I booked The Boathouse for a special family meal as the food is always of a high standard, we were not disappointed, there were 16 in our party, the service was excellent, Wayne the Manager took care of all our needs and Rachel the waitress was a star!!! I had taken a Birthday Cake down and it was presented with... More

Ask for a table with a view--it makes the experience more interesting. We went (2nd visit) on Sunday and had a group of 7, and they were a little busy that night. The food is good , but the beer selection is kind of limited. Still, it has a nice atmosphere, so we would probably return there.

Courteous hard working staff have the right attitude here , The food was well cooked and fresh. We had the Dover soles @ £23 plain grilled with fat chips a very large fish of around 20 ounces. Makes this great value, all perfectly cooked. In our opinion The Boathouse is the best food in Parkgate

This was my first visit (and last) to the Boat House after hearing good things. I took my family and Mum and Dad for a treat. My initial impression was good with a friendly, engaging waiter. We ordered and the food came out quickly and efficiently. However, my Dad had ordered the mixed grill which was £18. The sausage was... More

Five of us met for lunch at this restaurant on 5th November. A party of 20walkers arrived after us. I commented that we should place our order before this group. However, the walkers must have pre ordered since they were served before us. In all, our lunch took us 2 and a half hours, which is unacceptable. We hadn't ordered... More

I had lunch here with four friends yesterday, in the restaurant area. We had a table by the window which I'd hoped for because the view is so nice, especially on a sunny day, which it was. The table we were shown to was set for four but this was hastily remedied. Two of our party were late arriving which... More

Food was delicious, I had the chicken with parma ham which was lovely. Great standard of food. Eton mess for dessert which was yummy too! Staff were so... More

I've been here on a number of occasions and I always seem to gravitate to the burgers as they are so good. Although approx 1.5" thick they are always juicy. Hand cut chips were also nice. I ordered mine with extra pulled pork and Shropshire blue cheese (Orange in colour btw!). This pile of carbs is definitely not finger food.... More
