Great Food & Drink on your cruise event

We pride ourselves on our food which we think is head and shoulders above almost anything else you will find on the river Thames. Certainly pound-for-pound, considering the great value we offer, we are confident you won’t taste better.Our head chef Skye Coxe creates wonderful and flavoursome dishes across all our menus. Choose our innovative Street Food for informal events, party canapes, or full seated dinners to go with a formal occasion perhaps. Whatever your choice, our top priority is flavour. Colour, presentation and balance completes the delivery of a great food experience.

Why food experience on board your boat charter is so important to us

We’ve all been to restaurants, weddings, business events where the event itself is great, until the food comes out! We know how important food is to an event. It’s not just a box to be ticked on a planning schedule, it’s a highlight and also the part that many guests look forward to most. We work closely with our chef and waiting staff, doing all we can to deliver a great food experience. We love food ourselves, and we want you to love the food served on our boats. We think you will.
