A very popular place

We went as a family of 8 and had booked in advanced, which I am informed is best to do at the weekend. The restaurant was very busy and bustling. The bar staff were very chatty and efficient. The menu is quite extensive with meat and fish dishes dominating, but there were vegetarian options... read more

Hunted for pub grub all around Hay and Gladbury but everything closed at 2pm. Drove towards Hereford and found this little place just off the A438 with river views. Friendly staff, food very reasonable and good choices. Fish dish was lovely and fish was fresh not frozen. Hubby had chilli nachos which he enjoyed. Worth a visit.

A group of friends had said for a long while that they'd been coming here on the way to Hereford, and that the food was second to none. On my first visit, I had to fully back them up, a choice of about 10 starters and 8 desserts meant that there was a lot of temptation to eat the full... More

Menu choice was huge around 10 starters and twice as many mains. We decided to have mains and a pudding. My husband had liver ,bacon and onions, served with mash and rich thick... More

I went for the Large Rump and dear lord Large it was, it could have fed 2 people easily. The taste was succulent and the home made chips were... More

Never disappointed (although sometimes uncomfortably full) We have eaten here many times & the food is excellent. The steaks are first class & enormous. My daughter had one of their huge rump steaks cooked rare, took the remainder of it home & managed to have 3 more lunches & a stir fry from it. Good selection of starters & main... More

Simple, not posh, with really good home cooked style pub grub. Not a restaurant, not a gastro-pub just honest food served with a smile in a pub environment. Good view right on river too and lovely garden area.... If you are hungry it's well worth a visit. Great kids meal options too.... I have to say the girl who was... More

Oh what a shame. Having visited the Boat Inn on a few occasions my wife decided to book a table for my Birthday treat along with my Mother & Father In Law. We told them we rated it high on our list of places to eat. However the illusion was quickly shattered the moment we walked in to order our... More
