Excellent meal

Went with a group of 9 friends and had a really excellent meal. Everyone enjoyed the food. Good service, friendly staff and although it was a packed Friday night we did;t have to wait overly long for our food to arrive.

It's three years since we last visited, and reviewed, the Boathouse at Parkgate. Some places change over time, but this venue hasn't, and so I thought it was worth mentioning in a further review update. It's still excellent, and worthy of a high rating, for food, presentation and service. On this occasion we ate outside, as it was a pleasant... More

Excellent Sunday lunch, we had the roast pork.Food served speedily. Friendly staff who knew what beers and ciders were available. The car park was very busy and we were afraid we were in for a wait and the place would be packed. There was definitely not a sense of being crowded. Great views over the estuary and whoever decided on... More

Came here for Sunday lunch for my second visit with my partner. He had not been before so thought it would be a nice treat. Food was good the only downside was my roast pork was on the cold side even on arrival at the table. Had a lovely table with a view though :)
