Excellent

I absolutely recommend going on the Lakeland Queen for a dinner cruise. My partner and I really, really enjoyed the band that played, they were great and it got better when we finished our meal, as everyone was up on the dance floor dancing. The Dinner was beautiful, and they had a good variety to suit all pallets.The views were spectacular especially when the sun was going down. The staff were second to none and more the happy to assist in any way. I thought it was REALLY great valley for money and will definitely go out again. Thanks goes to the Captain and all his staff.
