With our new BOTTOMLESS drinks ADD ON option - Combining a canalboat cruise of the River Lea, with food & drinks. It's all aboard the Alfred Le Roy departing from Hackney Wick at the edge of the London Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park before heading out on a two hour east end waterway voyage. On bright sunny days the boat is light and airy with retractable roof sections, or comfortably warm, cosy and sheltered at other times. There are windows throughout the entire cabin, so everyone gets a view. We play an up-beat mix of eclectic background music tracks. The bar is open throughout serving cocktails, with five decadent specialities, as well as the classics, a range of wines, spirits, craft beers & cider, soft drinks and juices. If all that goodness is already making you feel hungry?, Our tasty food menu includes large filled savoury croissants with fillings such as Smoked salmon, Pastrami and dill or Ham, soft cheese and mango chutney. As well as sweet pastries also available. (see menu tab for full current menus)

Cruise tickets are £12.50 each per person; You can also opt in to enjoy our bottomless Bloody Mary, Prosecco & Mimosa ADD ON option - for an additional £25 per person.

We have a very limited kitchen so please email us in advance if you have any food allergies or dietary requirements, so we are aware and can advise on suitability or look at alternative options. captain@alfredleroy.com

No dogs or animals (except guide dogs). No refunds for late arrivals or missed cruises. Only food and drink purchased onboard to be consumed onboard. No smoking inside the cabin. Sorry, we don't allow glitter, table sparkles or party poppers onboard for environmental reasons as we are on the canal and these can affect the ecology of the waterways. Inflatables are also not permitted.

If travelling to us by public transport, please check your journey in advance, as some operators may have scheduled closures, or replacement services on weekend dates.

All diners on the cruise can get unlimited glasses of prosecco; Bloody Marys or mimosas for an additional £25 per person. Terms & Conditions: Maximum 2 hours per table; Customers must order a food item (not included in £25 fee). Responsible drinking must apply – we have the right to refuse service to anyone we believe to be inebriated. T&Cs are subject to change.

Stuffed croissants were great, the guys serving were really friendly, drinks really tasty, a great brunch! Visited Alfred Le Roy on 2017-09-03

Great few hours on the Alfred Le Roy, Staff were helpful and friendly and the boat was lovely inside. The areas the boat goes through are lovely, perfect on such a sunny day with the roof open. The tables are in booths of 6 or 4, so would recommend booking a whole booth to yourselves. Finally the bottomless option is great value for money if your going to drink a lot, they are not stingy or slow to refill drinks like some other places that offer bottomless options. Would defiantly do the trip again! Visited Alfred Le Roy on 2017-08-27

Just wanted to add that after submitting my review below, the team did get in touch and have refunded me! Excellent customer service. I'd recommend the cruise whole heartedly. Visited Alfred Le Roy on 2017-08-06

Lovely people operating this delightfully laid-back cruise. We had fab weather, and enjoyed the ever-changing urban/residential/marsh/meadow landscape, complete with swans, cygnets, herons, canal boat residents and their much loved micro-gardens, and even some free fall submersible lifeboats moored alongside the canal. Service was attentive without being intrusive, and reasonably priced drinks, and great savoury-filled croissants ( limited menu made absolute sense). A really interesting local area too - could combine boat trip with pub lunch and / or local tour of exceptionally vibrant street art? Visited Alfred Le Roy on 2017-08-06

Really good fun and relaxing. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Only disappointing thing was finding out after I'd been charged for an extra glass of prosecco I didn't have which at £6.50 a glass was pretty annoying. Visited Alfred Le Roy on 2017-08-06

Hi Samantha, we're super sorry if we made a mistake and overcharged you! The Captain will be in touch to put this right. We promise we're not pirates!!

Really enjoyed the cruise, great atomosphere, the service was very good and the seating was great for a group on 4. We also had a vegetarian with us and they were very amendable to adpating the menu for something that would be vegetarian. We also loved the choices of belinis on offer! I would definitly look to come back! Visited Alfred Le Roy on 2017-07-16

What an excellent event, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I'm not a drinker however the experience was worth the price. The staff are very considerate and ensure all aboard are comfortable. A must for any Londoner. Who would have believed we was only travelling at no more than 5 mph. Bonus was the weather was warm and sunny. Keep up the good work Team Alfred!

What a find...Great boat exterior and interior, friendly and relaxed staff who looked after us so well and kept us topped up relentlessly with great drinks, and even helped our friend with her indigestion with a soda and angostura bitters with orange peel remedy. Tasty snacks served too. We had a blast, but also had time to enjoy changing views of the River Lea and all the creativity and eccentricities of human activities along that stretch, such as the under-the-flyover rave-boat, and the couple who were rowing an inflatable paddling pool along the river using a stick and a sign as oars!!! Many friendly interactions with passersby and other boat folk. Also saw fine spectacles of the animal world at close range, like Herons and baby swans/moorhens. Really fun and friendly crowd on the boat, but not rowdy like those scary party boats on the Thames! All round perfect. Just wish it was even longer than two hours! Thank you Alfred Le Roy and all who sailed on her! Visited Alfred Le Roy on 2017-06-25

My friends and I had a wonderful time on the cruise. There was no pressure for bottomless prosecco- we just ordered a couple of bottles. The food was delicious. Only thing would have been nice to have a wider variety of sweet pastries or something else for dessert. Staff were lovely and accomadating. Thanks very much, we will be back!

We went on the overpoured Sunday cruise last weekend. I got it as a present for my brothers birthday and we all loved it and had a great time. The service was brilliant we never had an empty glass and the snacks were delicious. If anything we wished we could of stayed on longer. I would definitely do this again, very good value for money.

Throughly enjoyed it. The boat is really cute, the soundtrack was great and the staff were really fantastic. We opted for the bottomless drinks and we were never left with an empty glass! Would throughly recommend and will probably do it again. Thanks for a great afternoon (it was well worth the hangover!)

I booked the boat for my birthday with a few friends and it was perfect. It helped that the weather was gorgeous but even without that the staff were helpful, friendly and efficient and made the afternoon a real treat. The drinks on board were very delicious and plentiful too! Well done guys. Can't wait to come back and recommend it to all my friends x Visited Alfred Le Roy on 2017-05-14
