My husband and I took our visiting family and our children in for lunch on December 30th. We heard great things about the refurb and the service. However when we arrived it was obvious straight away they were short on staff. There was a 20 minute wait at the bar and once you managed to get served we were informed... More

We went in to see the refurb when it reopened end of November and were very pleasantly surprised at the decor, the ale on offer, the warm welcome and the chefs specials. That day we wandered around Wally and went back to the boathouse again! We've now been back 5 or 6 times. Every time good ale on (Good Old... More

With a fantastic setting overlooking the river, the newly refurbished Boat House is certainly worth a visit when in Wallingford. The pub is light and airy, with a seamless integration of modern and traditional décor, and is homely enough to sit awhile and enjoy a coffee, glass of wine or choose from their wide range of bottled beers and draught...

We (myself, our son 1 yr & 3 friends) visited the boat house as a catch up with friends meal as we had heard that there was a change in ownership and that they had turned the whole pace around. They wasn't wrong! The staff were really friendly, perlite and professional, greeted with a smile which is always nice. They... More

The Boathouse has always had a fabulous location but the new refurb and change in team has worked at last to turn this into a place worthy of the location. The decor is really homely and tasteful. The food was lovely but still good value - we look forward to trying more of the menu out. Service great and friendly.... More

I walked into the Boat house and was appalled by the changes. Imposing wide screen TVs everywhere showing Sky sport and all of the cozy niches that were great to sit in removed. I don't know what planet the other reviewers are on but this pub has just renovated itself downmarket . No doubt we will soon be seeing the... More
