We have been here on several Sunday's for lunch and can honestly say that everyone of them has been good. Home cooked food and a good selection of sweets. Value for money with friendly staff, good service, what more could we ask for!

We visited with friends on a Saturday evening, luckily we had reserved a table as it was very busy. We were well looked after as soon as we arrived & had a table looking out over the river Wye and surrounding countryside. We all chose the steaks, three Rib Eyes came on the bone, we had not seen that before... More

Visited with a friend for weekday lunch, could not fault anything, proper home cooked food served by really friendly and attentive staff, excellent portion size we thoroughly enjoyed everything we had, the wonderful view across the river was an added bonus, will certainly be returning.

Simple, not posh, with really good home cooked style pub grub. Not a restaurant, not a gastro-pub just honest food served with a smile in a pub environment. Good view right on river too and lovely garden area.... If you are hungry it's well worth a visit. Great kids meal options too....

Our group of 10 took the short walk from the bridge campsite to The Boat Inn last weekend. I had booked a table for our party a week or so before and the great service started on the phone! On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who showed me to where we would be eating,a lovely room with lovely... More

Having pitched at the campsite next door, we headed to the Boat Inn for our dinner. The restaurant has some fantastic views over the Wye if you are lucky enough to get a windows seat; we were a large party and so we had to sit further in, but we were made to feel really welcome. The menu was quite... More

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
