Overview

Turn back the clock and enjoy a great day out on a vintage sailing barge.

You and your partner will have a relaxing day out on this historic vessel, with the emphasis being on enjoying the scenery and the thrill of seeing these large vessels under sail. You will also have the opportunity to become involved in hoisting sails and steering if you wish. Time spent at the controls will depend on the skipper, weather, number of passengers and individual enthusiasm.

A light lunch is included with this experience which is traditionally a cheese and ham ploughman’s with a delicious dessert. Eat and enjoy your lunch whilst looking out from this stunning barge. Please note the type of food available may vary depending on the time of year.

This trip was a 70th birthday present. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The lunch on the barge was amazing. It was a ploughmans but the ham and cheese were delicious. Great quality with salad, pickles, chutneys and bread. Then fruit crumble with fresh cream for desert. Marvellous to say it was all freshly made on a barge. Thank you ladies. Would definitely recommend this trip.

This was bought for me as a 50th birthday present. I decided to take my mother in law with me when she was down from Scotland visiting. We had a lovely afternoon. The food was fresh and tasty and the service excellent. Staff were very friendly and happy to answer questions about the boat and business etc. The view was great too. Well worth a visit not just for afternoon tea but lunch as well.

We were given a voucher for afternoon tea and chose to go on a maldon barge in Maldon Quay. We were greeted by very friendly staff and the most wonderful array of food to eat. Really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this to all.

I was given this tea as a present from my son and daughter in law in December so it was doubly wonderful to claim the experience in June of this year. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience as we were able to sail up the estuary on a beautifully sunny day
