          Welcome to the Lady Florence, the River Cruise Restaurant offering Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper Cruises for a maximum of twelve passengers on the Rivers Alde and Ore from Orford, regardless of tides.

          Sailing all year round, with a cosy coal fire in winter, the Lady Florence River Cruise Restaurant is designed to provide a different and exciting dining experience. There is ample space, both out on deck and in the elegant dining saloon. As the vessel cruises the calm waters of the Rivers Alde and Ore, we serve freshly-prepared fine foods and drink.

          From the quiet serenity of winter to the bustling activity of summer, the rivers offer outstanding scenery to accompany your meal. Every cruise includes an informative commentary on both the intriguing history that made this area, and the wildlife which now inhabits it, so fascinating and precious.
