We stayed on a day boat with visiting friends. We had the warmest welcome from Antonia who gave us a great restaurant recommendation as well as giving us clear instructions on how to use the boat. We would thoroughly recommend bath narrow boats. Olly.

You would need to ask because I went on a party booking where food came as part of the package. The food was very good and certainly on the our boat trip it was all part of the attraction. They may have other options though.
