Two friends and myself visited this restaurant for Dinner. On asking to set up a tab, the staff were only interested in how we were intending to pay. The 'Specials' board featured a fish stew, with saffron and fresh fish. Two of us ordered this and a travesty of the described offering appeared. A soup plate with mostly chopped tinned... More

She wasn't wrong, great food, great value, amazing views. I also had cause to contact the Boat House firstly to book and check they could accommodate a vegan but also as... More

Went for Sunday lunch today and it was bleddy delicious - would thoroughly recommend - is also dog friendly in the bar part - we booked a table to avoid disappointment - beer good too and prosecco on draft - staff lovely - and agree with the pub's statement that this is a ' proper ' homemade sunday lunch :)

Fed up with cooking over Christmas, eight of us went to The Boatyard. Not having been there before, it was a case of potluck. It was excellent. Very few starters, but the chef knocked up some garlic bread to go with the calamari. Both were very good and shared. Calamari not at all rubbery, but fresh and easy to eat,... More

The food is less than average and certainly over priced. My burger is one of the driest I've ever had. The awful 70s Musak was so loud that the staff miss hear the order and serve my 12 year old with a 28 day aged steak rather than the braised steak stew.

We liked if that much we went back for the Sunday roast the next day which is great value but you do need to book. Our daughter who is... More

Called in the boathouse late Sunday afternoon looking for Sunday lunch, we hadn't booked and most tables had been reserved but the staff couldn't have been more helpful and managed to squeeze us in. I ordered the lamb and my partner ordered the beef. The lamb was delicious, so tender it just fell apart and when combined with the amazing... More

Returned to the Boathouse after far too long a time. I wasn't disappointed we had a fabulous meal and the staff are efficient and friendly. As always a great selection of beers (and spirits!). We will be back soon!
