It wasn't bad. It wasn't good either. I wanted to have a smaller version of one of the main pastas as a starter but the waitress couldn't understand me. So a gave up and order from the menu. I had the salt and peppered squid for a starter and it was cooked perfectly. For the main I had the fruit... More

Will never visit this place again. Ordered a takeaway pizza - the pizza was boxed and ready to the side of us and when we asked the waitress it we could take it she replied - I have to serve other people first! She was stood next to the box so could have just passed it to us. I've never... More

Yes it was a busy Bank Holiday weekend, our visit on Sunday 24th August 2014. Had a lovely cup of coffee as told the wait for food was 35minutes. We did not mind that. However when the Crab sandwiches arrived the brown bread was stale and the sandwich comprised only Brown crab meat, no white at all. In fact it... More

We went to this to eat here tonight. They really cannot cope with any dietary requests that would have them deviate from the norm. Questions about the menu and ingredients had them having to ask everytime to the point that I had a plate of chips as they seemed unsure! I was only asking if this or that has garlic... More

Staff quickly took our party name and told us there was quite a wait. No problem there we were happy to wait 30 minutes due to Fowey being packed for the Red Arrows display. Pizza was very disappointing. We had previously gone with the same couple (we are local) and had great pizzas. This time stodgy thick base, insufficient topping... More

We had a late lunch here twice last week. The pubs in East Cornwall seem to stop serving food at 2.30. Luckily the Boat House doesn't. We had no problems getting a table and found the food to be very good indeed. The first time we had paninis and sides. The second time we were told that we could only... More

Food good, service professional and family friendly, dislike having to walk to the cash machine as their internet connect is " a problem" come on!
