28 Years of Sail N Dine. I offer 2 trips most days. The 10.30 to 1.30 buffet brunch sail for up to 8 people gives a hands on sailing experience with a sumptuous buffet lunch with wine priced from £35 per person. My jewel in the crown evening sail leaves at 6pm and is a taste of true yachting, eating and drinking out on the Lake! My 4 course dinner is cooked by me using the finest local produce cooked to your specification whilst the conversation (and wine)flows! I take up to 6 (Adults only) in the evening and the sail is priced from £55 per person including transport to and from the yacht within a 5 mile radius. You must of guessed by now that I am completely a one man band! I am receptionist, chauffeur, wine waiter, skipper, chef and washer upper! Check out my website and if you have any questions then please give me a call.

Once again John provided us with a fantastic night on Lake Windermere. This is a must for anyone who wants to do something a little bit different. My wife and I cannot imagine a visit to Bowness without a night on the lake with John. As usual the food was gorgeous and our host was excellent. My advice, give it... More

Big thanks to John for making our 30th family birthday bash one to remember. Food was delicious and experience of sailing was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

When we tried to book a cruise at short notice with Sail 'n Dine, John explained that whilst his planned sunset cruise was fully-booked, he could take my wife and I on a private cruise over lunch. It turned out to be a lovely outing and we were thrilled that we had made the decision to take the cruise. John... More

Had a fantastic (if slightly damp) trip out on Maddie Two with John for my husband's 50th birthday. We all thoroughly enjoyed the few hours on the water, especially our two sons (10 & 12) who steered the boat in 23 knot winds. John kept a close eye and gave directions, whilst the boys had their first (and probably not... More

We treat ourselves to a Sail n Dine every time we visit the lakes and John never lets us down. He manages to produce top quality restaurant food while maintaining the flow of both wine and banter. Just the best and most reliable restaurant experience - highly recommended! (Slightly tempted to give a 4 star review just for the banter... More

We had a great time today sailing on Windermere. John was a very knowledgable guide with a lot of interesting facts about the lake and its surroundings. We called to see if he had any tours available but it turned out we were the only ones interested today. John made a private tour for us and an excellent lunch to... More

The Lakes are idyllic. To see them at their best you must go on the water. If you have a knowledgeable guide so much the better.with John you get the full package. An intersting guy who has researched his topic well. He loves cooking and offers a great experience for up to 6 people. The lunch or supper is provided... More

Our first experience of SailndDine with John and I am certain it won't be our last. We were booked as a couple and were joined by two other couples for the evening. John is a super host and quickly ensured that we all felt relaxed; by the time we boarded we already felt like we knew each other really well.... More
