so much on there menu to be otherwise. Other half had belly pork which was ok, however the mash was sour uneatable. I had the fish and chips which was some what greasy.. felt unwell after.. will give this place a miss in future..

I don't usually write reviews or like to complain, but Saturday's experience at the Boat Inn left me seething. It was my brother in law's birthday and we decided to drive from Wales to meet them half way from Leominster to celebrate at this restaurant. I had been looking forward to this all day. There was 14 of us altogether... More

Called in on Sunday afternoon, very busy, but a table found for the three of us in the bar. Good choice of ales on offer and a diverse menu with something for everyone. The Welsh lamb shank fell off the bone, the pork chops enormous and the home made lasagne delicious. Portions were generous and everything cooked to perfection. Staff... More

Went for a family meal out with a couple of French exchange girls who had come to stay with my daughter. There were nine of us in total and we ordered a range of different meals, all in the £10-£12 price range. The food was nicely presented, hot, tasty and good portion sizes. Everyone agreed that the food was very... More

A late Friday lunchtime visit. Were shown to a fantastic table overlooking the river. Made to feel welcome instantly by the gentleman behind the bar. Extensive menu - lots of fish dishes to choose from beside lots of specials and mouthwatering meat dishes. Our orders included plaice, cod and game pie. Each meal was superb and they were big portions.... More
