This floating restaurant is a delightful oasis whether just visiting Bath or supporting the local rugby team. Lunches and light snacks equally good and home made. Very reasonable price wise

Response from PENNYLANERIVERBOAT | Property representative |
No we are a private hire venue for parties of up to 100 people, not a barge you can hire to operate yourself. Try bath narrowboats or sally boats they may be able to help. Good luck
