Peggy Jean, our lovingly restored former Jesus College Oxford barge, enjoys unparalleled views of the Thames, Richmond Bridge and Richmond Riverside.

A stunning water-top dining destination, the historic barge and sun trap pontoon combines quintessential Oxford College Boat race charm with relaxed and inspired Aussie beach club vibes. It makes an ideal location for a lazy weekend brunch with friends or a summer sunset dinner. On board there is an intimate bar and dining space perfect for a cosy evening.

The venue is home to twin Gozney clay ovens meaning a special menu of freshly baked pizzas, fresh calamari and day boat fish, sharing Tomahawk steaks - all cooked over fire, Aussie BBQ style.

We are dog friendly throughout the day and evening, and have comfy dog beds and specially-made dog biscuits available!


If your preferred date is not available when booking a table, please do join our waitlist as we open up significant additional tables each morning once we can confirm a dry and sunny forecast.

BEST FOR: water-top dining, sunset dining, intimate special occasions & those looking for a unique dining destination.
