We come here quite often and even though it can be expensive, the whole experience is worth it. The staff are friendly and they have always gone out of their way to make our evening enjoyable. The menu always has both interesting and new dishes, as well as more familiar foods so people with different tastes can feel like there... More

The service was as good as any so called top class restaurants and better than most, the food was delicious and perfectly presented. The menu was excellent with a good choice, even for the fussy eaters such as me.

Called in for a coffee & snack, the service was really welcoming. Although we didn't have a full meal the snack was good. Just question the £3.50 we paid for a small bowl of sweet potato chips?

The food varies from poor to good depending on when you visit. Their prices, for the quality of food, are far too high. There are other places nearby that offer better quality food at much lower prices. Best for youngsters rather than the older person.

We visited on a Sunday night and, although the place was almost empty when we arrived, the atmosphere was relaxed and more diners soon turned up. We arrived at 7pm and the website claims the kitchens shut at 8. This didn't seem to be the case as many people arrived after eight to eat. Worth checking out. Food is delicious... More

The food is excellent. This isn't a fine dining establishment, but it's rather higher quality gastro pub food. The menu has great choice and it all appears to be prepared fresh. I had cod and it was delicious. My acquaintances had haddock and lamb shoulder, they all remarked that it was delicious. The grounds and the restaurant itself are great... More

The Boathouse has for several years been our favourite place to eat on special occasions, take visitors and just eat ourselves. Our recent visit to celebrate an anniversary with family visiting from overseas was very disappointing. The food was ok but the service and general ambience has changed. Standards were very much lower than we have enjoyed in the past.
