We've visited this beautiful restaurant many times for dinner. Menu excellent with wide choice of food. We have also gone for breakfast which is excellent value for money. Relaxed atmosphere and attentive and friendly staff. Like all restaurants things occasionally go a bit wrong but forgivable. Overnight accommodation is modern, clean and comfortable.

Unlike some other restaurants at this time of year, we didn't feel cramped or squashed with other diners. Hope to return with family, when we're not...

I've eaten with family at the Boathouse on a few occasions previously. The restaurant is large and spacious and situated in a lovely spot by the canal marina. This time around, I had dropped my son off at the nearby Croy Station and had a notion for some breakfast. I knew that the Boathouse offered a breakfast menu so I...

The boat house was an establishment I had never visited before so on being recommended by several friends and family I decided to give it a try. (I was not disappointed) On first arrival,outwardly you are immediately aware of its tranquil marina location and once inside the premises you are impressed with its decor and ambience. Menu choices were numerous...

Stayed here for one night, travelling with a business colleague & working locally. Bar area warm and relaxed. Good welcome on arrival, with friendly service. Rooms look newly refurbished, very comfortable bed & good night's sleep.
