Super restaurant, family run, great value, lovely location - and someone in the kitchen who knows what they're doing. Well worth seeking-out.

We had a wonderful dinner. The setting was beautiful and the owner delightful. The original owner was actually having dinner and joined us for a conversation on the amazing history of the building .

The Bathwick Boatman is tucked away in a quiet area along the river, providing a lovely setting and ambiance. Service is clearly a priority, with an attentive and friendly staff who went out of their way to accommodate us. Our food was delicious as well, making dining here a wonderful memory. I would definitely return.

Stunning location right on the river for my husbands 40th. We had drinks on the veranda overlooking the river and then a two course buffet for about 40 - 50 people. The Boathouse has a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. The food was tasty and plentiful and the staff were friendly and efficient. Excellent value for money.

I am always a little nervous when my wife and I visit a restaurant of my choosing. I don't want her to be disappointed. On this occasion though she was delighted; it was me who didn't enjoy as much as I would have wished. The '4' is a mix of a '5' from my wife and a '3' from me... More

The restaurant is right on the river which is wonderful to sit and watch the boats go by. The food great home cooked food with a twist. We managed three courses and would recommend every one. We walked back to our hotel with a feeling of contentment.

Slow, indifferent service and disappointing food. Although we arrived in good time for our dinner reservation, the service was slow and both the main course and pudding I wanted to order had run out. The one remaining portion of the lamp chump was meagre and fatty - a better restaurant would not have served it. We gave up on pudding... More

Oh no this is so disappointing to read! I'm so sorry you didn't like your meal - and we went to the effort of preparing fish goujons for you as you requested when booking the table - which then weren't ordered. It was nice of you to tip generously, we are just very sorry that you left feeling disappointed this... More

I had my wedding reception here last Saturday and it was just perfect! Everyone commented on how good the food was and the atmosphere was wonderful - relaxed, fun and easy. Rosy and the staff were absolutely brilliant both in the run up and on the day. So helpful, so welcoming and so friendly. We couldn't have asked for a... More
