Went on the 2 hour evening cruise . What an enjoyable experience. Staff were brilliant. Cocktails and nibbles were served. Bar prices were reasonable. I will be booking my next trip very soon.

We did this two hour evening cruise on Sunday and what an unbelievably good time we had. We started with a complimentary drink from the bar, then was offered various breads and dips followed by local pies and chutneys. I would definitely recommend this.

Brilliant trip...weather was awful at the start but it didn't spoil the trip. Very informative and relaxing. Not idea for young children (couple on with us and were bored so became quite noisy) drinks and the loo available too. Well worth the trip!
