Would definitely recommend! We booked the boat for a joint 30th and it was really great atmosphere all day. The set up was perfect for a mixture of chatting and enjoying the outdoors upstairs whilst being livelier downstairs as the night went on.The sound system was really good and they facilitated a combination of using a playlist, our own DJs and some live music. Lee was really responsive and helpful during the booking process and the staff were all so helpful and friendly on the day.Great location all around!

Organised my partner’s surprise birthday here and it was a really memorable night. From the cool venue, to the great choice or drinks and music/events- I couldn’t recommend this more. Lee was great support as well throughout the planning process. Much appreciated.

We booked the boat for a work summer party and it could not have been more wonderful. Constantly attentive service from Lee, great food, and the atmosphere on the boat was so conducive to great conversation. Really amazing.

I hosted my sisters Hen on the beautiful canal boat and it surpassed all expectations. Lee went above and beyond in the lead up and on the day, to truly make it one to remember. The food, cocktails and vibe was perfect. I couldn't recommend enough!

Had a brilliant work event on the barge. Lee and the team had everything prepared for us, and it was great to have a private bar, sound system, dance floor and seating on the deck all to ourselves. Would definitely recommend, and thanks to everyone at The Mary Read!
