Great afternoon. Staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble! The food looked and tasted lovely, super fresh, and plentiful. A very relaxing way to enjoy afternoon tea.

Been meaning to do this for years and what a great afternoon cruising from the Bridgewater canal basin up to Trafford park & back whilst enjoying Sunday lunch and a glass of red! The boat is fantastic and the staff (owners?) were really nice people...More

Shame about the weather but the trip was really enjoyable. Food was really good especially considering the limited space in which the chef must have had to work. Drinks were really well priced as well, will definitely be back.
