We were very regular winter customers to the Boathouse and their other venue The Fishbourne Inn,this was our first visit to the Boathouse since last year, the food quality had deteriorated considerably, I had mixed fish, it came with overcooked Mussels and a piece of white fish that was decidedly undercooked, my wife had a pasta dish that was not...

My boyfriend took me here for our first official date, the staff were friendly, the food was very good and the pudding we shared was scrumptious! And three months later we are still together :D

If you want quantity over quality, this would be excellent. We had been recommended this place for a special meal. The pork belly was very dry and the size of the ale pie was enough to be shared. If you like potato, you would not be disappointed as meal was served with copious mashed and new potatoes whereas the amount... More

Despite mixed reviews we returned here for lunch outside during October half term. The food was very good, friendly staff, buzzing with families, really nice place to go. Perfect for a sunny lunch overlooking the solent. Crab salad recommended.

Whole crab, not appetising,not helped by no crack s so customer is all on his own with very inaccurate tools, mess everywhere and no water bowl to rinse. Prawns the worst I've ever seen... More

Our food was great, staff were very helpful. Surroundings perfect. Price reflects quality of food. Do not let the following take away from the fact that we had a great time overall. The only reason I was unable to rate as excellent - someone in our small party had a dietary requirement they made the waitress aware of. It was... More

Weekday lunch was very pleasant, good quality and quantity. A couple of errors in the service were corrected quickly. Parking was easy but not so on a busy weekend or holiday time. Suggest you park elsewhere and walk along the seafront.
