Lovely Trip down the River

It was not the best day weather wise - pouring with rain, but it didn't distract from a most enjoyable afternoon. Food was delicious and the service came with a big smile. Value for money and I would highly recommend it.

Having previously experienced the lunch time cruise with my wife it was clear that the evening dinner would be the perfect way to celebrate a friends retirement. From the first friendly welcome at reception to the time we disembarked the service was impecable, the food the band the ambience and of course, the views make this the perfect night out.... More

I was bought a lunch cruise as a birthday gift, when we arrived I was told we were table 45 and after a short wait everyone boarded the ship and were shown to their table. We were lucky enough to be seated at a window table which was fabulous. The food was simple and tasted lovely and the historical commentary... More

Everything was absolutely excellent. The food, staff, entertainment and of course the evening river trip. A lovely touch was to,circle tower bridge twice to the playing of land of hope and glory. I would highly recommend this trip.

I decided to reserve a table for me and my boyfriend, to celebrate St Valentine's day and his birthday in one night: special St Valentine's package, 4 courses, two glasses of champagne and wine, plus a single red rose. As I don't eat meat, I emailed in advance the Company, asking for a veggie option for my main. Unfortunately the... More

My wife and children treated us (my wife and me) to new year's evening dinner on the MV Harmony to celebrate my landmark 70th birthday. We arrived at 7pm and joined a table for ten people. Once the ice was broken we all quickly became "best friends" and looked forward to a great evening together... and what an evening it... More

We received a trip as a gift having been on this service before some 20 years ago! We were blessed with a beautiful cold and sunny day. The food was good (small portions for a big lad like me but what else would you expect) and the service excellent and efficient. In many ways the 1.5 hour cruise passed too... More

This is our second time in a bateaux restaurant, the first in Dubai. Pleased to find the service, food and experience as delightful as the first. Music themes as we passed Big Ben and made various circular passes by London bridge added to the speciality of the evening.

Booked our office outing as we organise education and training for those navigating on the Thames. It was well organised with cloakroom on the pier. Shown to our table with the sun shining through what is really a Greenhouse on a hull! Champagne followed by salmon on a slate dish, Turkey and trimmings, dessert all tasty and we'll served.
