We stayed in Seaview for the October half term week so the location of The Boat House was perfect, only 0.5 miles from our cottage! We ate here 3 times, all in the evening, twice as a family with 2 parents, 2 boys (aged 8 and 11) and 2 grandparents, and once just as a couple (good old grandparents!) which... More

The offer of two for one at any of the group pubs is too good to miss, three courses that taste good and portions are excellent. HOWEVER having enjoyed a fantastic meal with my partner at The Boathouse we took some friends down for a "two for one", the main course was not as tasty as the previous meal so... More

We went there whilst staying in Seaview and enjoyed the food, we found the staff to be welcoming and efficient and enjoyed its proximity to the beach. Surprised by one or two of the reviews because we had a good experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food. The service was excellent and a big thank you to Carol for fitting us in at short notice with a perfectly situated table. I had the vegetarian option which was pleasantly unique and not manufactured. Adored the Dads Army figures in the garden!

This is at the end of the day a walk in pub that sells food. That is of course if you wish to part with £4.90 for a pint of lager or £5.20 for a bottle of koppaburg cider. The kitchen will mysteriously close if they don't like the 'look' of you in the hope you will go away and... More

We were there on Bank holiday Monday evening. Short staffed and we wish we hadn't bothered. Waited ages for food to arrive and when it did arrive it was all wrong. Staff were very apologetic and sincere but sadly not good enough . We Stayed in Seaview for a week but did not return.

First visit here for a meal after a recommendation. Food was quite nice and the staff smiley and friendly. Just hated the table we were given right by a wall which was a shame as the views are lovely but nothing to be seen from this little table, no other tables available. Also just a tip, try not to spray... More

We found The Boat House by accident and as it is in such a great location decided to stop for lunch and could have stayed all day! The service was efficient and very friendly and the food delicious and excellent value for money.

My first time on the Isle of white and fancied some sea food. The boat house is a very nice pub restaurant and b & b. my wife enjoyed her crab an I had the hake. Both were caught that day and tasted very nice. Overall a very enjoyable evening with good service and and polite staff.

While on holiday at the Isle of Wight, we took a lovely walk from Seaview to Ryde and came across this lovely looking place. We decided to pop in for a drink and were shocked at the cost! £10.10 for a pint of lager and a cider was a bit extortionate in my opinion, but we handed over the money... More
