Fantastic food and drinks, we visited after seeing the weeping poppies at Middleport Pottery. It was a lovely service and sitting on the edge of the canal watching the world go by so relaxing. Well worth a visit.

Oatcake boat is a treat, its there when you forgot about it, walking to the match and there it floats in all its glory! Sometimes along side as beautiful beer boat! Hope to see you gorgeous wooden ladies soon!

Visited whilst they were moored at Middleport Pottery bacon and cheese oatcakes were perfect!! Very tasty and we thoroughly enjoyed them with a lovely cup of tea. Will certainly keep an eye open for them around Stoke on Trent in the future.

Can not wait to visit the oatcake boat again. Traditional Staffordshire Oatcakes cooked by Kay on The Oatcake boat. For those who don’t know, they are traditionally savoury, look a bit like a pancake and are served with cheese, bacon, and other options. We had...More

We went to the oatcake boat yesterday, on the canal next to the Bet365 stadium. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The oatcakes themselves were the best I've ever tasted, I managed to eat 4 cheese and tomato ones before I was satisfied. The...More
