I own a narrowboat hire business just down the canal from these guys and have worked with them for about 10 years. Their boat, built by one of the renowned shipbuilders is superb, their on board food is basic, but freshly prepared and cooked in one of the cleanest galleys you'll find. I know, I've seen it! They also went... More

We (around 30 of us) as part of a retirement do arranged a cruise with a 3 course dinner, costing £35 each. The cruise experience was nice and the boat was pleasant inside and out. However, the food was utterly dreadful, dry and bland, with a menu originating in the 1970s. Our host for the evening was initially polite and... More

Sheffield was a town of heavy industry. It was said to be an ugly picture in a beautiful frame. And, how true that was. All around Sheffield is the Green belt and the Peak District is a delight still. The city was never a place to visit as a tourist. The canal was a working canal with factories over shadowing...

Thank you for a memorable hen night.

Booked for a 10th wedding anniversary. Everyone loved it! Was a nice event to get everyone together. Bar on boat so can have a drink while on board. Owners are lovely people, willing to do anything to cater for your occasion. All the family enjoyed the day
