quick snacks when you're on the go

A phased reopening of our food, drink and retail options on some of our vessels has begun. 

We are providing a selection of hot snacks, soups and sandwiches as well as hot and cold drinks on a number of our routes. From Monday, 9 November 2020, we'll increase the hot food options available on some of our vessels. You'll find more details in the table below.

Our menu will be more limited than in 'normal' circumstances while we continue to manage the health and safety mitigations in place to help keep our passengers, crew and the islands we serve safe.

Helping to keep our team and customers safe

Things are still a little different. Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our customers and our teams.

To help create a safe experience for everyone, we need your assistance.

  • If you are enjoying our food and drink on board, please remember to clear any left-over food and/or packaging into the appropriate bins before you vacate your table.

  • We have temporarily re-introduced some single use items like disposable cups, sauce sachets, milk portions and cutlery. This is on a temporary basis and is one of the mitigations we have needed to implement to reduce the number of common touch items and in turn, the spread of Covid-19. Where possible, we've used compostable and recyclable options, but not all of them can be recycled. So, please do help us to maximise recycling and composting opportunities by following the signage guiding you on what bins to use for particular items.

  • Remember to follow the physical distancing guidelines and signage when you travel with us, including in our food and drink and retail areas.

  • Unless exempt, face coverings are required inside our food and drink and retail areas when choosing and paying for purchases. You can remove these as soon as you've sat down to eat / drink, before replacing them as soon as you've finished. Find out more about wearing face coverings in our retail areas.
