A fabulous evening cruise with a perfectly cooked and presented 3-course roast dinner - a truly wonderful way to spend an evening with someone you love. So glad my daughter gave me a voucher and so delighted that Away2dine was such a perfect date for my husband and I. We want to repeat this experience soon. :) Beautiful boat, interesting... More

Where to begin... Just one of those things as a local you have to try. It's simply unique and memorable. Great service. Great food and very much worth every penny. On board wine list very good too. The food was simply top quality. Spoilt for choice with a 5 course meal. Simply a must for a couple. Groups of 4... More

The Sunday lunch was one of the best meals out I have enjoyed for a long time & the service was excellent with friendly, quality staff (very professional ). We... More

Unlike another canal boat dinner cruise I went on years ago, this boat is extremely spacious with tables for 2, each of which is by a huge picture window. The service was excellent, the windows were sparkling clean, the food was both plentiful and very good quality with a good choice. Wine was reasonable too, starting at £13 a bottle... More

But we plan return for an evening cruise some time and would gladly pay the asking price for a lovely relaxing and interesting few hours. We were served an excellent three course meal (no frozen veg or roast potatoes)...Delicious!!!The staff were friendly and efficient and made sure... More

I was intrigued to read that Birmingham has more miles of canals than Venice and thought dining on a canal boat would be a romantic way to spend an evening. The trip out providing an interesting mix of scenery with the gritty industrial areas... More
