If you are looking for a small boat to hire on the Thames then look no further. We spent a wonderful evening on the beautiful Fringilla; it was a last minute booking due to a rare glimpse of English sunshine and our last minute requests were dealt with wonderfully by Steve. We spent most of the evening sipping champagne on the open back deck taking in the fantastic views - you really cannot beat it. Would highly recommend.

Thank Lara B

We had a wonderful time last night on board Fringilla and I cannot recommend this company enough! We were a small group of ladies looking for something a bit more special for a get together with drinks and nibbles and this was just perfect. The setting was just amazing cruising by the magnificent houses of the rich and famous in Bray with the very knowledgeable Captain, Steve. The sun was shining and we made the most of the wonderful open area at the rear of the boat with a jug of Pimm's! After a fantastic 2 hour trip we disembarked at Boulters Lock Riverside Bar for a final cocktail and to await the cabs. "Ladies that do lunch" .. eat your heart out - this really is the way forward to end a week in the office! Steve, yet again you and your beautiful boat exceeded expectations and for the 2 hours we were with you, we were the ones that felt like celebs. Thank you once again for a terrific evening and we look forward to the next one! :) Highly recommended - so much so we may do a 4 hour trip next!

Monkey Island recommended Fringilla to us as an addition to our wedding reception. We took their advice and were delighted with the service. Larus arrived as we finished our meal and took groups of our guests for 15/20min round trips on the river, which we received great feedback on. The captain was even kind enough to stay a little later that booked so that the last group of guests didn't miss out on their boat ride, even though the daylight had pretty much disappeared. Thanks Fringilla for providing a brilliant extra to our wedding day

We had 2 wonderful days in the summer, being driven up and down The Thames from Oakley Court in Bray, by 3 different members of the fun, knowledgeable, understanding and tolerant family who own and run the 3 superb, comfortable, elegant boats.
On first occasion we were 12 in Sula and sailed to Maidenhead and back, past glorious homes and under Brunnel's red brick arch bridge, holding the record of being the widest span of its kind.
On the second occasion, we went the opposite direction, upstream to Windsor Castle and back. There were 19 of us between 2 boats, Sula and Fringilla and we could swop around, as we wished at the locks we passed through.
Excellent facilities to lay out our food and drink, and to enjoy them, inside or out in the deck.
Even able to sit up front and dangle one's legs overboard.
Highly recommended to all!

The connection between Oakley Court and Fringilla boats worked brilliantly for us from the initial contact, to the river trip on the day. Steve Harris of Fringilla was extremely helpful to accommodate the celebration that we wanted on the boat. We had a mixed group of 9 with a little 'un (2) up to the birthday girl at 60. The boat arrived at the hotel dock 30 mins before planned trip. The boat itself has obviously been lovingly cared for and all aspects exceeded my expectations. We were all able to stand outside and enjoy the views in the knowledge that if it rained we could easily pile into the lounge. Steve was courteous and really friendly handling the boat through the locks and pointing out interesting sights and facts. Everything just went so smoothly.... Thanks Steve.
