Places to Eat

During your trip on Albion, you will probably require something to eat and drink. Here are a couple of places which provide good quality picnics.

Horning Galley

Those in the know will be wishing we were keeping quiet about these! And we certainly shouldn't mention the carrot cake, chocolate brownies, melt in your mouth sausage rolls, top notch jams and spreads, oils and relishes, pork pies and croissants.

Meanwhile everyone else is making the most of the Horning Galley's speciality picnics and bespoke hampers, made to order to suit the tastes - and budget - of individual customers. It's the easy answer to eating on-board; put in a call with specific requests or a simple 'mix of food please for the weekend for six' order and that's the catering sorted so less time is spent in your own galley and more time enjoying the water.
