Welcome to the Allen Gardiner River Cruise Restaurant, offering a choice of breakfast, lunch, supper or dinner cruises for up to 12 passengers, this is an unforgettable experience that you will treasure forever.

Enjoy an enchanting cruise with scrumptious, freshly prepared food and drinks on the tranquil waters of the River Orwell whilst listening to the skipper’s fascinating commentary.

Cruising from Fox’s Marina, under the stunning Orwell Bridge and down towards the Port of Felixstowe and Harwich, the Allen Gardiner offers plenty of space on deck to enjoy the calm waters of the River Orwell during the summer months, as well as a cosy wood burner in the saloon for quieter, more serene winter trips.

We can accommodate special dietary requirements with prior notice. A fully stocked bar is always available, and there is a small but comprehensive wine list, including a fine selection of fine South African wines imported exclusively for the Allen Gardiner.

Operating all year round ( just NOT on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day) the Allen Gardiner is available either for an exclusive private charter or individuals may book independently sharing with other passengers. Please get in touch to discuss your exact requirements. 


  • BREAKFAST CRUISE   9.30 am – 11.30 am
