I was staying in Peterborough and had walked past this on my way to the hotel.

It was great eating on a boat even if it was a little lob-sided! I had beef to start, red thai chicken curry and Jasmine tea.

The meal was very nice, great setting and the whole lot came to £21 inc service charge 10%.

I would come here again for sure.

Beautiful linen table clothes and napkins and glassware give a first impression of luxury and quality. The restaurant overlooks the river Nene so you have a good view while eating whatever the weather.
Food quality is very high and the buffet is topped up and kept fresh also.
Recommended.

The food was average Thai cuisine. It was well presented. However the dishes were no better than bog-standard Chinese take away fare, considering most Chinese takeaways do Thai cuisine these days. For example the sweet and sour pork was no different from my local Chinese takeaway. This was all part of a £19.95 (per person!) menu, and it would have been even more expensive had we not selected the 'set menu' option. There isn't even a bottle of wine under £15.50, so I ordered a beer and a soft drink instead as it was cheaper. The customer service was good but I still felt ripped-off after paying a £50 bill for a bog-standard meal for 2.

I love eating here, the food is amazing and the service is great, plus sitting on the river makes a change from the usual restaurant setting. Their set lunch menus are great value for money.

Went to this floating resturant for the first time and discovered the do 2 courses for £10 on a Tuesday. A good choice of starters and mains (although much shorter than the main menu), it also includes rice and a vegetable dish. The food was fantastic, the service attentive but not obtrusive. The restaurant was very busy when we went but there was no excessive wait for the food. Tremendous value for money, I cannot wait to go back again.
