We attended a special 50th wedding anniversary party at the Bathwick Boatman and had such a good time. Although we had lived in Bath for some 12 years this was the first time we had been here and what a pleasant surprise. The setting is idyllic, just by the river yet screened from everything by mature trees and shrubs. In... More

Table booked for 8 for Sunday Lunch but 2 of our party (OAP's) were late due to the horrendous weather and traffic conditions in Bath. It still gave us 2 hours to have lunch as the restaurant wanted the table back for people at 2:30pm (All of our table were seated by 12:40pm) This would have been fine but there... More

Sadly our kind and considerate service was misinterpreted by you on this occasion. The facts are your table was booked at 12noon until 2.15, as you kept apologising for the lateness of some of your party I checked the reservations book and assured you that the next booking wasn't until 2.30pm so there would be plenty of time. We could... More

A return visit on a sunny day with a table on the Balcony overlooking the river Avon and the boating station. Some very competent rowers and some hopeful paddlers! The welcome is friendly , but at this time of year book if it is a sunny day. There are some balcony tables which are in keen demand on warm lunch... More

I visited this restaurant on the 11/7/15 for my sister's Hen Do and had an amazing time. Apart from the delicious food that was served the service was top notch. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and if you go so will you :))

Found this here on TA. This deserves a high rating. Located at the river's edge, it is beautifully situated with very good quality food. We ordered the roast and sea bass. All came with fresh vegetables, a lovely assortment not just the proverbial peas. The meat was generous and of good quality. I choose the cheesecake for dessert, not disappointed.... More

Excellent choice of typical Europeen/English cuisine in a nice decor. Be aware though that it is not located in the center of Bath and that there is nothing else to visit in the immediate surrounding. On the other side there is a free parking. So I recommend that you go with your car. I also recommend that you call to... More
