The clue's in the name here - it's on a yacht, moored on The Thames. The views on a good day are therefore certainly pretty pleasant, with the window seats offering an uninterrupted vista out across to the South Bank. 

The food here ranges from sharing platters (think mackerel pâté with toasted sourdough, potted crayfish tails with mini loaf, and ribs in a BBQ sauce) and starters of pan-fried squid with chilli and lemon, and game terrine with pickled veg and a beetroot and horseradish cream to mains of lamb rump, slow-roasted pork belly, roasted grouse and duck breast served with a juniper and madeira sauce. The grill serves steaks, burgers and spatchcock poussin, too.  

Sunday roasts prove popular, as do afternoon teas featuring freshly-baked scones and cakes alongside a selection of finger sandwiches. Keep an eye out for special offers and seasonal events, too.

I was given a Groupon voucher for this place, which included 2 courses and a Pimm's. I had a butternut squash soup to start and then fish and chips. I'm never that person to order fish and chips at an actual restaurant, but I just felt that the food choices didn't sound that exciting. The food itself was okay a little bland (perfect place to take your nan / mom), and the portions were HUGE for a lunch time. 


The boat was nice, but the decor a little old; looking round the place, we were the youngest there by far...


I personally am no great on boats and get seasick quite easily, and although the view of all the London monuments / attractions was amazing, I just couldn't ignore the swaying (so much boat traffic in the Thames). Anyway, the staff were nice and friendly and the view really made it!

Came here for a birthday lunch on a lovely summer's day.  The setting was perfect - views down the Thames and warm breeze coming through the open windows.  This is a "proper" restaurant with white linen tablecloths and napkins - perfect for my celebration.  We each ordered a salad starter which were small but appetising.  My main was sea bass, perfectly cooked and my companion had a risotto which was "delicious".  The service was faultless.  The Thames was at high tide and at times the swell from passing boats made us feel we were at sea!  A lovely restaurant.
