    Had to change boats because of the height of the river Ouse so had lunch whilst stationary. Food was really delicious hot and well presented. Pleasant surroundings and staff. Would highly recommend.

    Did the cruise on an extremely rainy day. Staff were very helpful and informative. Captain was also the guide who was funny and had plenty of knowledge. Was sceptical about the food but it was delicious and we polished off the main and dessert. A good cruise.
