Just okay for family lunch. Setting is great but for the prices tables & chairs stained and need to be updated. Service average. Food is limited and changes for dietary needs difficult.

I will keep my eye on the reviews in the hope that things improve and I can start taking visitors back to the Boathouse. I love the atmosphere here with the river views and the ducks quacking. I was embarrassed at the meal provided last time we visited with interstate guests. I could hardly eat mine and found it hard... More

This used to be a great cafe with good food and service, not sure what has happened but now very poor menu and wine selection and food below average, the only thing it has going for it is the location but that is not enough to entice me back again

Whilst the view and location is great the rest you can get at your local shopping centre. Breakfast variety was very limited and as another reviewer said something from the 80's. The staff lacked any skill in hospitality and must have been the latest crop of backpackers from o/s looking for a job. The thing that separates business is the... More

We went with friends last week. Very busy but I've no idea why. So basic, & not worth the drive. The food was very very average, there are many places you could choice far better with a lot better views.

Can be a bit hard to find. However, the baothouse is like something from the 20's. Cafe and you can sit outside under the trees. Row boats for hire which makes for a rimantic time

The rural setting of this restaurant is charming and the lovely staff helped me settled in nicely and ready for the 2 course lunch! Food is great and modern and worth every penny paid!

For Mental Health Carers week we were treated to a three course lunch at the Boathouse amongst the trees and beside the river. Beautiful setting and sitting in the covered balcony on a warm day what more could you want. Food very good, entrée was okay but main and dessert were very good. Finished off with a brewed coffee. Some... More

Freshly squeezed orange juice for starters! What a difference to some packaged versions! Well squeezed! Fruit toast and muesli turned up together, with the milk for the muesli arriving later, as I was tucking into the toast. Must say the homey with the muesli was delicious! I'm having chai latte as I come to terms with the phone's keyboard wondering... More
