Bar Options

We have a variety of drink packages available to enable you to select the perfect accompaniment to your event and your pocket.

Listed below are the various options and packages we offer, together with our current bar prices.  As with all aspects of London and Thames Boat Company, we can offer bespoke packages including specialised wines.  Just give us a call or contact us via the contact page.

Onboard Accounts

To help your event run smoothly, why not choose an onboard account to ensure you and your guests have a great time.

You can discuss your specific requirements on booking, whether that be a full open bar, a full bar with restrictions; for example no shots or champagne, or an open bar of house wines, beers and soft drinks.  We are happy to tailor your account to your specifications.

There are flexible options of how to settle your bar account too, so maybe you would like to pre-pay a set limit behind the bar and once that has been met, the bar will operate on a cash/card basis. Your limit can always be increased during the event, with the balance paid at the end by card or cash.

Should you not wish to prepay, your entire bar account can be paid at the end of the event, or should you prefer, can be invoiced to you post event.  Please note that all accounts settled post event will incur a 10% processing fee.

If you do choose to place an amount behind the bar or set a limit, our onboard bar manager will ensure you are kept notified of how your guests are responding to this. This will allow you the flexibility and control to end the account, up the amount or just give you notice of how much your budgeted account has been used.

With any type of account bar you will be asked to sign a tally sheet at the end of the event and given a copy to take with you.  It is our policy to refund any unused Pre Event Bar Account amount.

Worried about everybody getting the same amount of drinks? – no problem, we can issue drinks vouchers with the value of each voucher chosen by you.
