Keeping you safe

As we things progress in 2021 we will eventually return to normal. At the current time we have limited table and group sizes for this cruise as well as overall passenger numbers. Each table will be shielded from other guests by one of our brand new and bespoke boat screens, which give you a great view but also keep you safe.

You may be asked wear a face covering for boarding the vessel or when moving around and you will find our crew both on deck, in the galley and waiting staff are wearing additional protective PPE in line with government requirements. We are all the same friendly smiling people and the food we know tastes even better having had to wait so many months to enjoy Sunday Lunch on the Thames. You can find full details here.
