Come aboard a beautiful Edwardian sailing barge, moored on Maldon’s picturesque Hythe Quay for a memorable tearoom experience.
These barges boast their distinctive red ochre sails, evoke an era long since past. Once the East Coasts traditional cargo vessel at the turn of the century the Thames Sailing Barge fleet numbered over 2,000, today only a handful of traditional Barges survive.
Included within this experience is an afternoon tea for two made with fresh ingredients supplied from Maldon high street including Buntings Butchers, Greens and Crusty Loaf. Their delicious cakes, scones and sandwiches are all cooked on board daily in the galley.
Your afternoon tea will include an individual pot of tea or cafetiere of coffee, a selection of fresh sandwiches, delicious scones with cream and jam and a choice of two cakes served on a China stand. You will also receive a 20cl bottle of Prosecco each to enjoy.
Please note that the Barge is stationary at all times.
