The building is really nice, and the toilets are excellent (1st thing my wife checks out!). The food and drink is over priced. We got the feeling that they are trying to be a London city centre high class venue. I got the feeling that they don't want the 'normal' lake district' visitor, you know hikers, weekend visitors etc., which is a shame as the view is fantastic looking over the marina is a great sight. Not sure I would visit again. There are lots of really great restaurants in Bowness, without the need to get a taxi to the Boat House.
