The boat was booked for a large group from work - no other customers. The close confines of the boat ensures a friendly atmosphere is generated and with no-one else to disturb this did lead to singing. The food was surprisingly good considering there was...More

Lovely Sunday lunch, well presented starter and nice flavour. Staff were very polite and attentive without being a bother. Good main course and dessert. A very pleasant afternoon.
