Excellent restaurant, serving tasty food at reasonable places in a fantastic location alongside the river. The 2 female staff members had a fantastic and casual, but efficient manner. Will definitely go back

I took a family group to the Bathwick Boatman after getting the boat up river and being dropped off at the restaurant. I had my American family with me and they were in ore of the location. The choice of food at the Boatman is covered perfectly, Im always apprehensive of restaurants that have large menus, but the Boatman is... More

Three of us lunched at the Bathwick Boatman last Saturday and it was a mixed experience. Firstly, the food was quite good, the staff helpful and friendly and the restaurant, right on the bank of the River Avon, was in a lovely setting. Built mainly of timber with tudor-style gables, the restaurant is spread along the riverside with some hotel... More

We had the most wonderful time at our wedding breakfast/evening reception at the Bathwick Boatman on Friday. Rosy and her staff were wonderful! They were really helpful, friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a sit down meal for 50 and a further 30 joined us for an evening reception. Several of our guests commented... More

Was a little disappointed as was expecting this to edge out most others for a roast, alas, it didn't. The saving grace was the desert. It's also a little bit stuffy in terms of how it's presented and atmosphere which you can take or leave.

We had Sunday lunch there with friends and it was 5 star all around. The food was lovely, staff very friendly and attentive and a really lovely setting down by the river. The choices of traditional roast includes beef, lamb, pork and chicken - we had 3 of the 4 and all were excellent!

The Bathwick Boatman was the perfect place to spend my daughter's 21st Birthday meal. The view from the terrace is even more beautiful and picturesque than the pictures we saw online. We were greeted at the door by a lovely young woman who took us to our table - one outside with a view to die for! Wow! The menu... More

Dear Sophia M, Thank you for reviewing us, we are delighted to hear how much you all enjoyed your daughters birthday lunch despite it being an incredibly busy day for us.
