We had a really delightful time at The Boatman. The riverside setting and rustic feel to the venue really compliment the delicious food. I don't normally ask to speak to the cook to congratulate them, but I just had to tell Chef Poois how great my meal was. We will definitely be back, and I thoroughly recommend this establishment to... More

This was recommended by our hotel and rightly so,it's not that far from the centre but is something a bit different. Special board as well as a seasonal type menu, well cooked food good atmosphere what else do you need.

Revisited this lovely riverside restaurant for a pre-Christmas meal and found a beautiful, candle-lit Christmassy atmosphere topped by the lights twinkling around the ancient rowing boats. Wonderfully cooked duck leg with a delicious celeriac and parsnip mash was a great appetiser for the Christmas weekend. The service was warm and efficient. Definitely got us into the Christmas spirit!

We had a group of 8 people together to go for a semi-fancy Christmas dinner in a relaxed atmosphere and the Bathwick Boatman was the perfect choice, the atmosphere was gorgeous, in a really nice part of town and the staff were ALL absolutely lovely and the utmost professionals. Come to think of it there was a small mistake with... More

We went here on a girls weekend in Bath and had a fantastic evening. The food is really excellent with an imaginative menu - everyone absolutely loved what they ate. The lady owner was charming, incredibly accommodating and made us feel really welcome. Overall superb service. It's worth a walk or taxi ride out of the town centre to visit... More

Tripadvisor brought us to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. It is a bit out the way to get to, just outside the main streets of Bath, but all still walkable. We went for a light lunch and we were greeted with a very warm welcome and smiles from the staff. The place and the staff gave the place... More

We went to this restaurant for Sunday lunch and I have to say the food was top notch! Delicious and generously portioned.We started with calamari and pate and I have to say, tartare sauce with calamari was to die for!After our starters I had lamb and my partner had sea bass and both were excellent.

Great Sunday lunch at the Boatman. Between us we tried almost all the starters and they were all delicious. Turkey and beef roasts with lots of delicious vegetables. Generous portions, good value. Warm and cosy ambience. Will definitely be back.
