While you enjoy a delicious two course lunch we'll take you on a relaxed mini voyage through the heart of London.
Our friendly waiters will serve you a scrumptious meal with a hearty main course, just right for an appetite fanned by river breezes. To accompany your meal our fully stocked bar is certain to have something tempt your palate. And when you've finished your dessert, you can take a stroll on deck to round off your river-day experience.
As you set off the Tower of London and Tower Bridge will be in sight, whether through panoramic windows or from the open upper deck, and you’ll see Big Ben and the London Eye before heading down towards Canary Wharf, with Tower Bridge in view again. (That’s if time and tide allow, and if they don’t we’ll do it the other way around.)
Your ticket includes:
Cruises last one hour and forty five minutes which gives you plenty of time to enjoy both the view and the company!
Whether it’s a first-time, original choice for you and your friends or a long-time favourite of river cruise aficionados we sure you’ll find it’s a great choice for a memorable meal with bright conversation.

Top quality food and service. I would recommend this to everyone and would like to go again myself.
They where fantastic .. It was my mums birthday.. We missed the boat.. But it was her 70th birthday..they where so kind and turned around to pick us up arriving late .. Thank you so much ..
Better than expected. Staff very friendly without being overbearing. Captain excellent with his stories and banter.
Service good and food was good. Very well organised.
Awesome view of London from a different perspective.
Very informative narration for the captain
I booked this as a surprise for my Mums' birthday. We were warmly welcomed on board on a beautiful sunny, hot day. I ordered 2 gluten free meals and they were superb! The roll was the best gluten free roll I've ever had. Our waiter was lovely, very polite and attentive, as were all the staff. Mum and I had the best time, thank you so much. Fab! Thank you.
Very enjoyable. Will recommend this cruise. Will also go on another in the future.
Overall arrangement is good. But it is better if there are more choice of lunch set.
The meal was lovely and the service was very good.
It would have been interesting whilst having lunch to hear a commentary or information about the places we passed. The only time I heard any commentary was when I went on deck! Otherwise brilliant.
Only one menu option at lunch, but it was good quality. The commentary was good, and the drinks reasonably priced. Well worth doing again next time we are in London.
Kind and professional service all around. Thank you
A lovely meal and service!
Excellent food and service. This was our second cruise after enjoying the afternoon high tea cruise, coming down from Cheshire. Highly recommended.
Enjoyed our lunch in comfort - quite a lot of people on board which was not a problem - except that we could not hear the commentary
The food wad lovely.
Food was great and the service by the catering crew was top class
On time, great captain who timed our cruise to perfection so we could go under Tower bridge as it was raised. Food was excellent. Staff friendly and attentive
A very nice lunch in comfortable surroundings. My family had a great time and I would definitely recommend this lunch and cruise on the River Thames.
The luncheon food was exceptionally good which was a pleasant surprise I didn't expect. The ship captain did well with his narrative of all the most interesting sights.
Staff were excellent and the food and cruise were very good
All aspects of the trip were excellent
Fantastic cruise. The staff were really friendly and went the extra mile to make it special. We were lucky enough to be on the cruise when the guns went off at The Tower of London to mark the Queen's 90th birthday. The captain stopped the boat opposite and we had the best view! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to do something special when in London and would advise booking a window seat - definitely worth the extra cost!
Good overall, but service was not my favorite. I had a very sore throat and asked for hot tea several times. They kept telling me they're making it, one sec, they're not done making it. They kept pushing alcohol and other drinks, which are not great for a sore throat. Finally it came at the end, when we had like 5 mins to drink it and no time to use the restroom after. Secondly, I'm a vegetarian who does not like mushrooms. Nowhere did it say what the vegetarian dish was. Come to find I couldn't eat it. The other food was good though. Those were my only complaints. The people I brought liked the food and cruise, and the view was nice.
Defiantly do this again. Staff were absolutely brill Thank you from Bernie and Andrea
Lovely food- good quality- friendly staff
Good cruise and interesting commentary., though a little indistinct at times. Food good and service excellent. Toilets good.
Lunch was just right in quality and quantity.
Excellent service was bought for my mum for a birthday present she and her friends loved every minute of it , and would recommend it anyone
Everything taste good!
It was a lovely lunch but I had to remind them of my drinks order and I'd asked if I could have a birthday candle in My sisters pudding and they didn't even acknowledge the request. Don't bother having a field to ask for things if they are ignored
Excellent service, friendly accommodating staff, very good tour guide information was given. Thoroughly enjoyed this cruise
Amazing day out with your luch cruise .We have enjoyed it very much.Thank you
Food was to an acceptable standard. Paying extra for a soft drink was maybe less welcome - maybe think about a price which includes one drink?
Have spread the word to family and friends!!! If you fancy a lovely lunch time cruise out with friends or family this is the one!!! Brilliant so enjoyed the food and the site seeing
We really enjoy it , staff were nice and food was lovely and tasty , we will go again soon
As above thankyou would recommend , the tour narrator was excellent .
Food was great!
I am a vegetarian and was really pleased with my meal. We all enjoyed meal very much..
I have been recommending your cruise to family and friends.
We were celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary. It could not have been better.
My only comment would be that I preferred going upstream first and then downstream
Everything about this is good,that's why we enjoy doing it every year.
It was a delight
Amazing service and v good food
Fantastic lunch cruise. Staff and boat were incredible. Smart clean and very tidy. The food was phenomenal. Cooked to perfection. Vegetables were as fresh as the day they were picked. Wine was of a good standard. Chicken was moist and succulent. All the staff were very efficient, smart and very polite. Highly recommend this cruise. Oh and there is also a live commentary explaining all the sites you can see from the river. Excellent service.
