What a very pleasant location, a patio alongside the river with tables and chairs and that with good service from really nice staff makes for an enjoyable time. Lots of room inside too, a decent menu and good beer.

Fantastic venue at historical Wallingford. Fantastic position on the Thames. Great view, great service from bar staff and generous meals. A must to visit for a drink or meal with family or friends.

We ventured on a lovely walk along the Thames path to Wallingford. I had it in my mind that I wanted to sit and eat a pub lunch by the Thames. We had seen that the Boat House was our ideal location! We were comfortable with the relaxed atmosphere, and sat in the sun watching the ducks, boats and rowers... More

We stopped off here for a drink after work. The pub was nice and clean and the drinks are reasonably priced. Located next to the river makes it a great place on a mild evening, we will be back.

Came to the pub for a family lunch. The pub is nicely situated on the Thames. The menu looks good, and generally the food is OK. However the service was very slow, taking 35 minutes for the starters to arrive. The beer was also expensive for an out-of-London pub at over £4 for a pint.
