Lazy afternoons at the Boat House

Another of the islands best kept secret, outstanding fish & chips with seating on the waters edge. Quaint, charming & relaxing listening to the waves breaking against the shore whilst dining on a hot summers day.

Me and my friend had the burger stack which was very tasty containing lots of flavor. The helpful staff were also very polite and friendly.The views... More

This place has sadly gone down hill since the change of ownership. Today we had lunch at the Boathouse, my husband's burger tasted nasty, cheap and what resembled cat food. The previous owners made their own burgers, which were in a different league. We also witnessed the boss/owner speak rudely and aggressively to a young male member of staff who... More

And we appreciated the thoughtfulness of a member of staff who offered to get a bowl of water for our dog. Although we only had one meal here, we would thoroughly recommend a visit. And sitting outside and... More

I have tried to honestly determine what was wrong with our visit for lunch today. My conclusion is that there were no experienced staff and that the young people left at front of house were simply not enough to cope with the number of customers. The food was adequate but nothing to write home about. One visit is enough to... More
