First Class Service
Delivering sterling service is at the heart of what we do, and we often find that it is those little touches that keep our customers coming back time and time again. Upon arrival diners will enjoy the "red carpet treatment" where they will be greeted by our Dining Manager before being introduced to their personal waiter, who will endeavour to ensure that their every whim is catered for.

Local Suppliers
We are immensely proud of our home county of Staffordshire, from its impressive industrial history, to its captivating landscapes and, of course, its award-winning produce. The pride we have for our area is evident in our menus, which have been carefully designed to encompass our passion for seasonal and where possible locally sourced, quality ingredients.

We offer a full bar on board where you can you buy a range of drinks including cocktails or if you prefer you can pre-order your wine, beer or prosecco and this will be ready and waiting at your table on your arrival. Drinks are priced individually and not included in the ticket price.

We do not accept cancellations.
