Would consider staying there for a weekend.

We spent an evening there with a big group the night before a friend's wedding. Pub is right on the water and had plenty of comfy seating as well as a good menu. We didn't eat there, but everyone who did said the food was great. I know the service was. They also kept a good cellar, the... read more

Tasty meal in late July. Fish and chips, and plaice were both nicely done, though not so large for the price charged. Children's options are OK, though all with chips on the menu (why why?!). Not the best value for the price though, especially if you venture onto the specials board. And our table was sticky and needed a good... More

We called in on the off chance that they were still serving breakfast and were pleased to find they were! The food was perfectly cooked and served by friendly, welcoming staff. The atmosphere was also welcoming and relaxed with a lovely veiw of the sea.

We came here for a family meal upon recommendation & were so please we did. The restaurant was busy but the food was still very quick. Portions were very generous and the food was simply delicious. We were also able to sit with our dogs on the patio area. Really enjoyed our visit & will visit again. Many thanks.

Shame local ale ran out. They even gave me a small spoon for my ice cream. Nice toiletries in loo. Especially nice on a sunny day... More

Having read and heard so much about the Boathouse and as we were staying just along the road we decided to have a family meal on the last evening. As advised we booked, it was fairly buzzing. Our disappointment came with the portion size of the cod (we opted for the fish and chips which had looked so good a... More

We found this via a road sign and we were glad we did. Plenty of fish dishes plus standard pub menu. Veg was cooked perfectly. We had a good meal and returned a day later.

The Boathouse has a nice outside seating area where we enjoyed a drink and views of the sea, before eating. The menu has a good variety, with locally sourced produce and well kept local ales. Staff were also friendly and polite.
