About

A really memorable venue for your wedding reception. Many couples choose to include a "two Island" river cruise, a really relaxing start to the event and a great way to show guests our beautiful rivers. You can choose between a formal seated meal for 48 guests or a buffet. You may like to invite further guests on board for an evening party.

Covid update - you can book a gathering for 30 guests with buffet catering, but we are unable to accommodate formal dining.
