Cream tea cruise

Bought as a present for a visit to a lace several miles away so we changed it for the canal cruise. This was not easy but the staff were very helpful and guided me through want I had to do. Enjoyed the cruise and the beautiful food and the staff were very pleasant. A great gift.

Very Enjoyable

Both my partner and I have quite busy lifestyles, so to take a few hours off to enjoy the pleasant scenery, excellent food and competent/professional staff was just what the doctor ordered. The time on board seemed to fly past, but at no point did we feel rushed. The staff were not only efficient but also very polite and welcoming, and nothing was any trouble for them. I will definitely be booking again.

Pleasant staff, great food, very tranquil.

I bought this as a gift for my mother who enjoys narrow boats; we went in July. Booking was fairly straightforward. She was initially disappointed to see that the boat was entirely enclosed so she would not be able to go 'outside' during the cruise; furthermore, the windows opened by slanting at the top rather than opening wide or sliding across, so there was no real breeze or outdoor view. However, the boat was clean and nicely furnished with cosy table settings and attractive details. We were placed at the front of the boat, which meant we had a good view of where we were going, although we did have to turn sideways to see this, and the seats were lower than the rest, meaning we had to strain a little to see properly. We found some cushions to sit on which helped to improve this a bit. The food was very impressive, a real highlight, from the very well presented plate of finger sandwiches, quiche etc. to the delightfully mismatched teaset and the cakes. Best of all was a thoroughly delicious and still-warm scone - absolute heaven. The staff were very pleasant, polite, friendly and very accommodating. The music (although too loud for my mum's tastes) also struck just the right note in ensuring that the entire experience was very tranquil and relaxing.
