The Yacht London Review

The Yacht London is a permanently moored boat restaurant on the London river thames. It is literally across the road from Temple underground station.

We first came to The Yacht London some years ago during my husbands birthday party. We had a meal with few of our friends and I always knew we would comeback. 

With so many restaurants to choose from in London, I must say I stumbled across The Yacht London by chance. My husband’s then office was in Embarkment, which is just few minute walk from temple and I was looking for something edgy, fun and yet classy. I think we had also just gotten back from a cruise to Amsterdam that left quite an impression on us, we wanted to taste that dining on a ship once again. It seemed like the perfect place.


on arrival, we were welcomed by a friendly waiter who asked us to choose where we wanted to seat ( we arrived early and they were just opening up so there was plenty of tables to choose from), of course we chose the seat with the best view. Tables on the right side of the glassed windows have London views and must of the iconic landmark like the London eye, Big Ben and the shad.

 

The boat rocked while we were eating, which was amazing because you would think you were actually on a moving boat. Not too cool if you are prone to being sea sick.

The food was mostly delicious. The started came quite quickly (a plus for hungry pregnant mamas) with a free refillable glass of still water. 


The mains was made to perfection. We both had steak which came with salad and chunky chips. It was filling and my serloin was well complimented by peppercorn sauce. 

The other half didn’t want desserts, I wanted to try one so I ordered what I call strawberry, cream and biscotti (it probably had a very fancy name that I can’t remember). It was served in a large glass bow. Very well decorated I felt guilty sticking my spoon in it to eat it thereby destroying the masterpiece. He saw it and asked for an extra spoon and dug right in. 


After two glasses of lemonade (which again had a very fancy name), couple with the fact that my unborn baby probably has my bladder in his hand, I had to use the loo before going. 

I always love cute toilet selfies but what was even more amazing at this restaurant was the hallway to the toilet, which is located in the basement of the ship. 


It was the stained glass windows that first caught my eyes. Then the beautiful, simple but elegant chandelier. 

The restaurant was lovely. It’s not cheap to eat here but it’s affordable and I will definitely comeback again. Highly recommend.

Ad: A Perfect Day in a London Manor House


We all know life in London can be pretty hectic. Over cramped tubes, congestion, people briskly walking past you with their heads buried in their phones. Life in London is no doubt on the fast lane. London is also an expensive city, the weather is often horrible and we Londoners moan a lot. Regardless of all these 21st century 1st world problems, there is no place like London and we won’t have it any other way. It has become a home to us. We love its diversity, there is always something to see and do, beautiful places to go and unwind. There are lots of secret beautiful hide outs even though they may not draw as much crowd as the famous London eye or the Big Ben, nor are they likely to be on any tourist itineraries of “London top attractions To See Before You Leave” but, you will be amazed by the charms of some these (not so) secret hide outs. 

One of such places we often retreat to is the beautiful scenic manor house in North London, Forty Hall. We go there often to unwind for the day. This is my favourite sport to sit back and relax from all the hustle and bustle of central London life. The Grade 1 Listed Jacobean Manor House, nestled in leafy Enfield and set amidst an idyllic landscape, Forty Hall Estate is home to one of the oldest Cedar of Lebanon trees in England.

While you can have a picnic on the grass or go into the small cafe on the inside for some tea and cake, the kids can feed the duck (no bread) or ride their bikes around. hunt for bugs in the walled garden. The beauty does not just stop outdoors, indoors are fine architecture and stunning period rooms that will sure take your breath away.

This is definitely one of our top favourite places to go and unwind, and thanks to Jord Watches for reminding us to take time out to enjoy the little pleasures of living in such a beautiful city.
