I've lived in Twickenham for about 8 years and can't believe today was the first time I've ever gone on this boat trip! Really friendly staff, bar onboard, and spectacular views. I highly recommend you take a cruise up to Kingston or Hampton Court and sit back and relax! More...

Navigare sul fiume Tamigi con questi "finti" battelli a Vapore è molto rilassante ed affascinante .. anche se un po' troppo lento ..:-)

Boat trips along the Thames. Took the boat to Hampton Court with my children. On a return ticket children where free on one of the journeys but still quite cheap. Lovely looking boats and nice inside. Has a bar where drinks and snacks are served. Lovely way to travel up and down the river. Takes about 30 mins to Hampton Court from Kingston. Richmond longger. Beautiful if the suns out. Highly recommended More...

Pleasant boat ride, river is pretty, good for kids - We (I and my spouse) took the boat for two stops from Hampton Court to Turks Pier Kingston with my 3-year old grandson. It was a pleasant ride, the perfect amount of time for my grandson to enjoy looking at other boats and enjoy being on a boat without getting bored. The boats are pleasant, not crowded when we went, and the river is very pretty. This isn't a must-see type site, but if you are looking for a pleasant way to spend some time or something that the kids would enjoy, then it is a nice option. They also took our stroller (buggy) for us and stashed it someplace and gave it back when we got off. More...

Dear Jo , Hope you and your team are enjoying a busy time at work which is good for everyone and keeping your clients happy at your lovely cafe . You can take holiday later .
I am sorry I haven’t been in touch sooner to say a huge thank you for all your help and kindness on the night of my party. I also want to tell you that all my guests were gushing over the catering. They all congratulated you and I think Hannah (sorry if I got the wrong name ) for your hard work on the night .
I shall definitely give you a 5star rating for everything you provided and would have no delay to recommend you should anyone ask.
Many thanks for keeping the cakes etc which I collected and had a garden party the following day . I also have one of your fruit bowl which I shall return ASAP . At the moment I am just in Devon winding down after all my guests have gone back to their various countries, hence my very late thank you email.
Once again I thank you so much for your help and wonderful food , we both felt you were the person we wanted when we first met you . We wish you all the very best in future .
Our sincere thanks to you. We know who to come to for any future celebrations we may have.
Cheers

Brilliant boat trips, really good on summer days. My 7 year old just loves it. Always on time at Hampton Court, nice staff, great fun for the weekend. (Little bit expensive to do every weekend though.) More...

I went with my daughter to a friends, hen do. We had a good time, queue for the bar at the start was long, but died down after a while. Music played from a laptop, a mixture which worked.Toilets need a really good scrub, pretty smelly at the start of the evening. Didn't enjoy fish and chips, far to greasy. More...

The trip from Kingston to Richmond is very relaxing and it is interesting to see the area from a different view. Well worth the cost and the hour that it takes.

Excellent service, friendly and helpful staff. We had a lovely return cruise between Hampton Court and Kingston. Our 3 children loved it and the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially with helping getting the buggy on and off the boat. My wife left her phone on the boat and Captain Pete went out of his way to drop of the phone to us late on a Sunday evening!!Highly recommended More...

Q&As

We supply a great selection of salads such as Harissa roasted red pepper, puy lentil, red onion and feta. Roasted Butternut Squash with mixed leaves, seeds and nuts. Asparagus, new potato, pea, mange tout with a watercress dressing. These salads go perfecting with our homemade quiche, meat platters of BBQs. They are filling, healthy and full of flavour, coulee and texture.

I would say my signature dish is Chocolate & Chorizo Chilli Beef. This is a slow cooked chilli made with braising steak. I love slow cooking dishes such as lamb Tagine or Maple and Honey Slow cooked Shoulder of Pork or Harissa Marinated Lamb Shoulder. The slow cooked meats go really well with the salads above.

Find out how formal they want the event and whether the client has any favourite dishes or types of food. From there I will make some suggestions based on what has worked well and proved popular in the past.

I love a happy customer! From the initial introduction and finding out the customers specific requirements to creating a bespoke menu and watching them enjoy of the event unfold.

I have ran my own business for 6 years but changed from running a cafe to concentrating on catering so I can crate more bespoke experiences and have more interaction with customers.

We offer good quality catering and a personal bespoke service tailored to meet individual customer needs.
