Disappointed with the slow service, waited for over an hour . Food was good but the wait was not acceptable. Complained to the Staff who were not very understanding and at times unhelpful. Also ran out of cutlery and did not do the orders in the right sequence. Been before and had similar service so won't be returning.

Called in today with my son on way home from Hay Festival. All staff very friendly and welcoming. Waitress very helpful when my son (age 10) wanted the rump steak, she told him it was a very large steak! He went for the sirloin instead. It was a huge steak and he ate almost all of it and said it... More

We have eaten at the boat in on a number of occasions, and I keep meaning to write a review. Most recent visit was mid May with 8 lads for some food after a walk. We booked very last minute and they managed to find space for us in the bar area - with the added bonus that we could... More

Can't say enough good things about this place. Visited the Boat Inn today with my family. Partner had been there previously, so took me and our daughter today. Very friendly staff, good service and the food is totally immense. Huge portions and, considering this and the overall standard of service, friendliness and excellent food, the price was more than acceptable.... More

Called in on way home wish we had not wasted our money. It was not very good at all although I suspect some people will say different because it seems they have lots of good reviews. Well iam glad because every one has their own opinions and we just did not enjoy anything about this place. Food seemed to be... More

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.
