Preferred Caterers

Spice Merchant Group is a preferred caterer for Hobbs of Henley, a local company who charter a fleet of hospitality boats on the Thames, from their base in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

Over recent years we have catered for passengers aboard their locally famed ‘New Orleans Paddle Steamer’, the most luxurious member of their fleet. We have catered for both private charters (weddings, corporate events etc.) and on our own special buffet evening cruises.

Our Indian buffet evenings are scheduled throughout the year.

Alternatively, we can cater for private charters such as birthdays, corporate events and weddings. The New Orleans paddle steamer is the perfect venue for an enjoyable, waterside experience.
