Visited with friends and family 10 of us in total, our friends were not familiar with this area and were struggling to find where to park, a member of staff was very helpful and sorted this for us.
The food and service was fantastic my steak was cooked to perfection, no one had a bad thing to say about their meal. The menu is varied and there was something to suit all tastes and the kids were very impressed with the desserts.
All in all a great evening would recommend.

There were 2 very similar restaurants in Penzance, Bosun's Locker (Now called the Boatshed) offering a good choice of good quality meals, and another that I think is sinking.

After a really bad experience at the other restaurant we went to the Boatshed and thankfully found it has carried on the tradition of the Bosun's Locker with a good menu choice at reasonable prices including a range of steaks at around £15 (well under £21) and a good set of fish choices. We had Sea Bass and Cod - both were excellent, for desert I can recommend the cooked Banana with warm Rum sauce - boy was that sauce good - just don't drive afterwards ;)

A good meal well served by pleasant staff - thank you.

Food was superb and the staff were very friendly even though they were extremely busy. Got a bit confused on paying with card and opted out of service charge (thought I did), manually gave a tip and the staff very honestly checked that I hadn't intended to add the service charge also. A very pleasant evening altogether.

A pleasant atmosphere and very friendly staff. This place has the potential to be great but was lacking a bit in drinks (serving soft drinks out of large plastic bottles isn't very good) and the food wasn't that good and was quite expensive for the quality. A few improvements to quality and a bit more attention to detail and this place would be great!

Turned up here for lunch and as we had dogs with us needed to sit outside. Noticed a large oil slick on floor under and adjacent to tables so got up and walked off.

Not really a good impression.
