The boat was very nicely equipped for drinks and Sunday dinner and the numbers are limited so service is on the ball. The tour lasted 3 hours and took us around some very nice and some not so nice places but all of... More

I thought that this would be a nice 24th anniversary present for my wife and we weren't disappointed. Boarding the boat at The Water's Edge in Brindley Place you are taken on a 3 hour canal journey. My wife has a wheat allergy so I asked if this could be taken into account when I booked a few weeks prior... More

Booked for Valentine's Day. Cruise was OK with captain scraping the sides of the canal at times. Expensive but expected cost but not for quality of food. Found that my taste are was valid for 50% only after visit to my annoyance. Staff were rude (apart from the captain) and spent more time trying to hide in kitchen than attending... More

Food was better than expected and the wine was lovely. Didn't realise you could use a taste card and save 50% which was annoying. Also couldn't see much as the windows just reflected the inside back (went at night).
