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.

Reviewed 6 December 2023 via mobile

It was a winter evening trip to celebrate my wife's retirement from nursing, having happily dined there before. It was a disaster. 2 servers. The first dropped our first drinks order all over the table and my wife's belongings (we were only given a spare...napkin to clear the mess on our own), the second almost dropped my wife's soup in her lap. Spent the trip trying to dry everything. Subsequent orders were overlooked as the servers prioritised their teammates private Xmas party at the back of the barge. There was nobody in authority to complain to. Paid well over £100 for this claustrophobic experience. Needless to say, won't go again.More

We had a really lovely evening, no criticism at all. Staff were friendly and efficient, the atmosphere on board was lovely and the food was decent. The cost was very reasonable.

The boat is a bit shabby and tired , needs a good kick of paint . The chairs are very comfortable but too squashed , needs a table less then there would be more room . The lunch was disappointing, horrid veg and not very...hot . The staff were delightful and very smiley and helpful . The cruise was two hours , taken up in two locks , it didn’t feel long enough ! 3 hrs would be perfect . Parking not great , some walk . A fun thing to do once , but wouldn’t do it again unless a bit longer . Not enough time to enjoy lunch and the surroundingsMore

Meal was lovely. There is no air conditioning on board or even a fan. Was too hot to enjoy the experience. So disappointed.

A really lovely experience, sailing down the canal on a summer evening. The boat itself is cosy and romantic. Dinner was delicious, and we weren’t rushed at all. Given the experience and quality of the food, this is excellent value for money,

A lovely relaxing way to spend a Sunday lunchtime! Staff were very helpful and attentive, service was not rushed and food was tasty. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Stratford upon Avon.....book in advance.

Took my girlfriend to propose to her. Boat stopped at a private location and I popped the question at the waterfall. Excellent experience with friendly staff. That made it a magical experience for her. 10/10 and would definitely go again.

Superb, a great night out, dinner on a luxury narrow boat with good organisation and friendly staff - it's almost worth a 300 miles round trip just to do this on its own. Looking forward to returning soon

Very nice. Friendly staff, well organised, good efficient table service and the food was fantastic. We even had chance to stretch our legs half way through the 2 .5 hour boat trip which was nice and it also let us photograph it from the outside...going through a lock. So I highly recommend booking a dinner boat trip with this company. 10/10.More

Good points: Lovely cruise Friendly staff Bad points: 10% service charge which is mentioned nowhere but on your bill Sneakily worded question by the girl taking orders which gets each table to pay for extra bread Very salty soup Tough chicken The salty soup and...tough chicken may have been a one-off. The lack of mention of the service charge and the sneaky question are deliberate. We paid almost £110 yet only had one drink each. Do not expect to pay just the £40.50 per person plus a drink.More

There's only a few steps to get down, but you do have to mind your head. I'm sure someone could assist if needed
