Kaskelot is a three-masted barque and one of the largest remaining wooden ships in commission

Festive Dining

Festive Dining Experiences aboard Tall Ship Kaskelot, Lloyd’s Amphitheatre, Central Bristol.


Dates now available from mid November 2017 through to January 2018.

Three-masted barque Kaskelot will be opening her hatches this winter for truly unforgettable festive dining experiences, in collaboration with Clandesdiner.

Start your evening with a glass of bubbles- explore the deck and admire the rigging. Members of the ship’s crew will be on-hand to answer any questions you may have about this gorgeous vessel.

Then descend into Kaskelot’s beautiful and spacious cargo hold to dine, where the impressive oak structure of the ship forms an atmospheric backdrop to your festivities. Various menu options are available, with all food freshly prepared on board by the renowned chef behind Bristol’s Clandesdiner secret supper club.

Sample menus- these should give you a flavour of what’s on offer, but please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your requirements and preferences. We pride ourselves in being able to offer a truly bespoke dining experience, and can build a menu to suit you. We endeavour to cater for all dietary requirements, and allergen information is available on request.

Kaskelot is a traditional wooden sailing ship, and stairways are fairly steep. While we will have crew on hand to assist we would urge your guests to wear sensible shoes. No stilettoes!

Parking is available in Millennium Square car park, and Kaskelot is only a short walk away from the bus stops near @Bristol, the Hippodrome and College Green.

Payment Details: We require a non-refundable deposit of £700 at the point of booking to secure the ship for your chosen date, with the remainder to be paid no later than 2 days prior to the event once numbers and requirements have been confirmed. We can take payment over the phone or online via an emailed invoice link.

If you are interested in dining on board on an individual basis, do get in touch. We are looking at hosting some open evenings too.
