Bateaux London

1 user review 4

Bateaux London is a must-do dining experience combining fresh food with exclusive views of London and live entertainment to create one of the city's most unique river boat restaurants on the Thames. Dining here includes Sunday lunch jazz, afternoon tea and romantic date nights.

Darcie & May Green

62 user reviews 5

Stroll down Paddington and you'll pick up plenty of interesting sights along the way, but there are none as colourful as Darcie & May Green. A corker of a boat restaurant with Australian brunch at its core, you can even hop aboard the attached boat for cocktails once you're done with grub.

London Craft Beer Cruise

120 user reviews 5

Sailing down the River Thames, the London Craft Beer Cruise offers afternoon excursions packed full of carefully curated pints, tasty BBQ dishes and incredible views. Meet fellow hopheads as you samples sips from the likes of Signature Brew, Hackney Brewery and Anspach & Hobday.

Tamesis Dock

66 user reviews 4

Get your Italian kicks on the water at the Tamesis Dock, the converted barge found on the Thames at Vauxhall. From a hefty range of vegan and veggie toppings through to meat-stuffed calzones, you'll be hard pressed to find a prettier setting for your pizzas.

Alfred Le Roy

4 user reviews 5

Setting off from Hackney Wick, Alfred Le Roy is one of the dreamiest dining experiences you can have on the water in London. The barge restaurant will take you on a tour of the River Lee, filling you up with cocktails and cheese and charcuterie boards as they go.
