The Danish Camp is a pleasant wooden structure located directly beside the River Ouse. The building itself is nothing to write home about, but the balcony overlooking the river and the open riverside area alongside are the real attractions in the warmer months.
The food itself is fair, but the prices are rather high. The staff also have a philosophy eschewing the notion of fast food. As nice as this probably sounds to the blue rinse brigade that frequent the Camp during the week, the fact is that the service is so ridiculously slow as to make you think twice about bothering to order anything in the first place.
If a 45 minute wait for the three people in front of you to be served sounds like a good idea in your book, then do try the milkshake that's made with ice cream.
Danish Camp is a restaurant on the river, it is also on the cycle Route 51 in between Sandy and Bedford. Cycle hire is available. They also have a bouncy castle in the summer, an ice cream hut and a cage full of chipmunks whcih the children love to watch. The food is very nice and the ambiance wonderful BUT the service is extremely slow so don't come here for a quick bite to eat.
We took a group of 3 & 4 year old children to the Danish Camp as part of their learning about 'Living and Growing'. We had a fantastic time. The children were shown around The Moat - time was taken to show them the animals and talk to the children, who were very excited! The children were listened to and after the tour, it was into the cabin for ice-creams! (Which I must say I thought was very good value). Again, the staff took their time to serve each child individually as the children learnt to handle money and change! Safety and hygiene was excellent (obviously the children were accompanied all the time). The Danish Camp is a superb facility, nicely tucked away but definitely worth finding out about. Now the children want to go on the boat!!! Thank you to all involved!
The location and setting are superb especially at this time of the year.The food is excellent.But it's expensive,you have to queue for a long time to place your order, and when you eventually get to the front of the queue you wait half an hour or more for a sandwhich.The staff seem to take their time and don,t look bothered.
nice location, lovely for a stop-off for bike trails / walking but food is expensive for what it is - I nearly got my head bitten off yesterday for asking for a bit more bread to supplement my (£8.50!) ploughman's :-( next time will stick with the coffee and cakes and avoid the kitchen!
