me and my mother loved it! my mum had always wanted to experience a canal cruise and it was everything she wanted and that means alot to me. it needed to be perfect and it really was! the staff are awesome and could not do enough for their customers, the barge was amazing, so clean, relaxing and such a great place/atmosphere to be, we could of stayed there all day. the decor is so pretty, modern and chic, it was perfect! the only suggestion i have is maybe more food, a small warm tin(like half a pint size) with abit of battered fish, 3 thick cut chips and peas or chip shop curry would of gone down a treat, iv had this on other afternoon teas and its really an excellent touch, please offer it and just thank me on my next visit haha me and my mum are already planning our next cruise!! p.s. i called ahead (with very ittle notice) to ask if they could do a little something as it was my gift to my mother for her 60th and with the little notice they had they still managed to pull soething out the bag, thanks you so much for a wonderful time! see you again soon!

Starting from the Riley Green Marina just off Bolton Road in the picturesque village of Hoghton, sail down the Leeds and Liverpool Canal with Canal Boat Cruises and treat yourself to the finest dishes on board the Romance Restaurant Boat. It’s a world away from Chorley, as you witness the scenic countryside unfold before your eyes while tucking into delicious specialities prepared a la minute by the professional chef.
Choose from a two-course gourmet lunch or a three-course dinner – the latter is perfect for catching the sunset against a natural, rustic backdrop – or opt for a more casual afternoon tea or tapas cruise. Expect traditional British classics to feature heavily on the menu, from Spout House Farm roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and gravy; to haggis, black pudding, and apple tower; and even homemade scones. With a warm and attentive crew accompanying you on your journey, you know you’re in good hands with Canal Boat Cruises. The best part is, cruises run throughout the year, so there’s always something to return for regardless of the season. Why dine on land when you can do so on water? Canal Boat Cruises in Hoghton is an easy 15-minute drive from Chorley, which makes it an excellent choice for a half-day trip or to celebrate a special occasion. Don’t miss out; reserve in advance for your preferred date, time, and type of cruise today!
