Allen Gardiner River Cruise Restaurant

Built in Miami in 1942 as a South African Air Force air-sea rescue launch, the Allen Gardiner has the character of a fine wooden ship. Undergoing a rebuild in 2011, she was then transported from Durban in South Africa over to Ipswich. With space to accommodate 12 dining passengers, the Allen Gardiner cruises from Ipswich along the River Orwell towards the Port of Felixstowe. For parties over 12 the boat remains moored.

Enjoy a 3 course brunch on a cruise departing at 9:30am to 11:30am all year round. The lunch cruise runs from 12 noon to 3pm, the sunset supper cruise runs from 4pm to 7pm, and the candlelit dinner cruise runs from 7:30pm to 10:30pm all year round. 

Sister to the Lady Florence at Orford, the Allen Gardiner is also available for private charter.
