We went there just the two of us for dinner, lovely setting with great seating area outside, nachos were lovely, Risotto very nice, I had the burger - maybe a little greasy but still very tasty - will def be back. Service was very quick and and staff lovely.

Decent food, good choice of beers, reasonable prices and gorgeous location for a terrace, right on the bank of the Thames. Visited on a Windy 500 Mystery Camping Weekend with a big group. Ideal spot for a lazy Saturday lunchtime snack and drink.

Went down to the boathouse for an evening meal to enjoy the setting by the river but not expecting anything great in the food line. However we were pleasantly surprised and had three excellent steaks, two sirloin and one fillet. The accompaniments were the usual fries, peas and chips. Unbeknown to us when we decided to go, Thursday night is... More

Had dinner after a day canoeing down the Thames. Arrived quite late but staff were very helpful and despite the large group and it being a busy Saturday evening we got everything quickly and at the same time. Food was good, and the service was great. Plan to go back soon.

Amazing pub with food. I would recommend this place to anyone. Stopped here by chance as a family travelling by boat on the Thames for our holiday. Service is great. Good choice on menu and a specials board. Try the pork belly, the best I have had in a long time, delicious and just fell apart. Chicken dishes good as... More

Been for food a couple of times and tea and cake others. Food is average but charged at a premium for what it is given the location. You basically pay for the view. The cake was bland and dry and nothing special. Probably been sat out for a little while and not at its freshest. We still go back as... More

Went here on Friday for a pre anniversary meal with hubby, all I can say is Excellent. Staff were fantastic, service was great and food was even better, my hubby said that his steak was the best he had ever had, great compliment. Very family orientated and dog friendly too, a must go to establishment for all.

Ideally placed by Wallingford Bridge, good outdoor seating area to sit and watch the activities on The Thames whilst enjoying a cool beer or glass of your favourite tipple. Eating, reminded me of a 'fast food' outlet, all cutlery, all sauces (far more than I even knew existed) is their plastic bottles to be found on central condiments table, almost... More

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
