    A great afternoon tea experience for a special occasion. Sandwiches, savoury tart, scones jam & cream, and lovely delicate cakes left us all very fulfilled. Staff were very attentive & friendly. The setting is a bonus with all the activity on the river. In all a very pleasant experience, thank you.

    Booked afternoon tea, 3pm to 5pm slot. At 4.20pm the waitress asked if we had finished. At 4.30 pm the manager asked if we could leave as a party of 100 were arriving for dinner. We hadn’t finished so left cakes uneaten. I had asked for plain sandwiches due to a dietary issue but didn’t get any.

    Had a lovely meal at the Yacht. The male staff were very friendly (including the guy who took our orders and the guy who took our plates). However, the girl at the bar was very cold and quite rude really. Furthermore, our coats were FREEZING when we got them back - not good for a cold winter night! It was like they put them weird. The food was fantastic and so were the drinks! Had a lovely evening overall.

    A warm welcome and very friendly and efficient service. An interesting and (nearly!) unique setting, with good views along and across the Thames and watching the river cruise boats passing by. However the food wasn't quite up to the expected standard - the clam chowder comprised almost entirely of potatoes and the rabbit roulade was very good but rather overdone (as was the accompanying leek, the outside of which was like parchment paper). The presenttion of the sea bass could be greatly improved. A shame that the food rather let the side down as the people were very nice and I would have otherwise liked to have been able to recommend it widely. .

    Sat by the window with full view of South Bank. Attentive staff and lovely evening meal for four. Always worth going to The Yacht.
