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... More

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.

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. One small gripe is that creaky floorboards in rooms above need to be screwed down tight.Views from the bar and some of the rooms... More

Warm and inviting, very attentive staff, clean and tidy, great food, lovely surroundings. Reasonable prices and generous portions. The restaurant was busy so booking is advised. Space around tables is generous. What more could you ask for?

Lovely room, fantastic evening meal, but very disappointing breakfast. No fruit, yoghurt or cereal on offer. Why? We were only offered a cooked breakfast and had to wait over twenty minutes to get it. Why not offer cereal and /or fruit and yoghurt initially, then the cooked breakfast.
