The best night in town is on the river! 

Wine, dine and dance on this great dinner cruise on the Thames, see spectacular views and enjoy show songs and top hits sung by a live performer. Your evening begins the moment you step aboard and are handed a welcome glass of fizz as our singer begins to entertain you and a friendly waiter serves a delicious starter. 

Your ticket includes:

  • A three-hour river cruise
  • A delicious four course meal
  • Sparkling wine on arrival
  • Half bottle of wine per guest
  • Live performer and dancing till late
 

Things just get better as you hum along to the pop tunes and hit songs from West End musicals that accompany your delicious four course dinner and half bottle of wine per guest.  

Stunning views are on the menu too, as the inky-dark night along great vistas of riverscape gives way to the spectacular lighting of Thames-side buildings.

The London Showboat Cruise

    ★★★★★

    The whole trip was very well managed, the meal was well presented and very tasty the music was very easy to listen to and was quite varied. Considering the cost of the whole trip which includes a three hour cruise, meal and Music it is extremely good value


    20 Jun 2018

    as I had no reminder from you, I completely forgot about the date & therefore missed out totally.i'm sure it would have been lovely! Someone was lucky enough to have extra elbow room at there table!


    20 Jun 2018

    ★★★

    It supposed to be a celebrating dinner with my boyfriend, and we were seated on a table of 4 with an another couple. Not really romantic. Should do more table of 2 and only a couple with 4 seats! Also too busy not enough space between each table. The service was not really enjoyable as every waiting were clearing serving in a random way instead of serving clearing everybody on a same time and let everyone enjoy the meal with no distraction. Spend a nice evening, but could be way better!

    The evening was really popular with well over 100 guests. The meal and service were both excellent. We were offered house wine or beer as our inclusive during but paid a bit more for our preferred bottle of wine. The team worked really hard and service was good. The entertainment was a singer with backing tracks and he seemed to go down well. The highlight for me was having a celebratory drink on the top deck as we sailed back under a floodlit Tower Bridge.

    Very friendly and courteous staff. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. The meal was nice enough considering everyone got served at once and the cruise was near enough full. There was no choice however which was a bit disappointing. The singer was very good and it was nice to have a dance at the end of the evening.

    Great evening, made even better by perfect weather and sunset. Food and service excellent. Only criticism is that we would probably have preferred it with background music rather than the live entertainment. Captain did an excellent job as he heard that Tower Bridge was going to open so made sure we saw it - a nice added bonus.

    We were a party of 5 and we booked online at the reduced rate of £49 each. This was a Friday. Everything was as advertised. Welcome sparkling wine, half a bottle of wine and a 4 course meal. Good food and atmosphere. The cruise was about 3 hours and went down past the Dome before it turned back. We had window seats. First course of dinner was served on the table before arrival, which was good as you just started eating as soon as you sit down. Boat left on time at 7.45pm. The upper deck is open with seats and many people sometimes went upstairs for a better view. The live music was a lady who sang prepared songs with a good sound system to back her up. Later on she just played from the DJ system. She cleverly involved everyone in the music and dancing. On the whole I would recommend this outing.

    01 Jun 2018

    ★★★

    The food was good but the entertainment wasn’t great. All the singer sang was ballads most of the night and nothing really that you would want to get up and dance to. At the end there was a disco which was good but it only lasted the last half an hour. I also ordered a mojito and it wasn’t a proper one, it was a pre made mojito mix like what you get out the supermarket. It didn’t have leaves or anything in it and cos over £8 which I thought was shocking. The starter was waiting for us on arrival which was great but by the time the final course was served the boat trip was almost over. Didn’t really leave much time to enjoy the boat as we were waiting on meals to come. Think the boat trip should last a little longer after the last course has been served so that we have at least an hour to dance to good music or visit the top deck. The singer needs to revisit her cabaret set as her song selection wasn’t great. Also the rules said no trainers and dress smart casual, so we made the effort to dress up nice for the night where as others turned up in trainers with jeans and jumpers and shopping bags like they had just spent the day shopping and nipped onto the boat for some food. Made us feel over dressed and made the night feel less of a special party atmosphere. Think staff need to be strickter about dress code when boarding or send reminders in emails about dress code. All and all it was ok but not a night I’ll always remember for being great. Wouldn’t recommend anyone to go on it.

