Have never hired a boat from here under the new owners but they put on great entertainment a few times a year. For my husband and I this is one of the very best venues during the Middlewich FAB festival weekend.

Hi I just saw your comments about Middlewich Narrowboats and I was particularly interested because I remember spending a wonderful week on the boat you had - Oak - with 10 friends.
