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

Inside was worse,there were white marks on the walls where the paint has peeled,there were flies everywhere so it was fly central,the toilet doors opened towards you so... More

We had dinner here and also had the option to pitch our tent but we were glad we didn't. Food was poor and we sat next to a window and light that was full of dead flies. Seating was all ripped and generally looked very tired. The staff were great though. very friendly and accommodating. Considering the pub looked dirty... More

We visited twice while we were at the Hay festival.mthe landlord was very welcoming, friendly and the staff were lovely to our children. The food was fantastic, especially the fish dishes, and the children's menu was lovely: high quality food in small portions, not cheap, frozen deep fried stuff like you often get.

As a Hospitality Trainer/Assessor I always attempt to give a balanced view of any reviews I write. But this will be the exception to my rule. Having visited The Boat Inn with my wife I can find no reason to give any negative comments. I arrived first and was greeted in a friendly welcoming manner by the host. When my... More

Stumbled across this one when looking for a hotel in area - so caught them a bit on the hop. Lovely location and all the staff were very friendly throughout stay. Saturday night so very busy in bar and restaurants - but still made to feel welcome. Extensive menu - so plenty of choice, looking at other peoples meals kept... More

Stumbled across the Boat Inn whilst out for a Sunday drive. The food was very tasty and generous (Sunday dinner). We chose to sit outside on a sunny day and the river views and tranquil setting made a perfect afternoon.

We were staying in the area and passed by this pub thinking it didn t look up to much and could not possibly be near the river. How wrong we were when we returned after calling elsewhere which only had a Sunday roast on offer. We only wanted to snack which we were assured was fine by the chap behind... More

There is a large choice of meals and desserts at this pub by the river. Our party tried 4 different main courses which were all excellent and 3 different desserts, again all excellent. The prices are very reasonable too. Will definitely visit again when in the area
