Punting Tours with a Table

It’s a tricky thing, choosing food that everyone likes, so keep your group happy on our punting with table tour. This offers the perfect solution – courier order or bring your own takeout and eat in comfort on our award-winning tour!

Our award-winning punting tour is an iconic Cambridge experience and the perfect way to enjoy some tradition. Better yet when you add a specially designed table for comfortable dining and the ability to take your preferred foods and drinks for the ride.

On arrival, you’ll find your punt has an exclusively designed table ready for you to unwrap your dishes and serve your drinks. Pick up or courier order nibbles and drinks from your favourite restaurants, be it sushi, pizza, cream teas, cakes, beer, wine, coffee, anything you can think of really! 

Our unique punting tour includes a table fitted to make eating and drinking on a boat that much better, and in summer you’ll find it’s nearly the only way to be assured a table in Cambridge city centre!

Relax and enjoy the scenery with your partner as your expert chauffeur punts you along the College Backs, entertaining you with a 45 minute accredited tour.

Your boat will be dressed with comfortable cushions and your boat and guide will be waiting for you and ready to go at the time that you choose.



Table Punting Information

There are many takeout restaurants and cafés around Cambridge Quayside for you to choose food from, but if you’re keen on something from further afield you can arrange for delivery to the Rutherford’s Desk on Quayside ready for your tour.

Our 45 minute table tours are bookable up to 24 hours in advance. Your booking includes the set up of the punt. This option is only available for up to 6 passengers.

Check in with our team at our Jesus Green Moorings just 2 minutes along the boardwalk from the Quayside. For last minute bookings please contact us on 01223 322200 and we’ll do our best to organise a boat for you.

Both our boats and our employees will be dressed for the weather on the day. If it’s sunny, your guide will be wearing a waistcoat. Alternatively, at colder times of the year, your guide will wear a professional coat and your boat will be equipped with umbrellas.

What to do if you’re running late? Your private booking will be held for you for 5 minutes, after this point it wouldn’t be possible to go on the tour as this would mean missing our later bookings, affecting other customers. Please call us the moment you know of any delays to your schedule and we’ll try to organise things to accommodate you.
