Lovely experience
Really good value for money, the food was really nice, we had daphoise potato chicken in a mushroom and tarragon sauce, followed by a chocolate and raspberry cake.We had a good tour of the Thames, The only problem was from the inside you could hear the informative information being played.
We were a little disappointed that we were unable to buy a hot drink, it only got served with lunch apparently, so they wouldn't sell us one.
There are toilets on the boat and you can go up stairs for a outside view.

Does what it says on the label, but better.
Oct 2021
The boat left on time as advertised, the food was very good, the staff were excellent and the service was excellent. A unique experience sailing down the Thames whilst lunching on chicken and chocolate pudd. We did indulge in a bottle of the house red which was good and not expensive. Overall good value for money and difficult to fault. We would certainly go again.

Extremely poor booking system and no service whatsoever
Booked as a special birthday treat for my wife, with our young family. Booking was made on-line and credit card charged, so assumed naively that the booking was secure. We planned the rest of our weekend around this (eg timed visit to the Shard), so was both surprised and disappointed to receive an email several days later telling us that the requested date was no longer available. We were only offered alternative dates on weekdays (no use in school term time). We complained and have been told we can get the money back on the card, but nothing else offered and feel overall massively let down. Bookings still appear to be open for the exact time and date we had ‘booked’. It may be good for those who get to go on it on - but my advice would be buyer beware!

A great cruise and excellent meal
Aug 2021
A delightful couple of hours spent cruising the river from Tower Pier. the trip included an excellent 2 course lunch served by friendly and very pleasant staff. The experience offered a different and unique view of many well-known landmarks. A commentary was provided and there was ample time to go onto the top deck and enjoy the open-air views from there. If in a party of 2, ask for a window table.
