I have no hesitation in recommending The Yacht London to host an event. I had searched endlessly for a suitable venue to hold my Studio 54 inspired 50th birthday party on a Saturday night in Central London with guests coming from far afield. (Yes, a hideous prospect!) I wanted somewhere special so I was delighted that I was able to... More

We went there booking in advance with a Groupon Offer. We asked for the Sunday Roast which was amazing! The waiter, Ian, really friendly and welcoming - the food arrived immediately and he even suggested us a good selection of cocktails. We will definitely go back!

Once again, a first class lunch, from start to finish. The staff are really lovely - friendly, helpful, attentive - and then there is the delicious, hot, well presented food. We had a fixed menu, but there was plenty of choice and our group of four were all very happy. Lovely yacht, with huge glass windows and tables all around... More

We chose the venue for our colleague who is leaving the organisation, for its great location on the Thames. The Yacht London is probably one among the fantastic restaurants I have come across in London. The Hospitality in the restaurant was superb with the Manager (Radek) and staff being extremely courteous. We were served with some mouth-watering snacks and delicious... More

We gathered at the Yacht, on Saturday night as final FINAL send-off for a colleague who just keeps organizing various sorts of leaving lunches and dinners. Upon entering the boat, the level of service is on an extremely different level. The yacht manager Radek, greeted us with great enthusiasm and the same ethos was evident from the other members of...

Top ambiance top service, excellent food. This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been in London and as regards its famous risotto it is the best by far. Great wine list, and staff members were very knowledgeable and courteous. The manager (Radek) took time to chat with us upon leaving again ensuring we had had a nice... More

Description
Moored on the Thames close to the city's most famous landmarks, The Yacht London has earned its exclusive status as 'Mayfair of the river'. Crisp cosmopolitan design features expanses of brushed silver, whilst glass surroundings offer uninterrupted views across the water. The Yacht, originally the St Katharine, 130ft in length with a 26ft beam, was commissioned by the Port of London Authority in 1927 from Philip and Son Ltd of Dartmouth for the princely sum of £21,512. She was employed on survey and inspection work until the outbreak of war in 1939 when she was taken over by the Admiralty. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II visited the Yacht in 1949 and then again 10 years later. Sir Winston Churchill smoked one of his famous cigars of the stern of the top deck, the site of our new Martell Cigar Lounge. In 1971 the St Katharine was sold to Robins (Marine) Ltd to be used as a floating restaurant and she has now been carefully restored in close consultation with English Heritage and PLA Archivists to bring her back to her former glory, retaining many original features of the Art Deco era with a twist of contemporary design.
