Discover what's on offer inside our sumptuous new 2018 menus
With the knowledge that the quality of food and drink at any event can make or break guests' experience, we take immense pride in what we offer to charterers and their guests aboard our fleet.
It's why we put so much thought into creating truly memorable menus in conjunction with our superb award-winning catering partners, Food by Dish. As we welcome in spring and with the summer season on the horizon, we are absolutely thrilled to share with you our wonderful new menus for 2018.
Featuring a wide range of delicious options perfect for any occasion on the River Thames, from delectable canapés to signature dinners and everything in between, there's a host of irresistible options for you to explore.
What's new in the 2018 menus?
2017 saw a rise in the popularity of informal dining and we've further embraced this with our 2018 offering. Our Food Concept Bars are perfect for serving your guests tasty little morsels - why not pair the Mexican Taco Station with margaritas and a mariachi band for your own fiesta? Or if you prefer more variety, the Street Food Markets are an ideal style of buffet to please everyone in your party.
We've expanded our pre-dinner options to include the Well Dressed Bar as well as sips of soup served in shot glasses and passed canapé style. Dessert canapés were more popular than ever last year and we've added mini churros and white chocolate and raspberry lollipops to the menu - a firm favourite in the TLC office!
Of course, if your guests prefer the tradition of a seated meal our Classic and Signature dining menus have also been updated with some fresh new ideas including soused mackerel fillet, lightly spiced sea bream and elderflower panna cotta.
Something that our chefs took into consideration when planning this year's menus was how mindful our guests are becoming about what they eat. We've tried to reflect this by the inclusion of more vegan dishes throughout the menu selection, and will of course be able to accommodate other dietary requirements with prior notice.

Can I create my own bespoke menu?
Our head chef Nicola boasts a wealth of knowledge and experience and has designed these elegant and innovative menus to work aboard any of our vessels. However, we understand that every event is unique, so if you have a particular style of food in mind we would be delighted to discuss this with you and create a suitable bespoke menu.
How can I experience the new menus?
The new menus can be enjoyed on any charter with us on the River Thames. Our highly experienced and friendly Events Management Team are ready and waiting to help you plan your perfect event in the heart of London, with the greatest care and attention from enquiry all the way through to event day.
We welcome you to view our fleet at our private pier overlooking the iconic Tower Bridge, so you can truly understand what luxury awaits you on the river, while menu tastings can be arranged as part of the booking process.
We're certain you'll be delighted with what the Thames' tastiest partnership has to offer, so ensure you take a look at the menus and contact us about chartering a TLC vessel for your next event.
It's wonderful on water. We look forward to welcoming you on board!
