“Evening jazz cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

We went on the evening jazz cruise and had a fabulous time sipping cocktails in the moonlight as we gently cruised down river. The staff are very friendly and looked after us extremely well, nothing is too much trouble for them. It is a fantastic venue and the scenery is superb. We look forward to holding our wedding reception with them on the boat next year. A.Isaac

“Crusing down the river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

I was on a coach trip from Burton on Trent to Shrewsbury on the 21 September 2012, which included a trip on the Sabrina Boat and free tea or coffee. The staff were very welcoming when we first arrived and we were looked after exceptionally well. We had a commentary by a member of staff (good looking chap I might add) which was very informative about the surrounding areas in Shrewsbury. Although the weather wasn't brilliant everyone had a good time. This trip is well worth a visit. Thanks a lot.

“Afternoon on the river”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

We had a wonderful leisurely afternoon cruise down the River Severn! It was a wonderful sunny day and it was sparkling! We took the late afternoon cruise. Later, we found out that the lunch- time cruise was fully booked so we had been fortunate. The tour guide was informative but not patronising.

“Paolos restaurant three course meal and Sabrina Boat cruise after- recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

For £15 you get a three course meal and a 1 1/2 hour cruise, all your need pay for on the night is drinks. We all had a nice time, although its a shame about the rain and it was so dark we couldn't see any of Shrewsbury from the boat. Well have to go again on a day trip or something, anyway we just enjoyed having drinks and chatting so it was still a good end to the night and as I said great value :)

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We are really glad you enjoyed your evening with us. We have now changed the format of the Italian Cruise, so that the cruise is first and the three course meal follows, to allow passengers to enjoy views on these darker evenings. We would love you to join us for a day cruise, and hope to see you onboard in the future!

“lazy sunday morning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

if you want to while away 40 minutes, take a trip on Sabrina - pleasant way to view Shrewsbury and entertaining commentary thrown in. As an added bonus, sabrina has a well stocked bar and waiter service.....what more could you ask for.,
