Went to the boat house at 7.30pm for a drink and snack. Me and my sister chose to order a woo woo cocktail each. I saw on the menu that there were pitchers available so we opted for that to share. I watched the bar maid put 2x 25 ml of vodka and the same of archers into the pitcher.... More

Have been here quite a few times, but tonight was very disappointing. Just gone 830pm and tried to order some food to be told, very nonchalantly, even though the kitchen usually closes at 845pm they were so busy they closed at 745pm! Had to get all the orders in! I work in the industry and found this the strangest comment... More

Welcoming staff, and nice to see its so dog friendly in and out of the pub. The new manager is a breath of fresh air seeing the potential and very accommodating. The food portions are huge and value for money and very tasty. I have seen the changes in over. 40 years in visiting this town and got to say... More

This pub is a 'must visit' if you are visiting Wallingford to witness its many charms. Set on a riverside location right next to historic Wallingford Bridge this pub offers good food and very inexpensive lagers, in fact the cheapest in the area! There is nothing better than sitting on the riverside patio on a Summer's evening, with the chance... More

To put it simply the boat house has changed hands and every now and then they get it just right but as with all places it comes and goes but this recent visit just shown myself and my friends that it's good. Originally grabbing food - wild boar burger - we were greeted by the staff (blonde hair woman) who... More

We went to the Boathouse for lunch and were told that there would be a 40 minute wait for food. We decided to wait but the food did not arrive until an hour later. The food itself was fresh and very good in particular the steak and kidney pie which was excellent , lovely shortcrust pastry and a generous filling.... More

I think this place has recently been turned around, sounds like it used to be pretty bad. The staff couldn't be keener or more enthusiastic, I would be so proud of them if I was their boss. We had a lovely time watching the boats mooring along the river (several near disasters!) The food was good and the specials were... More

So I went to see for myself and sure enough this place is nothing like the rough, run... More
