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...

Very impressed! Great friendly service and food was delicious! Good, quality food for children rather than cheap altenatives that some restaurants provide and a great selection to choose from! Will definitely be back!!

We visited with the kids for a family meal on Monday 16th. The food was very good especially considering we ordered from the two courses for two people at £14.99. Outstanding value. I have to point out that the service was fantastic. The young guy serving struck the perfect balance between attentive and unobtrusive. I'm sorry I didn't get his... More

We were with two friends and although they enjoyed their burgers my wife and I were very disappointed. The chilli was tasteless and my wife's risotto was oily not nice at all.... More

We were given an experience voucher for Christmas that entitled us to a three course meal and a bottle of wine and decided to use it tonight. We have had a wonderful meal from an extensive menu and would certainly recommend it as a very acceptable gift. The staff couldn't do enough to make the whole experience a memorable event.... More

Short story: went to the Boathouse yesterday with my boyfriend for lunch, paying nearly £50 for bad service, disgusting food and zero views of the Loch. Entirely not worth it. The restaurant was busy and the service was absolutely awful from the start, it was near impossible to get anyone's attention and when we did they were uninterested and keen... More

Lovely mal today on our first visit to this hotel beside the river boats. On arrival girl who greeted us was a bit off hand not very welcoming but waiter who served was very pleasant and we had beautiful fish and chips. Bit pricey but the surroundings are lovely and we did enjoy.

I've been visiting The Boathouse since its opening night, on the whole I find it excellent although more recently meals have not been so good. I went with my Mum for a meal tonight & it was excellent, the service was very good, waiter helpful & the barmaid who brought us our drinks was very cheery & chatty just the... More
