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.

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.

Good food, very pleasant surroundings, can be a bit pricey but check the board for specials of the day.

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

I have been going to the Boat for years and have always enjoyed their meals, indeed last night's Hake was splendid. The fly in the proverbial ointment for me and several others is the lack of a printed menu. The selection is generous but the scrum near the blackboard is intolerable. I enjoy taking my time to choose a meal... More

I was one of a party of eleven who ate at the Boat last Saturday evening for a family celebration.. Everyone was very satisfied with both the food and the service. The menu has an extensive choice, particularly the starters and mains, with a wide range of prices, probably slightly higher than average pub prices, but that's because the food... More

I attended a Christmas function here recently and was a little disappointed by the food. We had a variety of dishes at our table, but none of us could really say that the food was outstanding. I can never understand why waiters bring out everyone's hot starters first and filter out the cold dishes afterwards, leaving polite guests with plates... More
