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!
