Perhaps our expectations aren't so picky. Living in cornwall we have seen bad food,bad service and exorbitant prices. Having decided just to have a few days away we thought we would go to Stratford as never been there, walking down to the basin saw this restaurant and thought, why not it certainly different, a narrow boat taking us on a...

Having gone to Stratford with the intention of having a nice evening meal and a boat trip it seemed a nice idea to join the two on the countess of Evesham, we booked the night before and as it was September Monday night we had no trouble getting a table. it only holds about 50 people though so I don't...

A business colleague had recommended this delightful restaurant, and we had a most enjoyable evening on Wednesday 10th September. We were welcomed aboard and shown to our table where drinks were served. The cruise lasts approx 3 hours in which time a 3 course meal was served. The food was superbly served considering the limitations of a narrow boat galley.... More

Firstly, it's completely understandable that the menu is limited. After all the cooking is taking place at the back of a double-wide barge. The interior decor is very cosy and clean, although as the evening wore on and we went further up-river insects were coming in through the windows which, I suppose, is also to be expected. The boat-ride itself... More

After becoming regular visitors to Stratford over many years (and after having eaten in most of the restaurants around the town), we’d noticed but never been on board the Countess of Evesham – we decided (after reading the mostly favourable reviews) that we should try out the evening dinner cruise. Despite the limited menu options and the fairly ordinary food... More

This restaurant is not only novel but the food, service and overall experience is excellent. My only gripe is £1.50 for a glass of water, that was a bit steep, Otherwise I cannot fault this restaurant cruiser in any way...nice one, well done to the owners and staff.

We celebrated my birthday aboard the countess of Evesham. Having experienced a similar cruise at Brindley Place Birmingham my expectations were a little hazey, was I pleasantly surprised! The atmosphere on board was delightful - crisp white linen, wood panelling. A very warm welcome from all the staff and helpful with me as was on crutches. This is a oversize... More

Me and my boyfriend dined with the luxury restaurant cruiser last night and highly enjoyed it. The reason for giving it only 4 stars however is due to the food. We felt you paid £30.50 not for the three courses but mostly for the atmosphere and river cruise itself. To be a five star the food just had to be... More

After a slow start(15mins to get first drink)it was a most relaxing evening with the staff working very hard to serve your needs.

Given this is a oversize narrow boat the menu is restricted in choice but that is to be expected. The space between table is a little restricted but the service is good,the food well cooked and there is a good selection of beers wines etc. We have used this restaurant before so we knew what to expect.
