Recent visit for lunch and a pint. The draught beer was quite good but limited choice. Bar area is rather tired. Food prices have risen since our visit last year and all agreed the food was fairly ordinary. Not bad value for money but cannot really recommend this time.

Booked a table for 10. Was able to order at table rather than at the bar. All food orders taken correctly and all tasted great! Friendly service. Will definitely go again!

We live locally and visit The Boat House regularly. We've had a couple of fairly decent meals since the refurbishment but we visited on 2 Jan 2016 and the service was terrible, the food was terrible and we were very disappointed. I don't know if it was because there was skeleton staff or what but it couldn't have been much... More

This pub has a good range of drinks and a lovely setting, but the food is not worth the price that is charged. The staff are always very friendly and attentive and happy to help with any needs. A great place to sit outside by the river and have a glass of wine - not the best for a meal... More

Fantastic position but totally spoiled by having loud music (outside as well - even in bad weather with nobody there), large TV screens and gaming machines ... Food fine but nothing special.

We held our Christmas party at The Boat House on Saturday 5th December. We had sixty guests and it was fantastic. The menu choice and food was excellent (and hot too), the food, together with the tables were presented beautifully, and the staff could not have been more helpful. Thoroughly enjoyable evening and highly recommended, thanks to Naomi and team.... More

Load of us ate here this week for the first time since the revamp. First off the lady that served us (Hannah was it?) was incredibly friendly and the service was more on par to a restaurant than a pub. Half of us had a variety of the burgers on offer and the rest had sharing platters each. The portions... More

We went there with an elderly lady with dementia and the lovely lady serving us could not have been more friendly and understanding. Well done for your patience and consideration. Five star service.

Limited menu, poor quality and overpriced for what's on offer. Went for lunch with my sister. She ordered a fish finger sandwich, when it came out it was two small cheap fish fingers lost in two slices of stale bread. When she highlighted this to the waitress she was told that they were made to 'spec'. In fairness she did... More
