Canal cruise catering

Enjoy our new menus

Food can be served by prior arrangement for charter groups or parties of 25 or more if not chartering the entire boat. We’ve created four standard catering menus and two celebration menus for you to choose from. They are served buffet-style and are for a maximum of 53 passengers.

Due to the restricted galley space on board we are unfortunately unable to provide a mixed selection, so you will need to order the same menu for all members of your party.

One slice of handmade sponge cake
& a cup of tea (or coffee/squash).

Beer, spirits and soft drinks are available from our bar, and our wine list is available on request. As we are licensed premises, customers are not normally allowed to bring their own alcohol. The only exception to this is that by prior arrangement, charter trip customers may bring their own wine or champagne, subject to £5 per bottle corkage. We will provide glasses and serve the drinks.

You are welcome to use your own outside caterers, subject to a surcharge of £1.50 per head.
