Catering

Food & Drink

We cater for all types of private events from business meetings, networking events and even Christmas parties!

We suggest that you use our recommended caterers to supply the food for your event, as they understand the complexities of catering on a boat. We recommend The Old Mill at Bardsea (also known as the Farmshop at Baycliffe), who come with very reliable reputations. They have both put together different delicious menus to try and accommodate everyone’s requirements (please find below). They can be flexible with some of the food options available, however have used popular ideas to compile ideal menus for different types of people and occasions.

If you do choose to use your own company for catering then we require them to staff the event, provide a copy of their public liability insurance certificate and it will also incur a small surcharge.

You can only provide your own wine/Champagne for welcome drink purposes and this incurs a small corkage charge. We will however store, chill (if required), pour and provide glasses for the first drink ready for you and your guests boarding.

You can supply your own food and drink at no extra charge on the Traditional Wooden Launches, as these are not licensed vessels. Modern Launches and steamers are licensed so supplying your own refreshments incurs a surcharge and paid corkage will also be required.