    Food entertainment views were amazing. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and ask for a table for 2 when we arrived but was told that they tell you where you can sit. So we were put on a table for 4 which was not the romantic evening we thought we would have. The guy who seated us said that if we wanted a table for 2 it would cost more. I did not see anything about that on there website. If you don't mind sharing a table with others then it is a very good evening

    Very well organised, efficient and attentive staff, providing a good service. Food & wine was very good. The bar room crooner was a little disappointing - expected a more showy production.

    It was a wonderful evening. The only thing I would like to comment on is giving fresh fruit salad that contains mostly grapes to a diabetic could cause problems for some. They contain the most sugars in fruit.

    We have been on many different boating evenings around the world and the food has always been basic, 10 out of 10 for the food,nit just kept coming and was delicious. The lady arranging the entertainment was great. A real fun evening.

    I bought 4 tickets and then 2 more and asked to be seated near to each other, the customer service adviser was so helpful and made a note on my booking and when I came to board the boat we were all seated perfectly together.

    Very friendly and courteous staff. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. The meal was nice enough considering everyone got served at once and the cruise was near enough full. There was no choice however which was a bit disappointing. The singer was very good and it was nice to have a dance at the end of the evening.

    Great evening, made even better by perfect weather and sunset. Food and service excellent. Only criticism is that we would probably have preferred it with background music rather than the live entertainment. Captain did an excellent job as he heard that Tower Bridge was going to open so made sure we saw it - a nice added bonus.

    We were a party of 5 and we booked online at the reduced rate of £49 each. This was a Friday. Everything was as advertised. Welcome sparkling wine, half a bottle of wine and a 4 course meal. Good food and atmosphere. The cruise was about 3 hours and went down past the Dome before it turned back. We had window seats. First course of dinner was served on the table before arrival, which was good as you just started eating as soon as you sit down. Boat left on time at 7.45pm. The upper deck is open with seats and many people sometimes went upstairs for a better view. The live music was a lady who sang prepared songs with a good sound system to back her up. Later on she just played from the DJ system. She cleverly involved everyone in the music and dancing. On the whole I would recommend this outing.

    Seats very tightly packed together on a very warm night - poor ventilation - no air con made it very sticky in the centre of the boat. Otherwise all very good - entertainment and food first class

    This was just the most amazing evening. Everything was just perfect, the food was lovely and so was the evening’s entertainment. The Thames at night is just beautiful. Don’t always realise what a beautiful city London is until you see it all lit up at night. Even the weather was perfect, what more could we want. Would thoroughly recommend

    ★★★

    The food was good but the entertainment wasn’t great. All the singer sang was ballads most of the night and nothing really that you would want to get up and dance to. At the end there was a disco which was good but it only lasted the last half an hour. I also ordered a mojito and it wasn’t a proper one, it was a pre made mojito mix like what you get out the supermarket. It didn’t have leaves or anything in it and cos over £8 which I thought was shocking. The starter was waiting for us on arrival which was great but by the time the final course was served the boat trip was almost over. Didn’t really leave much time to enjoy the boat as we were waiting on meals to come. Think the boat trip should last a little longer after the last course has been served so that we have at least an hour to dance to good music or visit the top deck. The singer needs to revisit her cabaret set as her song selection wasn’t great. Also the rules said no trainers and dress smart casual, so we made the effort to dress up nice for the night where as others turned up in trainers with jeans and jumpers and shopping bags like they had just spent the day shopping and nipped onto the boat for some food. Made us feel over dressed and made the night feel less of a special party atmosphere. Think staff need to be strickter about dress code when boarding or send reminders in emails about dress code. All and all it was ok but not a night I’ll always remember for being great. Wouldn’t recommend anyone to go on it.

    Food entertainment views were amazing. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and ask for a table for 2 when we arrived but was told that they tell you where you can sit. So we were put on a table for 4 which was not the romantic evening we thought we would have. The guy who seated us said that if we wanted a table for 2 it would cost more. I did not see anything about that on there website. If you don't mind sharing a table with others then it is a very good evening
