that it was a really good size portion. Too often cooked breakfasts are eeeennnorrrmous and leave one feeling bloated and unable to eat much until breakfast the next day! This one was delicious and filling without being super-sized. Just right.

I ordered the Banana Walnut Bread which is made in-house and served with whipped butter. It was perfect.

After the photoshoot we went back for the Devonshire Tea, but forgot to take any photos until we’d started demolishing it… no regrets!
