Lovely relaxing cruise with Sunday lunch

A few reviews have been quite harsh so I didn't know what to expect. Beautiful sunny day, canal smooth. Industrial architecture old and interesting -maybe a bit of commentary would be added value. I found all the staff were friendly and efficient. One of our party couldn't decide on which... read more

We were given this experience as a gift from our son. Parking is available nearby in a multi-storey carpark about 100 yds from the waterside. The carpark was a little expensive just short of £10 for the time we were there, but you can pay by credit card which made things easier. Jill (owner) was a very pleasant host from... More

As an alternative to Valentines Day the Friday before hand was wonderful, excellent food, drink and service. Jill and the staff did a wondeful job of making our trip really enjoyable. Next meal is already booked and looking forward to my Grandson "sailing" for the first time.

On my birthday, together with 10 friends, we were sat at the captain's table and the verdict is NO, don't ruin your party by thinking that Away2dine is a good idea. Reasons: far from enough room at the captain's table and the service was... rude, plain rude. On my birthday! I have been a year before in couple format and... More

Like all passengers, we were canal side before the boat cruised into view, showing welcoming tables already set and with enticing canapés already in place.... More
