Having just moved to Bath, I am trying to sample all the local restaurants. So when I had visitors from overseas, I booked the Bathwick Boatman for Sunday lunch, thinking it would be a special experience for them. I had seen the restaurant from the river and it looked a delightful venue. We were allocated a table on the balcony... More

We are sorry you didn't like your lunch here, it seems by your review, that there was a miscommunication about the menu on offer. We are sorry this was such a problem for your party's enjoyment of our lovely place. If you had said something at the time we would have done our best to make it all fine. We... More

We had a very nice evening in this lovely, welcoming restaurant and had the pleasure of eating outside overlooking the river. It was a nice 15-20 minute stroll from our B&B on Henrietta Street. Nice, diverse menu, good service and a pretty, quiet spot. Will definitely return.

Splendid spot literally on the river bank with plenty of parking (though only about a 10 - 15 min flat walk from town centre.) Good varied menu with specials that change frequently, a very pleasant owner/chef and a really charming lady in charge of the restaurant.. There is outside seating on the verandah for when the weather's good and Bath... More

Went here last week for a casual meal to celebrate a 21st birthday birthday. A couple of hiccups but otherwise the food was great, the staff attentive and the setting by the river very pretty. Would definitely go again.

Thank you so much to Rosy and her team, excellent food and service. Their attention to detail helped to make Greg and Ellie's wedding day so special, nothing was too much trouble. Riverside location is amazing, swans and cygnets gently gliding past - oh and the golden lab, complete with stick, who was determined to get in on the wedding... More

Amazing location .....a ten minute leisurely stroll from bath city centre....there is a small car park. Beautiful Wooden boathouse right on the river with a lovely balcony. We'd booked a table inside but it was such a nice day we decided to sit outside. The service started off well- drinks arrived fairly quickly but as it filled up with lunchtime... More

I really don't have a bad word to say about the Bathwick Boatman. The food and service were absolutely excellent and the atmosphere couldn't be beat. We ate here twice when we were last in Bath, we liked it so much, and are already looking forward to our next trip back.

This is such a little gem! Unpretentious, relaxed atmosphere in a very pretty riverside location. And the food is delicious. It's well worth trying the specials too. On this occasion we were served the tastiest Cornish lobster. Highly recommended.

Its always difficult when making a booking for 30 people, you try to find somewhere interesting and where the food is of a good quality. Booking was easy, Ben and Rosy answered every request quickly, they were very flexible on final numbers and didn't even ask for a deposit. We arrived on a lovely Sunday afternoon, having spent a few... More
