We had been recommended the Boatyard by friends, and 3 of us went there prior to a Remembrance Day Concert marking 100 years since the end of World War 1. We were certainly not disappointed with the quality of the food and the service. Having previously booked a table, we were immediately shown to it and were given the menus. What a choice, we were unable to make our minds up quickly. We were served with our drinks, and the waitress then took our order for the main courses.I had pasta Carbonara in a bacon, mushroom and cream sauce. Previous to ordering I had asked the waitress if there was any garlic in the Carbonara. She went to ask the chef, and came back immediately saying he would cook it without the garlic. It was excellent, nicer than some we have had in Italy. I was asked if I would like Parmesan cheese and when I said yes, it was brought in a small ramekin, so I could put on as much or as little as I liked. Another member of our party ordered the Declaration Fish Pie. When it came it ws in an oval dish with a side salad. It too was delicious. The last member of our party had Chicken with a chilli & chorizo sauce on stir fry vegetables. She asked if the sauce was very spicy, and they said they would put in a small side dish, so she could have as much or as little as she wished. What a nice touch. During the meal a senior member of staff came over to ask if everything was to our liking. We all agreed it was all excellent. Our meal was followed by coffee. This is certainly one restaurant that looks after their customers, ensuring they will return. The staff were all so pleasant, polite and helpful.
