Great views

So much nicer inside than anticipated. A limited but very nice menu, and the food was very good. Fabulous views, friendly staff, and a nice atmosphere. I'd be happy if this was my local!

What a little gem!! We visited on a recommendation from friends and I am so glad we did! Good beer, excellent food and stunning views in a traditional pub setting. Highly recommended.

It didn't seem like there was a great deal of choice on the menu so we chose the burger and, believe me, it was AMAZING. Service was good and the views were amazing. Only complaint is the boss supports Tottenham but apart from that, all good :P I would definitely go back.

We owe our excellent visit to the Boathouse to the recommendation from the man in the paper shop, otherwise we would have stuck with one of the many eateries in the centre of Falmouth. Instead we walked up the High Street past the many independent shops and kept going til we came to the Boathouse. On arrival we were unsure... More

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
