Romantic trip down the Thames
alexdasilva88
, Feb 2020
This was a perfect Valentine's Weekend trip. It had the romantic aspect of river cruising with beautiful views, complemented by the beautifully presented three-course meal and the personalised service in Hannah. It was our first valentine's and it was made extra special by the package offered which was generous and personalised almost with the way Hannah presented our options. As my partner is Italian, Hannah recommned us some great, authentic Italian restaurants in London to try - she even wrote them down for us! If there was a note to add, more ambient music than audio tour, as only at the beginning did we tune into this, and after we lost ourselves with the views, excellent food and drink, and our conversations. I would 100% do this again!

Food disappointing

Pleasant experience but the food was disappointing. The 'cream' in the Eton mess had the texture of, and tasted like, semolina. The chicken was nice but the pearl barley was gloopy with hard broad beans and loads of peas mixed in topped with a big bunch of watercress.

This was an excellent way to spend a lunch time on Easter Saturday.The boat left on time. The food was superb.The only complaint , be it a small one, I could not hear the commentary very well.This maybe due to other customers talking. Overall, it deserves a five star rating.
