Nice afternoon sailing up and down the canal and Sunday lunch. Staff were attentive and service was quick and efficient. The meal, I felt was basic and everything for the quickest and easiest. EG, No roll with soup, Roast beef dinner without Yorkshire pudding and no roast potatoes. Mash potato ? packet mix with plenty butter in. cold fudge cake with pouring cream. No offer of tea or coffee after meal. What we got was edible but very basic. Also, no safety drill before sailing.

Absolutely loved this 90 minute mini cruise.
Food was lovely. Homemade veg soup, a roll, then afternoon tea to follow. Unlimited tea or coffee, but we preferred to have a couple of tipples from the bar 😉
Was just perfect for us, apart from the weather, which was unfortunate. Would deffo book this again, maybe when the weather is a little kinder. All in all 💯 %
Thank you x

Initial Communication not great, left voice mails which were not returned. Eventually booked a trip then went to look at the boat, did this the wrong way round. I'm sure the boat looks OK in the dark but in daylight a bit scruffy interior wise, to me it didn't look very inviting for a day cruise package.

Got a Groupon deal and left it a bit late to book so ended up going on a Wednesday night. Got soup and cream tea. Can’t fault the food - it was delish, staff really friendly and was encouraged to go outside so we could see more. As it was evening it’s pretty dark, but it was a clear night (no rain) so enjoyed looking at the stars and just floating along. As it was dark there wasn’t much to see, but all in all we had an enjoyable 80 minutes onboard 😊

Went on a Boatel afternoon tea cruise yesterday and it was great!! My husband found it on Groupon and thought it would be a bit different. It far outweighed my expectations. A lovely bowl of soup with a roll followed by scones, jam and cream and a selection of other cakes. As much tea and coffee as you like, all served by a really friendly team. There's also a bar if you fancy an afternoon tipple. All this whilst cruising along the canal admiring the scenery and lovely houses. Would definitely recommend you try it.

Although booked through group on this was definitely not value for money. Thought it was afternoon tea but ended up with a bowl of soup and no bread to go with it, the soup was about 4 spoon fulls. They did have unlimited tea and coffee but the cakes were like something like they had just got from a 5 yr old kids party. The waitress was full of cold with a sore throat which had now been passed to ourselfs. Definitely not recommended this trip
