Greggs’ first shop on water follows the successful launch of the popular food-on-the-go brand at Wightlink’s Portsmouth Gunwharf car ferry terminal in 2014.

Wightlink’s Cabin Services & Brands Manager, Nicky Mihell said:

“We are delighted to announce the arrival of Greggs on our flagship ferry and we are sure its high quality freshly-baked treats, together with tasty sandwiches made on the premises, will be very popular with our customers. This great British brand will offer customers even more choice on their journeys.”

Martin Kibler, Greggs’ Business Development and Property Director, said:

“We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with Wightlink by opening the first Greggs shop on water. They are an excellent operator and this will make Greggs even more accessible to both existing and new customers as they travel.”

The menu also features Greggs’ new Balanced Choice range and hand-finished sweet treats, plus a wide selection of cold and hot drinks, including freshly-ground 100% Fairtrade coffee.
