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

Recently went for an evening meal with friends. There is a large choice to select from and none of us were disappointed with what we had. All three courses were served promptly and the quality of the food was superb. The food is very reasonably priced as were the drinks. The restaurant is quite small and gives lovely views directly...

Excellent food and great value for money. Extensive menu and lovely dining area. Service was good and accommodating for the 11 of us. The vegetarian options were less favoured by some. My girlfriends steak was the thickest cut sirloin I've ever seen.

2nd stay over 2 yrs at this location, our party also used the adjacent Pound B&B. This is a lively social venue well patronised by local and visitor alike, it also serves as the entertainment venue for a nearby campsite. So I guess if you want a quiete venue then check what events bookings etc are likely to be concurrent.... More

The menu is extensive with a great selection and having visited several times can honestly say the food is the best in the area. We cannot fault it and the staff are very efficient and friendly. I cannot understand how anyone could write a bad review about the food. Excellent location also by the river. Have not actually stayed there.
