I booked this restaurant for a birthday lunch on a recommendation from a friend. I was not disappointed. When I booked I mentioned it was for a birthday lunch and could I bring a cake. Yes, of course was the answer. This helpfulness set the scene. I duly delivered the cake, candles and matches with a helium balloon the previous... More

After reading all the good reviews on here we booked a table at this restaurant and this place exceeded all expectations. The location is brilliant (we took a taxi as we were staying out of town and it is slightly away from the centre of Bath) - so calm and peaceful, with a gorgeous veranda overlooking the river. The decor... More

Lovely meal. As we were a party of 10 we pre-booked our meal. We were given plenty of choice and everyone was very pleased with the choices they made. Rosie could not have been more helpful. The service was very good especially considering we were a party of 10 and there was a larger party eating at the same time.... More

We enjoyed a very nice meal at this restaurant on a one-day visit to Bath. The quality of the food was excellent and the setting very pleasant. There is seating outside overlooking the river but, if you wish to reserve an outside table, make sure you ask for this specifically in your booking. Parking in the streets around is somewhat...

I cannot thank the fantastic Bathwick Boatman crew enough for such a wonderful time on my 30th birthday on 14th June. The food was delicious and so fresh with a great range of choices for meat and fish lovers and veggies alike. Great wine and beer choices too, lots of smiling faces at the end of the meal! It was...

A magical and peaceful restaurant on the riverside with parking. Situated above a boathouse with an outside terrace at both lunchtime and on summer evenings. A delectable menu with a strong influence on Italian and Spanish cuisine with a wide selection based on free range meat, vegetables from local suppliers within the Bath area and delicious seafood and fish delivered...

Found by chance on a trip to Bath, the sun shining, the river beautiful and drifting past, the service and welcome matching the perfect atmosphere, and the food very good indeed. We sat outside overlooking the water on a pretty balcony. The menu is varied and creative, with some very tempting options such as confit of duck, octopus, and sea-bass... More

Pleasant relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Enjoyable food; classy chips! Makes a change for anyone wanting to eat away from the city centre.

I find it difficult to sum up and rate this place as it was not what I expected based on reviews on Tripadvisor. I had in mind a beautiful timbered converted riverside house with sweeping gardens and a fairly formal restaurant. Without question, the view is lovely, overlooking the river surrounded by trees, that I can confirm. The restaurant is... More

Dropped by late-ish on the off chance of a table for 4 for Sunday Bank Holiday lunch. Welcomed immediately and accommodated on the outside balcony over the river. Plan, due to an impending dinner, materialised as 2 starters plus beers, bottle of wine and coffees. Patė excellent, whitebait, prawns also perfect. Lovely fresh bread choice. Bill for 4 came to...
