Would have been perfect except for children on the next table playing 'loud games' on their phones!! These should be switched off while eating, Maybe the restaurant should have notices asking... read more

Needed somewhere to stay while making funeral arrangements for a relative on the Isle of Wight. The Boathouse in Seaview was perfect - wonderful, friendly staff (for whom nothing was too much trouble) beautiful room, excellent facilities, incredible views and great food. Can't recommend highly enough.

Wenrt to the Boathouse a week ago to take advantage of the two for one menu with friends, who had not been before and I had raved about it after a previous visit a couple of years ago. The menu starter menu was OK, but the mains and dessert courses were disappointingly unimaginative and bland. The deal is a great... More

Very disappointing as no where on the menu was that stated! We couldn't even find a Sunday Lunch menu available?! However a staff member sat next... More

These should be switched off while eating, Maybe the restaurant should have notices asking for phones to be on silent.

We visit quite regularly, especially during the "closed" season, to partake of the aforementioned offer. Food quality is very good, as are the staff. Great views across the Solent. Particularly like the "Elderly Gentlemen" in the outside area!

Had dinner here on Sunday. They are doing a 2 for 1 3 course menu (£20 for 2 people) from Sunday to Thursday evenings. Must be pre-booked. They also do a half price bottle of wine at £10 to go with it. REALLY nice food for this price! One or two dishes have a small supplement, but if that is... More

A very wide choice of meals but mainly centred on local fish in an excellent venue with views across the beach and the East Solent

Went on a Thursday night on the 2 for £20 offer and was surprised at the good selection of starters, main courses and deserts. Will definitely go again before the offer runs out in December.
