I came here for lunch on 13th January and I was very pleased with my visit! I ordered the Beef and Onion chutney sandwich with chunky chips. Everything was delicious and the service was A class. Speedy, short waiting time, friendly staff. There is nothing I can fault at all. Well done Boathouse! I'll be definitely visiting again.

Pretty good. Food is decent, portions are fine and everything was hot and tasty. Various menus so lots to choose from. Enjoyed the whitebait and colleagues were impressed by the steak. Nothing spectacular but solid and good value for money.

As it is about 18 months since I last reviewed The Boathouse but have been back several times since - it is probably due for another one.

Lovely meal, lovely atmosphere and great music - what more do I need to say. The staff worked very hard and nothing was too much trouble. We had a Christmas set meal and the food was lovely and it was not over priced. Definitely will be going back there.

Had forgotten to warn them of the additional person but without any problem they moved us to a bigger table with ample space. Starters were ordered. King prawns in garlic, mouth watering. Meatballs in sauce, delicious. Mains were of the same standard, sea bass... More
