The best Chinese I have had to date! Highly recommend a visit here. The toilets are downstairs below the restaurant. They were spotlessly clean. The food was fresh flavours and perfectly cooked.

An excellent gluten-free pizza. It is like eating the traditional one. We will surely visit again and taste other gluten-free items on the menu, including freshly baked bread and Chinese food.

As one of our party is coeliac, it can be difficult sometimes to find gluten free food anywhere, but the Boathouse's menu is FULLY gluten free which is a blessing. Having said that, you wouldn't know that. A mainly Chinese food menu is freshly prepared...More

There were ten of us including four kids under eleven yo. The staff were attentive and helpful when some fussy feeders (the kids) were making their selections. One of our party is a pizza nut and he declared the one he received as first class,...More
