Stayed here for three nights in the 'forth' room. Accomodation was great for the price. The breakfasts are super and the staff very friendly. Evenings in the restaurant was also good quality food and not overpriced. Would recommend.

Another escape night, swift check in, room clean & tidy. Nice walk to Croy before dinner. Could not go past my favourite starter, Stornoway Blacking Pudding & poached egg, to die for as usual. Had the pulled belly pork, nice, but not as good as the BBQ pork of my last visit. Lime pie for dessert which was lovely. A... More

My friend and I occasionally walk from Kirkintilloch to here, have lunch and walk back. It is an excellent place to eat and is always busy. Staff are very friendly and will do their best to accommodate you. Cyclists and walkers are welcome no matter how muddy you are. We have offered to take our boots off for fear of... More

Lovely place to stay and to eat. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Especially, Cameron who was there afternoon, evening and at breakfast. He was attentive (not overbearing), he knew the menu and what was used by way of ingredients and really couldn't do enough. He googled and made calls to help us on our 35 mile walk on... More

We used the £100 voucher given at Christmas for this weekend. We didn't know quite what to expect as this voucher covered evening meal, overnight stay and breakfast; for two! To say that our expectations were exceeded is an understatement! The rooms are large, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The dinner menu was extensive and the food delicious. Our server was... More

We got some Tesco Clubcard reward vouchers for this restaurant - and it is fantastic! We went once with the kids, and once ourselves. It is light and bright and airy, and the setting is lovely. The food is similar to the sister restaurant, 'The Wheelhouse', near Falkirk, but 'The Boathouse' is much lighter. I am gluten-free, and in most... More

Just been to the Boat House for a special meal with my husband. It was busy and we were asked to wait (next to the front doors) but we were shown to our table within a few minutes. Now my husband was assured of a marina view table when he booked the week before (and he told them it was... More