Great way to spend Sundaylunch time last week in May. I would like to sail at Christmas and have a meal.
Fantastic lunch, very enjoyable
There was confusion as to where to queue to get the best table on board and then after waiting for some time other passengers arriving later were allocated better tables for views! This was disappointing but the lunch was very good with good service. Thank you
the lunch cruise was fun, with excellent food and service.
Enjoyed it. Food was nice. Would have liked louder commentary of the sights rather than loud music
The cruise itself and lunch were both excellent. We were very lucky with the weather - the sun was shining! Thank you to the crew/staff for a very pleasurable trip!
Service and food were excellent. We have done the cruise before, but this time was definitely the best.
Food was excellent. Cruise was excellent despite a drizzly start.
Tower Bridge even opened - so that was a great event.
More than once choice. Should not be a problem if booked before cruise and a better children's menu would help.
didn't think hour and half would be enough time, thinking service etc would be rushed, but not at all, food served in timely manner not rushed between courses. food was great. will use again.
Very plesent trip, food was very good as was the service
I spent the last Easter with my cusins on your boat. Was our very first travel abroad far from our family and the first time we spent an important date far from home. Anyway the day has been wonderful, we enjoyed our meal and we had a pleasant look on Londond, on a different perspective from usual. I think that your cruise will stay in our heart. Hope to come back soon.
Staff extremely polite, friendly and welcoming, and we really enjoyed our meal.
Views and food were brilliant along with excellent staff and very informative commentary
Lovely lunch, commentary not intrusive, plenty of space on board
As earlier I thought the quality of the food was excellent. The commentary was good , only criticism was that my wife isn't a fan of chocolate cheesecake, would have been better if there had been an alternative choice .
very good value for money. Couldn't fault the trip
We didn't do the cruise that we paid for (lunch cruise)as we turned up at the wrong terminal (completely rOur fault), however the staff on the day tried to make the experience as good as they could. Complementary tea/coffee etc.
A special thank you to the lovely ground staff and on board.
Excellent meal very accommodating for someone with different meal requirements
Very pleasant and helpful staff and the food was first class.
Lunch cruise was a good idea. Relaxing and yet you could look at a lot of places in london
Not great food for veggies but everything else was so awesome that i would still give them 5star rating.
We would have preferred a longer cruise to savour the meal whilst keeping an eye on the sights.
Enjoyed the cruise. Meal was well served and the dining area was restaurant standard
Fantastic, 2nd best meal I ever had in my life. was expecting reheated "airplane food" was so chuffed, worth every penny!
Lovely lunch with excellent commentary on the sights and history of the Thames.
Food was perfect and what's not to like
The staff were great, nothing was too much trouble. The food was hot and tasted wonderful. We will definitely do another cruise!!
the food was delicious the service was excellent
running commentary was very good, excellent interaction with crew, staff, and visitors, will definitely return again. thanks from all my family members.
Well presented and very good service
A very enjoyable cruise with a lovely meal.
All in all very good. I have been on two lunch cruises, the lunch was very nice but exactly the same several months apart. Do you have the menu very often? I would certainly go again irrespective of a change of menu.
food great, staff great, whole experience great
Very good food, great service and get to see everything in once
Food was excellent especially the dessert. Wonderful service and staff,
Was really good
Really good food, served very efficiently
The cruise was perfect. I treated my sister to this lunch cruise as a birthday treat, she is unable to walk for long distances so it was an ideal way to take in some of the London attractions for her without any hassle. The lunch was superb and service impeccable. I have already recomended this lunch cruise to friends and family and plan on taking a friend on it this summer. It is well worth every penny I paid. Also my sister was delighted with it so it was a total win for me.
The lunch was excellant , cooked to perfection, the commentary was knowledgeable with a lovely hint of Witt . Would recommend
As above. Many thanks!
Staff made my mum's 80th birthday so special
Mother in law said it was superb! Great day great food and would recommend to friends an family
Lunch cruise was perfect, great views from the thames, fantastic food, staff were brilliant, all for a great price.
Service was excellent. Would have appreciated a small amount of commentary about the buildings/landmarks we passed.
Great bang for our buck. We had a lot of fun, it was a very memorable moment of our vacation. Your lunch cruise is second to none. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon!
excellent service except that I asked for hot tea as a beverage upon being seated and was told that I would have to wait until dessert was served. So I had to drink water before and with my meal instead.
My only criticism is that the meal was exactly the same as it was over a year ago. I would have expected some change in the intervening period. Having said that, the food quality was still good.
Excellent and very enjoyable lunch and cruise.
Lunch was amazing
Everyone really enjoyed the cruise and the staff were helpful as we had a wheelchair user.
Friendly & efficient staff
The food was fantastic, as was the service. Commentary was excellent! Really funny & engaging. Had a brilliant time.
Excellent value,food was very good value for money. The wine was very reasonably priced too
Staff ,lunch and tourist info fantastic could not fault it
Food and service was brilliant
Very nice thank you
The food and service was excellent and we enjoyed the trip.
it was good but could do better with more than 1 lunch choice. the food was very good ,do'nt get me wrong but at least a choice of 2 would be great
Brilliant in every aspect. Staff were extremely courteous
VERY NICE MEAL ON BOARD
ONE SMALL THING - IT WAS DIFFICULT TO HEAR THE COMMENTARY FROM OUR LOVELY WINDOW SEATS
As above, excellent
Food was very delicious
Meal was very good and hot. Would have liked a starter eg. A soup or a pate or melon . Will certainly do it again. Thankyou
Food out of this world.
Kind staff lovely day cheers city cruises
