Superb riverside location, serving a good range of food although service was rather slow. However, top marks go to the cheese slate with the inspired addition of a serving of honey. Sweet and savoury... just brilliant!!

Stayed for a night for a wedding close by. The staff were really helpful and let us check it early and offered to get us a taxi. We had room 6, I wouldn't recommend this one. In the morning it was really noisy with people arriving at the hotel as it's right over the reception. The beds were big and... More

Arrived Friday at 17:00 and as there is reception as such we had to wait in the crowed bar with our cases until we was finally seen to. Once in the room we was pleasently surprised, although Air Conditioning would of been nice. This all changed when it was bed time, the bed was absolutly awful, both sides of the... More

Visited for Sunday lunch. As we sat outside we were asked to order at the bar. Firstly when asking whether the fish and chips was vegetarian e.g. what oil was it cooked in, the waitress sarcastically replied "Its's Fish". Charming! Secondly, we ordered childrens food. They offer a 3 course set menu or the items can be ordered individually. At... More

Visited for the second time this year. We certainly won't be returning. The service was dreadful, staff stressed and unhelpful, management indifferent. Food mostly unpalatable. Over 30 min wait to pay. All in all, great location but everything else thoroughly disappointing.

Ridiculously slow service. Asked for a breakfast menu at the bar, 15minutes later and we were still waiting so gave up. Think we'd have been there all day had we actually ordered anything! Unfortunately didn't get far enough to actually review the food!

Food good, Lovely spot, probably as good as anything in Bath. Have been here many times, mostly for lunch. The service is never swift, however, this time the service was shockingly slow. It took 1 hour and 20 mins between starters for adults and serving the children's meals. We had to take the birthday cake home as we ran out... More

Looking forward to having a meal at the Boathouse on a beautiful evening. Unfortunately the young barmaid that was going to serve us at the bar had the dirtiest white shirt I have ever seen. The top pocket was black and grimy. It looked as it had been stored screwed up in a locker and worn many times without seeing... More

We went for a meal at The Boat House last night with friends. We had booked a table in advance. When we arrived we were told there would be a 45 minute wait for food which we accepted - 45 minutes went by and we asked several times when would our meal arrive and each time were told our ticket...
