This is the 4th or 5th time that I have eaten at The Boat House and each time it has been enjoyable. Four of us had lunch and chose from the specials and each of us were pleased with our choice. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the staff are friendly.

We expected the majority of the menu to be sea food but the other options were incredibly limited. They had sold out of a lot of items which meant we were limited even more to what we could have. The kids menu we were told consisted of items that were 'lite bites' but the only thing suitable was the ham... More

Great setting, right on the water, especially lovely if nice weather. Inside bar area had good atmosphere, fine selection of beer, snacks etc. Accommodation was decent standard especially rooms overlooking the... More

Overpriced hotel with below standard rooms that need new furniture. Evening meal okay but waited 60 minutes from placing order to receiving food on second and last night. No manager on duty at check out time the following day to discuss complaint.
