Catering at The Ship of Adventures

"Great food, beautifully presented and well received by everyone" - Gillian Dandy, Client Earth

No meeting or event is complete without some delicious food. Whether it's a light lunch or a full buffet we can provide all of your catering needs from The Ship of Adventures' in-house cafe. All food and drink at the cafe is freshly made and prepared on site.

By choosing us to cater your event in the Ship of Adventures you are further supporting the Hackney Pirates and our educational workshops with young people.


To place an order or to discuss tailored menus please email or call 020 3327 1777. Please note that the majority of our catering is for our internal events, if you would like catering for a meeting or an event outside of The Ship of Adventures then please do give us a call and we'll see what we can do (delivery charges may apply).

We are a small team that works from a small kitchen so need to plan in advance as much as possible - please place orders at least 5 days in advance and let us know of any special dietary requirements. We will do our best to accommodate them.

All prices are per person and exclude VAT. 20% VAT will be added on to all orders.
