Working with our partners at No.1 Folly Bridge we offer excellent catering aboard our vessels. Options range from cold buffets and afternoon tea to canapes and hot three course menus.
Cold buffet menus can be viewed here. Please contact us for details of three course menus which are available from £25 per person (excluding boat hire fee). Catering will be delivered directly to the vessel and set up before your arrival. Payment will be taken by Oxford River Cruises.
We also offer a comprehensive drinks selection. House wine, beer and soft drinks are available onboard all vessels and an extensive drinks menu is available for pre-order. Selections should be made in advance (sale or return basis for sealed bottles)
You are welcome to make your own catering arrangements but a corkage fee of £7 per bottle will apply if you wish to bring your own alcoholic drinks aboard.
The Mole waggled his toes from sheer happiness, spread his chest with a sigh of full contentment, and leaned back blissfully into the soft cushions. `What a day I'm having!' he said. 'Let us start at once!' 'Hold hard a minute, then!' said the Rat. He looped the painter through a ring in his landing-stage, climbed up into his hole above, and after a short interval reappeared staggering under a fat, wicker luncheon-basket. 'Shove that under your feet,' he observed to the Mole, as he passed it down into the boat. Then he untied the painter and took the sculls again. 'What's inside it?' asked the Mole, wriggling with curiosity. 'There's cold chicken inside it,' replied the Rat briefly; 'coldtonguecoldhamcoldbeefpickled gherkinssaladfrenchrollscresssandwich espottedmeatgingerbeerlemonade sodawater - ' 'O stop, stop,' cried the Mole in ecstacies: 'This is too much!'
