Brunch on the Barge

Close to the heart of Oxford, on the banks of the River Thames, lies De Vere Oxford Thames, with a history dating back to the Middle Ages. Making the most of its riverside setting, the property offers delegates the chance to take to the water on a Victorian barge.

The Saint John’s College Barge is an unusual yet magical setting for any event, so it’s no wonder a client of ours recently chose to end their nationwide road trip with brunch aboard. The barge is ideal for small lunches or pre-dinner drinks reception, suitable for up to 30 guests, this intimate, historic barge offers a unique twist to any meeting or event.

When it comes to food, our chefs have created a selection of menus inspired by locally-sourced seasonal produce – or we can work with you to tailor-make a menu to compliment your event.
