Great relaxed pub with good food and beer!

We went last night for an informal pub meal. Good music on the pa, delicious local beer and the fish dishes were tasty. Chips were good too. Would like to go again.

About twenty of us descended on the Boathouse to celebrate a wedding and watch the Six Nations rugby on March 21st. We really lucked out when found this boozer, great staff, the locals were very welcoming plus excellent beer and food. If you want a relaxed vibe with eclectic decor and a timeless view look it up!

Great atmosphere, great employees, nice drink selection and simple menu. The Burger they do is very good and tasty in a Ciabatta roll. The outside area is good too, in that the area up top to which you can walk out is sheltered and non smoking, but you can go downstairs to a patio area with tables. The view is... More

We had a very nice Sunday lunch here in January, great well prepared beef and cooked just right. Lovely views out across the water and a chef who clearly knows what he's doing make for a nice meal out. Highly recommended.

We went here recently as a family outing of six. We pre-booked for Sunday lunch in order to get the nice river view table and we certainly weren't disappointed with the view. The food was very nice pub roast food with a good selection of vegetables, nice roasties and a yorkshire pudding. The accompanying ales were well kept and very... More

Lovely pub occupying a fab elevated spot overlooking Falmouth harbour. Nothing fancy decor wise, but a great range of beers and cider, and a good array of typical pub fayre on offer. We received a friendly welcome and sat at a table in the main eating area. Our food was delicious with good portions we noticed on all the meals... More

Went with friends on a wet windy evening. Nice friendly staff. Menu limited which is good as it means food is being cooked from fresh. The deep fried squid at £8.00 was excellent and a huge portion. The plaice with mash and vegetables was absolutely delicious although not cheap at £16. Good pub food with a nice atmosphere.

A small pub that excels. I was working in the area and was looking for some tasty food, This time Iw as not disappointed. They obviously follow the simple method of a menu of a few items but cook them very well. I had a steak that was tender, tasty and cooked perfectly, My colleague ordered a handmade burger that...

Had a fantastic lunch here, the food was excellent and full of flavour and well beyond what you would normally find in a pub and more along the lines of a higher end gastro pub. Service was also very good and very reasonably priced. At the top of the towns high street it also has wonderful views over the inner... More

We enjoyed having drinks here. The view was magnificent. The grandsons enjoyed the board games provided. The games kept them occupied while adults enjoyed the superb view and conversation.
