What people are saying

Our ceremony was the first wedding at The Boat That Rocks. The venue and the service was excellent. If you are looking for something different, we would thoroughly recommend The Boat That Rocks. We had such a lovely day and even at my age, it was one of the best days of my life.
Ruth & Stuart Martindale, 23/06/2011

We use the Boat regularly, whether for a quick coffee or a meal. The meals are always tasty and good value for money. But the thing we like the best is how friendly and attentive the staff are. Can't wait to try to Christmas menu selection!
Mr & Mrs R Barton

From the beginning planning stages months ago to the actual day they could not have been more accommodating with our actual wishes. They made sure our wedding reception was perfect and took away all the stress from us.
Laura & Carl Blackmore

A pleasant, clean meeting place with good coffee and the staff are very friendly.
