Not cheap in here but a nice place to sit and watch the world go by with a glass of wine. Prices are a bit steep but service is good and location is lovely, overlooking Eton Bridge and the Thames.

Thoroughly enjoyed Sunday lunch at the Boatman, great service and a lovely setting over looking the river. There were four of us and we each had a different roast. Plenty of it and beautifully presented, highly recommend.

Following a day trip to Windsor, and a stroll round Eton, stopped here for drinks and a bite to eat... Could not find fault! Great beer and superb food. Not too pricey. Absolutely perfect location overlooking the river. Highly recommended

The Boatman loves dogs - inside or outside and they will get treats and water :-) You can bring them down and have a meal too. I have two dogs (a bischon frise and a pug) and we regularly bring them along...
