Just Ok

We visited last Sunday and whilst the food was good, the service at the bar where you had to order your food and drinks was very slow which somewhat marred the visit, a few more staff on the bar would have been good.

We started going to The Boathouse several weeks ago on quiz night thinking we would be the oldest team, which we are but we were greeted by Ant and Tara and made to feel very welcome. The food and service is great and we all really enjoy ourselves. It is also nice to go somewhere that is spotless so well... More

Drink, Lime and soda no flavour no bite. Steak burger dry. Lettuce limp end of tomato no onion. Coleslaw warm an too much mayo. Side salad limp warm lettuce, 1/4 of tomato chopped small 1 slice Q and far too much dressing for a small portion. Not cool and crisp. Really good onion rings best I've had and lovely fluffy...

Although cheap the food quality was poor. Tiny sharing platers, we sent them back because the sausages were still pink. The nachos and cheesy garlic bread were average. Shame because the pub is nice inside and is in a great location. Cider/beer choice was good.

We went here on Sunday evening for a drink. When we walked to the bar, the barman had to be summoned to come and serve us. He was unhappy to be called away from what he was doing, as he didn't seem to want to serve us. I went to the bar to order another drink and the barman had... More

What a great place to be on a Thursday, friendly staff, good food and quick service with the added entertainment of a quiz and a wonderful view of Thames. Where else would you want to be.

Very good menu and reasonably priced. Food was excellent and service efficient and friendly. Large space both inside and out with mixed sized tables to suit clients as groups of friends or families or couples. Outside the tables are in the gardens going down to the river so very pleasant on a sunny day. Busy but staff were friendly and... More

My wife and I live local to the Boat House, we visit the establishment on a regular basis both as a couple and with friends/family and as I have said, it never fails to impress. We were users of the establishment prior to its refurbishment at the later end of last year, but to say the least, the improvements in... More

Lovely place, very friendly prompt service. My wife and I had a fabulous meal. I expected to pay a lot more. After the meal a lovely walk down the river. That was an evening to repeat. Thank you.
