Went here with family on my holiday in Cornwall last week. The meal had its up and downs service was lovely, and they were very friendly. However the food was a bit hit and miss. We shared the seafood mezze for our starter which was delicious especially the crab cakes however we did notice the menu in the restaurant is... More

Just got back from a weeks stay in Charlestown. Charlies Boathouse was by far the best in town. The staff were so friendly & pleasant. Always had a smile on their faces. Made us feel so welcome. We had the meze board to start which was delicious followed by pasta & my husband had a pizza. The cocktails were amazing.... More

It does do cooked breakfast contrary to what the sign outside says. Very good with good kittow sausages and bacon, beans, tomato , large mushroom and toast. £7.50 I think with coffee at £2.40- which was weak but they added an extra shot when I pointed this out.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here today. The vegetarian burger was excellent, packed full of flavour and a break in taste from the normal sort of veggie burger. Garlic bread was amazing! Lovely friendly service, lovely outside seating area with lots of space. Nice kids menu too.

We have been going to Charlie's since it opened. Great place, with a great atmosphere. The cocktails are nice and the food is good. However, having been there a number of times, I think the menu could do with a rotation. Especially as in Regatta week there were no specials. We will still keep going as we do like the... More

Just had a lovely evening here at the boathouse. Am visiting a friend and she took me here for tea tonight. We both had pizza. Both were hot and served in good time. I had a Bellini cocktail which was also nice. Live music tonight (Friday) which was nice but quiet loud if you were sitting indoors having a meal.... More

First went in here one night for a drink and the food looked so good we returned a few days later. We were not disappointed. Lovely food and the cocktails were awesome.
