Great Food, Great Wine, Great Beer.....We have eaten here a few times now and the staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is always good, one of the best 'blue' sirloins I have eaten!! The setting is lovely if your lucky enough to be able to sit outside, a fantastic view across the solent.

This is the 3rd year in a row of visiting isle of wight & this is always the restaurant we return to. Keep meaning to write a review so here it is. We booked for a table of 14 on a Sunday evening. Every meal served (including the children's) was perfect It is not a cheap pub meal, but you... More

What better on a fine sunny afternoon than to enjoy a meal and a couple of beers looking out across the water. Such is the Boat House right on the shore line at Seaview. We managed to visit on a day when there was not only great food and beer but also live music and things for the kids to... More

What a view?! Great buzz; a guitarist quietly playing away outside where a bbq was in full swing. Inside, where we were, great lunch, very good and speedy service, great roast beef with the added bonus of Doombar (if you have not tried this bitter you are missing a treat). The only downside is that because it is good it... More

Food was good but on the expensive side, staff could have been more attentive and helpful seeing as its only 1of 2 places to dine out in Seaview Staff seemed more interested in the locals than the people on holiday Could have done with background music to try and create a atmosphere

Four of us stopped for lunch at the Boat House. It boasts a nice décor and location with lovely views across the water to Portsmouth (on a sunny day). Food is of a good high standard for a pub. Nice varied choices on menu of fish, meat and vegetarian options. Portioning is of good size too. Staff behind the bar... More

Stayed in the Boathouse's family room with lovely corner sea views in a nice quiet location at the end of the esplanade. The room has lovely tasteful décor, comfortable beds and good bathroom. A children's sofabed completed the set-up which again was very comfortable, although taking up a good portion of the available space in the room once out. The... More

We stopped here for a pudding after taking a walk from the restaurant we had eaten dinner at. Wish we had found it earlier as it was really nice and would definitely had gone back for a meal but it was our last evening. There was a good atmosphere, service was friendly and quick, and the desserts were really tasty.... More

Myself and my family stopped at this pub on Sunday for lunch. It was very busy but we still managed to get a table to fit us all around. The drinks were quite expensive but I suppose you are paying for the views. The food looked very nice but we decided not to eat as our grandchildren were very hungry... More
