My wife and I like a river dinner cruise and were really looking forward to this on so that we could see the sites of Birmingham from the canal. There were some positive things, but these were let down by some of the shortcomings. Positives: 1) the food was nice enough...not spectacular 2) the boat itself was nicely done out... More

Went as a group of 10 and sat in tables of 2. Conversion and wine flowed and the staff were very friendly. The food was lovely and we felt very reasonably priced. The only shame was at this time of year we couldn't see much outside as it was dark. We all said we would come back again in the... More

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...
