We celebrated our wedding anniversary with Sunday lunch a boat trip. The food is cooked freshly on the boat and is of a good quality as is the house wine that I sampled. Boat holds around 26 people so you have to book as it is very popular. All 3 courses were of very good quality especially considering what must... More

We received a warm welcome on this evening trip from the staff and drinks were served promptly though odd not to get ice and lemon with gin and tonic!. Food was well presented, good portion sizes and nicely cooked.Cheese course was a bit mean with very slim slices of cheese served but perhaps they thought we were all full.A commentary... More

We enjoyed a five course meal, a party of four, on a Thursday evening. The tables were laid beautifully and staff well presented. The food was amazing, served at the correct temperature and was delicious, my only nit pick, a bit more on the cheese and cracker board when sharing between two. Excellent wine selection, with tap water and soft... More

We had this as a gift experience and didn't look up previous reviews, however, having now read the first few we can only agree-ish. Main areas to improve are the lack of info on where you are passing, there must be some interesting history to this ancient area and also the lack of personality of the staff. Food average in...

I was really looking forward to this experience- whiling away a lovely evening enoying a 5 course meal on the canals of Birmingham. I was however disappointed. The food was, for the most part, really nicely cooked and presented and i enjoyed it (along with a bottle or 2 of wine- also went down a treat.) However, there were some... More

Myself and a group of friends visited Birmingham to celebrate a friend's special birthday. I was looking forward to being looked after with a bit of luxury as had been advertised. Unfortunately the idea of not being able to to enough to help ones customers hadn't quite hit this company. We had agreed to decorate the boat for the special... More

Dined here on a Saturday night in July - I was really looking forward to it. I had to phone for some information beforehand and the lady I spoke to on the phone was extremely unhelpful and spoke to me like I was a problem! I found the attitude of the skipper quite rude and abrupt, everything seemed to be... More

A novel way to dine cruising the canals of Birmingham for over 3 hours. The service was tremendous with the owner herself serving up the delightful food and giving information and interesting facts about out journey throughout the night. The salmon & pawn salad starter was fresh and plentiful followed by chicken breast stuffed with peppers for a hearty main... More

We took two friends on the evening dinner cruise. Despite the limited space on a narrow boat, the dining area layout is very good and our friends said they had not expected anything quite like this. Unfortunately, the boat was less than half full and it did not have the same atmosphere as when we previously did this cruise and... More

Sunday Lunch, on a Barge in the middle of Birmingham. I thought it would be novelty over quality. But I was wrong. The food was very good, the service was excellent and company was amusing, the latter being pot luck but the couple from Sheffield provided great entertainment. The journey around the Birmingham is a great advert for Birmingham. We... More
