“Ecxellent Aftrnoon Tea River Cruise”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We have booked an afternoon tea River Cruise with some friends (around 10 of us) couple of weeks ago. What a lovely treat it was! We have been very lucky with the weather and enjoyed the cruise along the beautiful Thames in lovely sunshine. Everyone has a fantastic time. The boat is very spacious enough and has enough seats for everyone, there are also fantastic views if you prefer to seat outside on the deck. We were served a glass of Champaign on arrival and the scones and cakes served with the tea were out of this world. Sooo yummy. All the staff were a pleasure to deal with and they ensured that we all had a great time. Our lovely captain Jon came to see everyone once we stopped giving us information of the tour.
Fab food, great staff, fantastic river views, really reasonable prices for a great day out. I have already recommending to all my friends and one of them has booked at the end of June for his party. I can’t wait for another great party at the Fat Swan!

“90th birthday”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

We had a lovely time on The Fat Swan celebrating our Auntie's 90th Birthday Party. Not only did we have a delicous 3 course lunch but we enjoyed a cruise along the Thames in beautiful sunshine. The staff were very good and had provided everything we had asked for including a highchair. The skipper was very friendly and informative. He also turned his hand to photography so all the family could be in the pictures. We would certainly use them again.

“Best Boat Party on the Thames”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

We just had the best 4 hours spent on the River Thames.. We have hired other boats on the Thames but The Fat Swan is far superior to any we have been on and great value for money
It was the best party celebration we have had thanks for a great evening
