“canal cruise with a difference”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Went here last week, for the hotpot cruise, and wat can we say but FABULOUS. Lovely food, we were well looked after, had a lovely sedate cruise down the canal, the weather was glorious! Total relaxation, such a lovely afternoon..
We have already bought another deal, so will go again...!
You won't be disappointed x

“Great Afternoon Out”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Always looking to try new things, we took an afternoon tea trip on a lovely sunny April day.

Operating a small yet perfectly formed barge, we found the staff to be friendly, the boat cleaned after each trip, great food on offer (with amazing scones, clotted cream and jam!) and as much tea and coffee to make your back teeth swim.

The gentle cruise along the Leeds Liverpool canal gives you a serene view of West Lancashire and the approach at Rufford Top Lock's bridge 1 could almost be Canal du Midi.

A memorable time for all the family, especially our 3 yrs toddler who found the whole experience enthralling.

Private hire is available and it's a definite consideration for taking another, longer trip towards Lathom

Fab afternoon out, lovely clean boat with big windows, really nice food all set out on the tables with 'help yourself' tea and coffee.
I would definately recommend this company and any of their boat trips and I think I've found what I'm buying people for christmas.

And the sun shone!!

“Brilliant cruise/afternoon tea”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Four of us went on this cruise on Friday and we didn't want it to finish. The afternoon tea along with a glass of bubbly was delicious, there was unlimited tea and coffee and the opportunity to pourchase more alcohol was there. Our captain was really interesting and amusing - full of local knowledge. We all thought what a lovely day out and are now considering maybe a tapas cruise or one of the many other on their website. Thanks everybody concerned.

“Brilliant breakfast cruise would definitely recomend”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

Myself and my partner went on the breakfast cruise yesterday. We had a brilliant morning. Lovely clean and modern boat. Big windows giving it a light and airy feel. The staff were all really polite and helpful, the serving girls were lovely. Our captain was an absolute star he really needs mentioning, didn't catch his name but he was such a lovely person with lots of knowledge about the history of the canal and the local areas. We even got to "drive" the barge ourselves!
My only niggle would be we thought the breakfast could have been a little bigger. We paid half price £30 for both of us for the cruise so were ok with it but mayb we would have been a bit unhappy had we paid full price. All in all a great morning something different for a Sunday morning would definitely recomend!
