We have visited The Boathouse on a number of occasions and it is one of our favourite restaurants to visit as a family. The location is great with beautiful views of the marina, the staff are very friendly and welcoming, the food is delicious and it certainly provides value for money. I cannot fault The Boathouse in any way, and... More

Lack of organisation started at the time of booking. Twenty minutes late in getting our table and generally left to hang about waiting on it becoming available. No apology for the wait. One waitress asked if she could help but then said she didn't know how the bookings worked... Why come over to a crowd waiting at the front door... More

Had lunch with some friends for a birthday and delighted we chose The Boathoude. Food was really delicious, service was excellent & the staff were super lovely to my friend as it was her birthday. Won't be the last time we visit here.

Family Sunday lunch with the kids, six of us in total. The location is fantastic with great views across the canal to the hills beyond. The building, although modern, blends in nicely and is welcoming. Inside, the decor is nice although showing some signs of ageing. The menu is very good, varied with a small set menu option at a...
