We thanked The Yacht today for an exceptional lunchtime experience yesterday. From the first moment we stepped on the boat, we felt it was a really special encounter, from the warmth of their greeting to the really professional but friendly service. All the waiting staff were very attentive, and made sure we had everything we needed, especially our main waitress. We had a fabulous table, too, which made it extra special; we could both easily see all activity on the river and enjoyed the views. The food was a revelation, so good. The starters were delicious, the Sirloin steak concept - rather than slices - was original, the vegetables beautifully cooked. The meal was good value, with plenty of food and extra gravy. Dessert was definitely worth having. We loved the glassware, too, which accentuated the wines and made it feel even more of a special occasion because so much thought had been given even to that aspect of the dining experience and the glasses were a pleasing shape. We congratulate all the staff. We really appreciated the timings between courses, the exceptional cooking and presentation skills of the chefs, and the professionalism and memorable qualities of all waiting and greeting staff. The whole concept of eating such a lovely and relaxing meal on a boat on the Thames was very special and cannot be recommended highly enough.

Enjoyed afternoon tea on a very windy day aboard The Yacht. The staff were friendly and attentive serving a good selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones. So many treats that they kindly wrapped a pack up so we could enjoy the rest later.

The food was delicious. The service was excellent. The setting was unusual, in a really nice way. A place to go for more of a treat rather than everyday though.

I booked the champagne afternoon tea for my mum's birthday through red letter days and feel very disappointed with the service we received. We arrived at the restaurant and were taken to our table where we were left for over 15 minutes without anyone coming over or acknowledging we were there, finally the waiter came over and asked us what tea we would like and said he would get the food ordered. We were not given any champagne I had to ask another waitress for this. We waited again for a long while for the sandwiches to come out, by this point the tea was cold and we had both finished our champagne, we noticed other people in the restaurant also were waiting and the waitress was giving complimentary drinks to people (something my mum and I were never offered), it would have been nice to know what was going on but instead were just left wondering why it was taking so long. When the food did finally come out it was all very nice. There was no apology for the wait until we had finished and the waitress came over to collect our plates, again there was no reasoning why just a sorry and we would be receiving something (i would guess a discount voucher) by email this week. The food was 5 star, it was just a shame the service let it down. I understand that sometimes restaurants can be short staffed/things go wrong but it would have been nice to be told and if you are going to offer complimentary drinks then it should be to all customers not selected.

Great setting and atmosphere. Had to wait over 30 minutes between each course and felt like our table was forgotten at times as we had to prompt the waiter throughout the meal

Well, what can I say? From the minute we walked into this lovely old yacht, my grand daughter and I were made to feel very welcome. The staff couldn't have been kinder, more friendly or more helpful. The food was delicious, especially the prawn starter. I had the steak which was cooked to perfection with lovely chunky chips. My grand daughter had the sea bass and said it was very tasty. We hadn't intended to have a dessert, but we were so glad we weakened. The lemon tart was just that... tart... exactly as it should be, and the raspberry and white chocolate parfait was equally as tasty. All in all, we had a great time, enjoying the lovely food and watching the ever moving river outside. Do not worry if you can't get a window seat, the view is just as good in the middle of the restaurant. Our visit to The Yacht was just perfect. Thank you to everyone.

It took an hour to get our food . It was appalling. They were apologetic about the service but when the service is poor to start off with it put me in a miserable mood

The presentation of the food was wonderful. The fact that the chef walked round asking customers for feedback was a really nice touch. The service could not be faulted. One thing I hadn't really bargained on was the choppiness of the Thames at tidal change with a high wind. Consider this if you are at all liable to sea sickness (fortunately I'm not).

This was a gift, 2 course lunch and a glass of sparkling wine each. It was cold outside but a warm welcome and good food awaited us. Lovely views of the Thames wherever you sit. Some people were having afternoon tea and that looked good too. Yes would recommend this venue.
