“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013 via mobile

We had our works Christmas party here on Friday 20th December. Absolutely fab night. Atmosphere was great and the food was excellent. I had the fish cakes, turkey dinner (which wasn't dry at all) and lemon tart for pudding all for £34pp which is very reasonable considering some places were charging £50+. We danced the night away and i have to say was one of the best Christmas parties i have been to for a long time.

“sarah's hen do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

Had my daughters's Hen do on the boat last night and it was fantastic. We were a party of 21 hens and the staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly. It is such a different venue and was warm and cosy downstairs with pretty lighting. We had a wonderful disco that played all the songs we wanted to dance to and it was just magical. We couldn't have been more pleased with the boat and the staff and if you are looking for a celebration with a difference would definitely recommend this to you.

“running club summer event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

We decided to dress up as something nautical for the trip which made it extra special-- the weather couldn't have been any better and a great time was had by all. Andrea and all of the staff were lovely and the food was excellent and well presented, thanks very much for a lovely evening and look forward to the next one.

“Andrew and Cathy Merry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013

We hired the Penny Lane for our wedding reception and it proved to be the perfect venue for our wedding reception, the food was delicious and the crew worked non stop to ensure it all went smoothly. The barge was clean and had recently been painted, the toilets were spotless too. All our guests had a fabulous day and loved the cruise and the weather was kind to us.
We would definitely recommend this venue for your wedding reception or party.
