From Our Editors

The Yacht of London is a 1927 steamboat permanently moored at Temple Pier on Victoria Embankment. The venue is a short walk from Temple underground station and benefits from panoramic views of the Thames, Big Ben and the South Bank. The restored interior retains much of its period charm while sporting a host of modern amenities to meet the needs of contemporary socialites.

Four distinct areas are spread out across three decks: the top deck and terrace offers a full bar and a heated marquee fitted with a Bose PA system; the Stateroom boasts chesterfield sofas and a plasma screen TV; the cocktail lounge serves an array of innovative beverages amid art-deco furnishings. The restaurant is fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows, a clean white colour scheme and wooden flooring.

The Yacht London specialises in British classics with an international twist—the a la carte menu features dishes such as beef wellington served with chorizo-roasted potatoes, and medallions of local venison paired with white bean and smoked pancetta puree. The kitchen also offers a six-course fine-dining menu, a range of barbecue classics and a buffet, in addition to lighter bites like bowl food and canapés. Diners may also stop by for afternoon tea or a hearty roast on Sunday.Those planning a special occasion can hire the yacht in its entirety or opt for an individual area. The venue is equipped to host private dining, seminars, parties and other special occasions ranging from 15 to 250 guests. Weddings and civil ceremonies are held throughout the year and tailored to each individual couple’s requirements. The yacht holds a 3am events licence and is lit up by fairy lights in the evening.

Staff were very helpful and friendly. We both had chicken tarrine to start which was lovely apart from the side salad which was a bit brown on the edges, then for mains my husband had the pork belly and mash, which he enjoyed very much a good portion size for lunch and I had the fish and chips, also good size and tasty. As it was my husband's birthday they offered to do a birthday desert plate too, which was a lovely surprise for him. Unfortunately there wasn't many people there for lunch and they had a problem with the sound system, so it lacked atmosphere, but still enjoyed it.

Booked the two course lunch which consisted of a starter and a main course. The Yacht is situated on the Thames with views of Parliament and the London Eye. Upon arrival we were swiftly greeted by pleasant staff and offered any window table for two. We both chose the fish cakes for starters which were well cooked but for me could have had a little more seasoning. I opened for the sea bass but this was not available but was replaced by Hake which was beautiful. My Husband opted for the pork belly which was accompanied by mash potato. The drinks were a little on the dear side - £7.00 for a very small glass of Malbec wine. Service charge is added to any extras. The ambiance was lovely - especially as we went on a beautiful sunny day. We were not rush which made it more relaxing - well worth a visit.

Excellent food and lovely view of the river. My friend was seriously delayed on trains so we ate an hour later than booked. However, staff showed warmth and understanding which made this awkward situation much easier for me.
