Went on Saturday night for a friend's birthday. Love the atmosphere, really pleasant service and the food was gorgeous. I have the cod, loved the presentation and the leek terrine was delicious. Will surely go again!

I've eaten here three times now, the food is excellent and the service is great. You are not crammed in and the atmosphere is good. It is a bit on the expensive side but to be honest it's worth it.

When in with the wife for lunch. It was quiet, service was cold and the food was a bit bland but at the same time a bit twangy, like it was old. Probly will return but only if we must. Next door is much better

I've eaten food here a few times and it's always been ok (a bit over priced for what you get) but this time it wasn't good at all and I've been up all night feeling sick. I had the scallops to start which were ok a bit luke warm and rubbery and then the fish and chips which were so... More

Called in at the boathouse one Saturday evening and had a very nice meal again. We have dined here a few times and the food had always been tasty and well presented. The restaurant was very busy and my only complaint was that from being seated it took quite a while for the waiter to actually take our order. However... More

We ate here with a large group in Jan 2017. It was a 50% sale which made the prices acceptable for what we got. I started with the duck, the was a wooden plank, with a nice piece of toast, a bit of salad and a very small jar crammed with duck, however the duck was stone cold so tasted... More

Our first ever visit to Farndon Boathouse and if this was anything to go by, then it will be along time before we return. Entered very early in the evening at the beginning of December to be greeted by the words "Hope you will be finished by 7.30 as we have a large booking and this table is needed!". Put... More

Disappointing first visit to this restaurant. Very busy and quite noisy. We had booked via an offer which I presume was meant to encourage more trade, however we felt almost ignored! The service was very slow and the waiting staff didn't seem to care whether we ordered or not. We asked for sparkling water and got still and the olive... More
