Recently stayed at a nearby B&B and had the delight of eating at this establishment for 3 nights in a row. Emma, the landlady is a genuinely nice person as are the staff, nothing was ever too much trouble. Great location on the edge of the River Wye. Finally, the food! Probably the best steaks we have ever had, particularly... More

The portions are HUGE and the food is absolutely amazing! by far the best meal we've had in a long time.... We called in hoping to get something to eat after travelling up from wales to a race meeting, there were 6 adults and 1 15 month old baby. They fitted us in no problem at all at 7pm on... More

This place should be fantastic - amazing location next to the river in a beautiful part of Herefordshire. Instead, this place is absolutely appalling. The staff are friendly enough but the food quality was absolutely terrible and completely overpriced. The whole establishment needs completely gutting and redecorating to bring it back to life.

Called in to The Boat Inn as we had a couple of hours to kill and wanted a meal. The bar man was lovely and welcoming. Nicest I've met for a long time. The food was amazing. I had sirloin steak medium cooked which couldn't have been cooked better plus it was huge. Delicious home cooked chips, and lovely presentation.... More

Because I had a long way to drive , only wanted a snack, or as it turned out just a starter, my Dad had the Sunday Roast. The battered Brie starter ,my Mom and I ordered, was first and foremost, delicious, secondly a... More

The Boat is our local & we've eaten there many times, including recently. I am renowned for being fussy/critical but I can honestly say I've enjoyed all of the meals from the extensive menu at the Boat. For a village rural pub, the menu choice is amazing and always cooked & presented to a high standard. I have many favourites,... More

Visited the Boat on way from The Midlands to Wales. Have been using it as a pit stop for many years so was looking forward to visiting it again. It was shabby, looked as bough fit could do with a good clean, needed re-decorating and the blown light bulbs needed replacing. The food portions were huge - much too big... More
