Owner description: 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.

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

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

This is an excellent outing and I would recommend it to anyone. I booked for 6 for a birthday treat for my wife and from the initial enquiry to the actual evening John was so helpful and accommodating. He was happy to alter the menu for two of us to suit our diets, transported us from home and back and... More

From the first interaction with John I knew I had picked the right experience to celebrate my Dad's special birthday. The booking and arranging was effortless. On the day John picked us up right on time and drove us down to Maddie Two. We had a wonderful time out on the lake. John is knowledgeable, entertaining and a fantastic chef.... More
