We hired the boat for an evening cruise along the Avon river with on board buffet dinner served on the lower deck whilst under way. The crew and catering staff are very professional and ensured the event ran smoothly throughout. The food was delicious. Highly recommended.

The bride's parents had booked the boat and caterers, for about 50 family and friends, the day after the wedding which was a perfect day after. We went up the river for an hour and a half and then back. The loos were fantastic, the dining room was light and airy and spacious, and the crew were brilliant. A really lovely view of the Avon

The ride was interesting for a wildlife spotting, I saw 3 king fishers. There are little points of intrest on the tour, mainly backs of gardens, until you reach the old wier.

Response from PENNYLANERIVERBOAT, Manager at The Penny Lane River Cruiser
Responded Jun 25, 2016
It appears this has been posted about the wrong boat, we do not operate short river trips and are on the wrong part of the river to reach the old weir. Glad the wildlife was in abundance though.

We cruised around the river on the day of my aunts wedding! It was sunny and such a lovely day! The staff were very helpful. Downstairs where the dinning/ disco took place, it was quite spacious. Very affordable prices at the bar (including kit kats which were only 50p!). Overall it was a great experience. The starter and the main course were absolutely delicious.

We hired the Penny Lane for our daughter's 18th Birthday party for a group of 50 on a Friday night. We also hired a band and ordered food. We had fantastic weather so were able to spend time on the top deck for the entire trip. The group loved it! It's something different to the usual nightclub or restaurant 18th Birthday Party.The safety brief was very well pitched for 18 year olds. The bathrooms were very luxurious. The staff were really helpful. I would definitely recommend this for a birthday party.
