Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A really lovely Sunday afternoon trip along the Witham, super friendly crew, drinks, snacks and toilet on board and lovely views along the way. Definitely recommend!

Driving there: If you’re lucky, you can park in a few bays just in front of the Boston Lock Cafe, otherwise, we parked in Tunnard Street Car Park, which was £2 for pretty much all day.

Rodney and his staff were so welcoming, friendly and you learnt a lot from them.

We did the Wednesday river cruise to The Malcolm Arms on the Prince George. You can sit inside or outside on the boat. Very relaxing and picturesque views! The food at The Malcolm Arms was very nice with plenty of choice.

Though we have lived for years across the water in Norfolk we, until this point hadn’t visited our Lincoln neighbours.
A lovely old boat with a lovely crew who served bacon rolls and tea ( they do accept cards)
Lovely wildlife, herons avocets, curlews and cormorants, not forgetting the seals.

My wife and I were part of a group of six friends celebrating the birthday of one of our number with a boat trip out to The Wash and back. We started out not really expecting it to be anything special, well we soon came to realise how wrong we were, it was utterly brilliant.

All the crew members were smiley and friendly throughout, the boat was clean and it departed punctually. The only food served was bacon rolls and tea of course, but the rolls are deliciously fresh and contained plenty of bacon. The trip was fantastic and we will definitely be repeating the experience.

There was just one very minor niggle however. Standing behind two others in the queue to buy our bacon rolls it took ages, as the cheerful and pleasant staff were in utter chaos, not sure what to charge and what was ordered and by whom etc. etc. However the whole trip was so good I have no trouble forgiving them for that one and only issue which I mention only for balance.

We took the RSPB trip on the Boston Belle. The RSPB volunteers were brilliant - friendly and knowledgeable. The trip was very informative and enjoyable - but for one thing. At least 3 of the boat crew came out on several occasions onto the deck where we were to smoke. I didn’t fell this was really acceptable but what was most upsetting was the fact that they all threw their cigarette butts into the river.

Excellent value for money. Friendly staff, Rodney and his crew. Nice trip up the river Witham to Antons Gowt on beautiful Sunday afternoon. Followed by an excellent carvery at the Malcolm Arms. Cost £25 per person for the trip and carvery. Could not fault it. Highly recommend when visiting Boston. We hope to do the wildlife trip in November, warm clothing of course!

A lovely trip on board the Boston Belle with captain Rodney ably assisted by Jordan.
So lovely to have a cruise on the river and to be able to take in all the wildlife on our way up to Antons Gowt. We got off here to enjoy our 2 course meal which was lovely, plenty of time to eat and enjoy a drink before heading back to Boston. The whole trip is dog friendly, which we really appreciate. Will definitely go again and highly recommend this trip to anyone.

Four of us arrived early for a 12.30pm departure. The whole experience was great! Over 20 years since I went fishing in The Wash. It is worth seeing the river view of Boston - taking an hour to get to Tabs Head at the mouth of the Haven. After a pause in The Wash we ventured up the River Welland almost to Fosdyke Bridge. At least 50 seals basking on the river banks. Birdlife include a very large Buzzard over the marshes (glad we remembered our binoculars). Beer and bacon baps available on board were most welcome! Arrived back at 5pm - fish & chips collected on the way home! Thanks to skipper Rodney and crew. Good value for a 4.5hrs boat trip!

Lovely day, the boat is great, clean and comfortable, staff are so thoughtful and kind. Trip was straightforward, the river is long and straight with few if any landmarks, but we enjoyed it, the food at the pub was OK, standard carvery, pork was yummy, some may find it a bit boring, I'd say I felt relaxed and happy. Staff were super with our 2 year old, even when fractious on the way back and could even take pushchair with us, they even gave my daughter some money back as the pub had charged us for his meal, she was thrilled and we didn't ask for it, just so kind, restores ones faith in human nature!😍
