First time on the canal cruise night and we will do it again. Had a great night, we had tapas style food and it was lovely. A great night and something a bit different. Very good service, lots of staff. More...

We have just returned from a cruise in the pouring down rain, which certainly did not put us off, as we had such a nice time. The food is fantastic & the Staff are lovely, friendly & very attentive. I would highly recommend this cruise, it is very enjoyable & relaxing, even in awful weather. More...

We own a boat so never been on a cruise with this company but when we were stuck for a pump out for our boat John was very obliging and got it sorted for us without any fuss. Very much appreciated

The sun was shining. The service was excellent. The food was amazing. The tables were set for dinner beautifully. The boat quietly cruised through the countryside while we drank our glass if wine. We loved it. x

21st July. The staff are wonderful, professional and efficient but also friendly, patient and helpful. We were with a family group, 6 ladies , three generations. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the delicious and generous three course meal and the gentle boat trip along the canal, charming views on every side, and lots of ducks, swans. I think everyone would highly recommend it to their friends, I would come back again, my mum of 84 found it delightful. More...

We had a 3 course Sunday lunch booked for a birthday treat. Post code was accurate although the pub landmark we were looking for at the marina entrance wasn’t there any more. We had chosen our meal in advance and were not disappointed with any of the choices. We could see the chef and he did a fantastic job in the confined kitchen. The cruise was 3 hrs long and at a leisurely pace with plenty of time for a coffee after the meal. More...

We got married on the Romance on the 25th May and we had a lovely day. We paid for a 2 course meal and everyone who went said how lovely the food was. The scenery was really nice and the staff helpful and polite. I would highly recommend them for a small and chilled out wedding. Will try to talk my husband into one of their special events then we can use them again. More...

We went on the lunchtime canal cruise today on Romance. This was a Christmas gift off our daughter and her boyfriend. We absolutely loved it. The food was excellent, lovely decor, moorish gin & tonics, and very polite, friendly, helpful, professional staff. We will definitely recommend and we will definitely return ourselves. Our only downfall was the weather... it rained all day but unfortunately we can not predict the weather More...

A really nice outing and friendly staff. The food is amazing. So you can either book for lunch which is a 3 course meal, afternoon tea/coffee where you get drink, sandwiches and cake or they have tapas evenings. Ive been to all three and loved them all. We've also had a private party for an anniversary which was excellent. There is also a bar where you can buy any drink you like. The staff can't do enough for you. It truly is an enjoyable experience. Highly recommended. More...

"The Romance" - the restaurant barge. A really delightful way to spend a Sunday lunchtime gently drifting along the canal. The barge was very neatly laid out and the tables nicely set..... and the three course meal did not disappoint. With a small but well stocked bar to compliment your luncheon and attentive and pleasant service from two staff on board. Impressive that with 20 something on board and in the confines of a small galley, the meals were prepared by one chef... hats off to him.The three hours return journey was scenic and serene. Thank you to all the staff and crew for such a wonderful time. Highly recommended. More...

Very attentive and friendly staff. Great views that allow you to appreciate local scenery and nature. Food quite traditional that you need to book in advance. Not entirely my cup of tea when it comes to food, however, it was flawless. I would have preferred to be able to choose how much/less gravy I want on my chicken rather than given on the plate. I would also have preferred to have my own tea pot so I can pour it myself rather than given a single cup but other than that - Very pleasant, enjoyable experience. More...

Absolutely loved it. Came across this whilst searching on google for attractions in area. Booked the tapas evening which was perfect for a summers evening. Food was great, good sized portions and very tasty. Plus we didnt have to wait ages as it was cooked fresh and throughout journey up and down canal. Drinks were good value too plus decent stocked bar. Staff very attentive and pleasant and service with a smile. Everything went like clock work plus the photos that me and my wife captured as we cruised down canal in sunset were fantastic.

Super fresh sandwiches, really tasty little quiches and porkpies, and the scones for our cream tea were fresh, warm (not microwaved like in most places! ) and yummy!

On the recommendation of a friend we booked a 3 hour midweek cruise for 2 with a 3 course meal while on my annual holiday from work. Weather was kind and the boat was like a quality floating restaurant. The meal was excellent, the beef just melted in your mouth, the staff were extremely helpful and attentive and there was absolutely nothing to fault. Fabulous scenery along the way and the experience of travelling first down, then back up, through two locks, made this a a most relaxing, leisurely way to spend an afternoon. I would most definitely do it again. More...

Fantastic day, weather was sunny, food was nice and staff fabulous. Very professional. Barge was very comfortable and a lovely trip through delightful countryside. I would highly recommend this delightful cruise. We did a three course lunch, with three hour cruise. I have a gluten allergy, and felt they went one above I get in most restaurants, finding me gluten free bread and Yorkshire pudding. Great day thank you More...

Thank you for the best holiday I can imagine. We had a week on the Bridie Bear, even managing the Wigan Flight in the pouring rain. The boat was perfect, the scenery was beautiful and everyone we met along the way we're really friendly. The Riley Green crew were so helpful. A tip for anyone doing the Wigan flight.... Make sure you check out Wigan flight crew on Facebook, they were such a help to us as well. We weren't sure what to expect as it was the first time narrow boating, but will be back for more. Thank you More...

Last Sunday we enjoyed a 90th birthday party with a 3 hour cruise aboard Romance. The boat itself is beautiful; spotlessly clean, inviting and surprisingly spacious inside. The cruise was just lovely. We had a meal of meat and potato or cheese pie and this was excellent. The two staff members who served us were friendly and professional; we were probably not the easiest group with 10 children but they took it all in their stride. All in all everybody thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon and I would highly recommend this company for either special occasions, or just a treat! More...

Hired the whole boat for a family breakfast this morning, a really excellent cooked brekky with the full works, I'm vegetarian so they did quorn sausages for me, the grandchildren were well catered for drinks wise with juice/water etc, the waitress/kitchen staff worked non stop for the whole hour we were on board, nothing was too much trouble. It was really chilly out this morning but lovely & warm on the boat. Highly recommended! More...

Really lovely experience. Excellent afternoon tea. My only comment would be the difficulty booking - we had booked a tapas evening cruise originally but couldn't get booked in before the dark evenings drew in, hence the afternoon tea booking. Obviously very popular!

We hired a boat for a week and had a great time. The owners were very helpful and friendly. A bottle of wine, flowers and a large baskit of fruit were included. Met lots of different people on our trip to Skipton and back. We had a great time and the scenery was amazing. You don't know what you are missing until you hire a canal boat. More...

We hired 'Romance' for a 60th birthday celebration.  The process of booking was easy and straightforward, with staff being helpful, courteous and efficient.  Canal Boat Cruises provided us with a large and varied menu from which we, as clients, chose two items for each course, starter, main course and dessert; guests were then asked in advance what they wanted to eat, and the orders were duly submitted.On the day we were welcomed aboard with 'red carpet' treatment.  It is worth mentioning that access to the boat is down steps, which may make it difficult for people with restricted mobility.  The space inside the boat is large and airy, and makes for a great atmosphere, with pleasant background music playing.  Once all guests were on board the crew cast off for our three hour cruise during which a delicious lunch - which had been cooked on board from fresh ingredients - was served.  The bar was, open, drinks were served, and everyone had a great time.The service was faultless, and we can recommend this venue for any family celebration without reservation.
