The Life Aquatic

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of small businesses and is making it very challenging for businesses to survive. With the help of projects such as 'Pay It Forward', we can raise extra funds to help us survive this tough time. We hope that you find something to treat yourself or as a thoughtful (Christmas) gift.

Bridge over Troubled Waters

Tamesis Dock's revenue, like so many in the same boat, has decreased to her lowest levels in the past (and coming) months while trading costs have remained almost the same.   Many of our income streams including live music & events are no longer a viable option. 

We have created some special offers that has been possible thanks to the support of the Mayor of London's match funding campaign which we hope that you will enjoy. 

Through Crowdfunder, we can offer a range of offers for cash now on a promise to redeem these at a later date.

The Boat that Rocks

Tamesis is a loveable boat located near Lambeth Bridge offering incredible views of the Houses of Parliament, London Eye & Battersea Power Station. We have generous indoor & outdoor space offering a year round venue with a relaxed, fun & friendly personality. We have been established as one of London's favourite floating live music & jazz venues having hosted bands such as Bastille, Local Natives & Deap Valley.   

We are incredibly touched to have such a loyal customer base with many returning friends, locals & regulars.

We have recently developed a pizza kitchen alongside our lovely & classically trained Italian pizza chef. We now make fresh, long-fermented, hand-stretched pizzas, offering a wide range of vegan, vegetarian, calzones, cauliflower crust and classics. We have made these central to many of our rewards. We hope that you will enjoy them.

With your support we look forward to keep sailing in the right direction and welcoming all of our wonderful guests aboard for decades to come.  As a huge thank you we would love to offer you some great discounts and waves of gratitude.

Finding Tamesis

Tamesis was adopted in the summer of 2008, shortly before the start of the 2008 recession, by brother & sister siblings. Having had no prior hospitality experience but having been involved in building a boat, they found Tamesis in a rundown state and believed that they could give her some love and attention. Following years of hard work and dedication by the team that worked (& still works) with her, she was given a slow but gradual lease of life and during this time gained the support and love of many that visited her.  Her reputation over the years has spread by word of mouth and through those that have supported her in their blogs & reviews.   

Located just off the beaten path and away from the hustle and bustle, she welcomes those that make a bit of an effort to visit her. Her unique & rugged charms attracts a very loyal customer base for which we are very grateful.

The Rime of the (not so) Ancient Tamesis! 

A brother and sister team did they make
Back when it started in 2008
She wanted a café
He’d built a boat
Then they decided to make it float

They found Tamesis Dock, back then the English Maid
Anchor down and starting to fade
But they knew with a little love and affection
The team could bring her back to life and give her some well needed attention

Months went by and locals knew
Of this loveable little boat that was green, yellow & blue
Slowly word spread and years went by
And Tamesis’ reputation soon started to fly

Through all the hard work and dedication of her team
She has become their realised dream
She’s a little bit rugged and a little bit quirky
But she’s got personality & is mighty perky

Live music & events, parties galore
Banjo’s and ukulele's who could ask for more
To all of you who has become part of her story
She will always be grateful and a shadow in all of your glory

Sailing through the seasons the tides sometimes get high
And through tough waters she must ply
These waves at the moment are unusually dry
But with a little help & support we hope that once again she will fly

Thank you for your support!
