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.

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

Food inedible sent it back. Staff very apologetic, but managed never apologised and just walked away after saying it was just one of those things. Would advise no one to eat there.

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.

Really liked the feel of this pub when we first walked in, lovely location overlooking the river and seemed busy. My hat goes off to the young girl running the bar, she did an excellent job and had to ask the manager to help serve when there was a queue, instead of him helping on his own accord. The main...

Had lunch at this pub. We had lovely weather so we sat outside at the side of the river. Menu was varied and well priced...food was delicious. Next time we are in Wallingford we will definitely head back here....

We had a meal here today, Very long wait (almost an hour), average food but lovely location. Too many dogs inside, all over the food area so impossible to avoid. /One waitress often stroked the dogs when returning to the kitchen area after delivery food, then reappeared almost immediately with other people's food. Definitely did not wash her hands in... More

Following a ladies football cup final 55 players and supporters went here. We had booked in advance and advised we could be accomodated. With each food order we were given a number. This worked brilliantly, the 55 orders came very quickly, and the food was good quality, hot and very reasonably priced. Overall it was very good, the lady bringing... More
