Description: A Warm Welcome to The BoatHouse The Boat House is Worcestershire's new tapas restaurant and wine bar serving Mediterranean and British tapas dishes for lunch or evening meals. We are also open for drinks and coffees. The Boat House also boasts the best view in town with outside seating and balcony areas overlooking the river. Tapas is made up of small dishes, appetisers or snacks and is a great way to enjoy a variety of tastes and flavours you may order as few or as many dishes as you like. All our taps dishes are freshly prepared with love from our experienced kitchen team. After placing your order if you wish to add dishes or try anything else please feel free to ask. The serving of tapas is designed to encourage conversation because people are not so focused on eating an entire meal set out before them. We encourage a relaxed way of dinning, we hope you enjoy your experience with us at the Boat House and if you require anything at all however big or small please feel free to ask, we are here to help. Enter as a customer, leave as a friend!

We called in briefly for lunch (we had a 2pm appointment). There may have been disabled access but I didn't notice as at the moment I can manage with my stick tho' the steps were very steep. I'd been chatting to a little old lady with a wheelie frame and offered to help her up the steps but she said she was alright (though I didn't quite see how.) I think she must be a regular as one of the staff immediately went out to help her.
My son and I only got as far as the ground floor bar/eating area to place our order - we were fortunate that it was a lovely day (October in the U.K.!) and wanted to sit outside. The first thing we noticed was a board on the counter advertising "Boards". I said I didn't want to eat a board; we just had time for a sandwich as we had a 2pm appointment in Hanley Swan. A Board for 2 turned out to be cheese, pickles, etc so we decided to try it, plus a pot of tea for 2
Service was first class and friendly. We very much enjoyed the variety of cheeses and the bread was lovely and fresh.
I didn't notice any ashtrays but as a smoker I'm always very careful with my cigarette ends (roll-ups, so not quite as noxious as cork tips). The usual scenario is - if there are no ashtrays there are loads of cork tips lying round on the floor. There were none. Either there were ashtrays somewhere or they have good cleaners! The toilets were very clean also.
Our experience at the Boathouse was totally 5* and I would definitely go back.

Following a friend’s recommendation, I visited The Boathouse and I’ve now been a handful of times since my first visit. The food there has been consistently delicious, well presented and full of flavour. We enjoyed the King Tapas choice, this is 11 tapas dishes for £23 – excellent value!

There's a great atmosphere, the staff are welcoming and make you feel comfortable as soon as you walk into the restaurant.

This is all before I mention the location, the restaurant is next to the River Severn and looks out to the river and countryside - it’s the perfect place for watching the sunset. There’s a balcony too for al fresco dining.

I’m also looking forward to going one evening with my friends to try some of the cocktails and extensive drinks choices that are there too. We found out about this the last time we went!

Overall I’ve had a fantastic experience every time I’ve been and would highly recommend anyone to try it out to see for themselves. I’ll be back again very soon.

Visited The Boathouse on Sunday with a group of friends. Only planned on having a coffee but ended up having tapas (which was delicious) and sitting on the balcony most of the afternoon enjoying the view in the late summer sunshine. Service was outstanding, and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend if visiting the area.
