We launched our Cheese and Wine sunset cruises in 2020, of all years! Some of the things that we enjoy: Cheese, Wine, Cruising and relaxing by the water with the sunshine on your back– so we thought we’d do these cruises again this year!

Why not join us, treat yourself or someone special….

The ticket price of £40.00 per person includes a 2-hour Cruise (plus extra time for boarding / disembark), a glass of wine on arrival, a selection of local cheeses / savoury nibbles and a local Classical guitarist, ‘Steve Bean’ playing on board.

The event will be limited to over 18s only and the Rutland Belle will be providing soft drinks, free of charge to all nominated drivers (OJ, Coke, Orange Fanta, Lemonade).

Bespoke Wine Menus will be available on the tables to order your drinks during the cruise, as our bartender and crew serve your table all evening. Individual cheese boards and a selection of crackers will be provided per person.

Don’t worry if wine isn’t your favourite tipple, we also have the licensed bar available for the sale of the usual drinks: beer, gin and other spirits as well as 0% alcohol beer and wine.

The event is likely to prove very popular so book early to avoid disappointment.
