Home cooked food, great value

Visited for lunch with my Dad and daughter. Food is freshly cooked and plentiful and the price is very reasonable. Super choice and I love the fact that you can see the kitchen. Sunday lunch is also very good value.

Just had a great meal here - two couples and a teenager. We had a drink while choosing our meals from the large selection on the blackboard and then took our drinks to where we were sat - at a very good table looking out over the car park at the sunset and garden. After a reasonable time, our meals... More

We tend to use this restaurant for special occasions and once again it did not disappoint us. My daughter and her fiancé who were with us and use to fine dining were extremely impressed with the excellent quality of the food and service.

To update my review of 2012, the standards have been maintained, food prepared from fresh ingredients from an extensive menu, with friendly service. With the repeat trip -I recommend that you try it for yourself. Good size car park several rooms and outside tables too. Rooms can be booked for functions. Standard wine list and drinks menu.

Visited with family, food excellent as was the service (only booked on the morning of the meal). Price very reasonable with an excellent themed choice to suit the occasion. Lots of specials available and the desserts were scrumptious and plentiful. Nice atmosphere, plenty of room and no feeling of being rushed.

Have been to The Boat several times in the past year and have never been disappointed. The service and staff attitude has been first class as has the cuisine, cooked by the owner himself. The menu is alive and bursting with new ideas and there is always something new to try out. I took a couple of ex pats for... More
