We have a full licensed bar on board (including wine, prosecco, craft beer, cider, Pimms and Gin & Tonic, and a selection of soft drinks) and serve tea and coffee (including decaffeinated), latte, cappuccino, hot chocolate and a selection of herbal infusions.
On most trips we offer delicious homemade cakes and slices (@ £3 per large slice) – a favourite for many passengers!
Sorry! We will not be operating any of the following trips for the rest of 2020.
We have several shorter trips that are especially suitable for younger children (for whom a 2½ hour trip may be too long) . These include the following and public trips to Widbrook, all of which typically last up to 90 minutes.
Sorry but these three trips are not available for 2020.
We currently plan to operate the following trips.
Please note that we do not permit passengers to bring their own alcohol on board, unless you have chartered the whole boat for a private trip, in which case wine may be brought on board on payment of an £8 per bottle corkage charge.
