Ordering food at the mulberry

Was thinking last night that 38 boats (+more people) will be turning up to the Mulberry pub all at once wanting food and drink. Never been to this pub before so would it be worth us ordering the food the day before or in advance if we are on a tight schedule?

I'm asking as my wife and mum will be meeting us at the Mulberry and could organize the ordering of food in advance if that is any help to us?

dont know about anybody else, but tend to just snack on the boat as ribbing on a full belly doesnt work for me!

Up to individuals. I think a beer from the bar and butties brought along on the boat will be the most logical.

its funny, it is always said that alcohol and boats are a bad combination - impaired judgement, less likely to survive in cold water etc, and yet here on a site that constantly bangs on about lifejackets, and use of kill chords etc, we find that 'having a beer' is quite acceptable and doesnt raise any questions at all!

Go on then, I'll have a nibble...

Are you saying that in your opinion having a beer is 'bad' when out on the boat, or that the RIBnet community is two-faced, or both?

I agree with festa being in control of a boat is no different to a car .. Do not drink and drive ..!

yes in my opinion, it is bad practice and irresponsible, but hey ho, each to their own

Well I'm perfectly happy to have a beer; one beer of no more than 4% by volume, when out on the boat.

Many are, least ways I've not seen many stopping at the gazelle on the run home and not having a beer, or a red wine 😄🍻👍 all things in moderation
