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

Had lunch here on 03/02/14 with my husband, as usual it was up to standard. Lovely place inside, helpful friendly staff, great food and extremely pleasant surroundings, a definite must to visit. Even better in the summer when al fresco dining is possible.

My daughter and her partner treated us to lunch here, they have been several times, and always had a lovely meal, and I must agree, I couldn't fault the food and the setting on the river is beautiful. The portions are very generous, I am pleased I didn't order a starter I think I would have struggled to finish my... More
