Visited the Boat Inn for the first time last friday after was recommended by the owner of Ashbrook Caravan Park in Hay on Wye. I must say I was not disappointed. 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

The menu is extensive and has dishes to suit every taste as well as some delicious desserts. The staff are friendly, there is plenty of... More

A mixed bag - the beer was reasonable and reasonably priced at £3.10/pint, the bar staff friendly, and the food came in sufficiently large portions for a group of hungry canoeists. The food was a touch expensive for what it was - the steak was great, though a touch overcooked, but the pies were filling, but not amazing. As others... More
