Guests are welcome to board from 1900 and the bar will be open for an aperitif before slipping our lines and sailing at 19.30. The chef and his onboard team will then serve dinner to you and your guests as we glide along the river. The vessel will return to Caversham Pier for 21.30. Each table is sectioned off so you have your own personal space with full table service throughout the cruise. Please find our extra summer 2020 safety information here
