Whilst visiting Peterborough for the fabulous beer festival, we went on the boat for dinner and found the food, service and all round experience very nice. Only reason for not giving a 5 was the lack of hot plates on the tables to keep dishes warm and no one wiped out table after main course spillages. Toilets not great.

I can't understand anyone who would give this place 1 star, it is superb and one of our favourite places. The staff are excellent, attentive and good humoured. The food is just fab and we're returning next week. Highly recommended!

We went to this restaurant because we had heard it was authentic Thai food. What a joke! We like genuine Thai food but what we got was atrocious, everything was just overpowering with chilli. In all honesty a Scotch Bonnet chilli would be less fiery. We were also told that we couldn't have the menu selection we wanted as there... More

We take pride in our reputation and we do not feel that your review is a true reflection of our venue, food or service. If you really were so disappointed, when you were dining, you should have brought your... More

I was with a friend at Flag Fen Archaeological Park and he suggested to go for lunch here as he knew the place and there was a public car park only 2 min away. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere below deck in the "pub" was great, the staff was exceptionally friendly and the food was well... More

After regularly having a great experience at East we decided to try lunch. Well, there wasn't any. Just the same menu as the evening. There is a lunch deal advertised at the top of the stairway but no mention of it anywhere else. The menus need replacing because mine was greasy and stained. I was first in the restaurant. I...

Went here with friends and family for their sunday buffet. Excellent food as always [been a fair few times] and really enjoyed it. Service was good and not too intrusive [none of that~ 'are you enjoying your meal?' tosh]. A suggestion however, maybe change up the food selection. Returning customers won't see much in the way of variety. Or just... More

We've been eating here for years now but not often. We go to East to celebrate speacial family anniversaries. The food is lovely and our son loves that it is actually a boat and can see the swans swimming past. The waiter always seems to remember us and is helpful in guiding us with our food choices.
