Hire a Self-Drive Boat


The Leatherne Bottel is on a beautiful, unspoilt stretch of the river Thames with wonderful views and wildlife all around.

There is plenty of river to explore as this is the longest reach of the Thames with six and a half miles to Wallingford Lock from where we are just upriver from Cleeve Lock.

Why not make your experience at Rossini extra special with an hour or two on the river before or after your meal?

Our self-drive electric boat ‘Mudlark’ seats up to 8 people and is available to hire from £55 per hour. Dogs are welcome on board.

Please call us on 01491 872667 or email to book boat hire. Priority is given to diners.





Charter a Skippered Boat


If you prefer the luxury of a larger skippered boat our friends at Vintage Days Out would be happy to pick you up at Rossini at the Leatherne Bottel.

A chartered cruise for up to eight people can be arranged on Richard’s beautiful vintage boat ‘Lollapalooza’ before or after your meal.

Please call Richard on 01491 200734 or email to arrange.



Moor Overnight

We offer complimentary daytime and overnight mooring if you are dining with us.  Please be sure to book ahead as it does get busy in the summer months especially.

To book mooring please call 01491 872667 or email with your contact details and the length of your boat.
