What a pleasant surprise. The outside does not reflect the impressive refurbishment on the inside. Am amazing place modern but full of original features and very inviting. Food was fantastic definitely will revist. Book early in advance if you want to eat outside at peak times, very popular. There is usually room outside overlooking the sea if you are passing.

We visited the Boathouse in August for a midweek break. We found our room to be very tired looking, especially the bathroom which seriously needs an upgrade, some ventilation and the floor and paintwork needs some attention. Also the room we had was situated over the bar which becomes very noisy at the close of business with tables and chairs... More

We rocked up to the restaurant without a booking having been disappointed by the menu at our planned dinner location. The choice was better here with a large specials board. We were offered the last available table in the bar and could sit with our dog which was good. The decor and atmosphere was comfortable and the staff were friendly.... More

Whilst we had a wonderful meal at this splendidly located pub/restaurant the service left a lot to be desired. In some ways they tried too hard to be welcoming but fell short in so many ways of delivering a service that was worthy of the food. We were almost tutted at when we asked for our table to be cleaned... More

There is no doubt this beachside pub is situated in a idillic location. Great interior layout and huge gardens looking out upon the Solent to Portsmouth. Extremely welcoming staff who engaged in friendly conversation with all customers as well as small children. Sadly the selection of food on our menu was very disappointing. We shared a starter of Whitebait. It... More

Another unplanned visit and just as good as previous ones; staff excellent- not always enough of them when ordering- a happy experience and was made even better by staying on to eat having had a pre arranged meet with friends for a drink. The food is excellent, not aware of the accommodation side of the place.

The Boat House is a very friendly, family pub that serves really good food in a relaxed atmosphere. We've been coming here for four years and the staff are very welcoming and are excellent with kids. Yola, one of the lovely waitresses appears as if by magic with colouring pens and books and loves all the babies! Portion sizes are... More

Friendly staff and good food. I loved the mashy peas served with the fish and chips. The order came pretty fast and it was hot. The place is also dog friendly. And it was also good that i could add to the order 10 minutes later, and all food still came at a same time.

We found this near our holiday cottage in Ryde, liked it and came back for a second meal. Good food, pleasant atmosphere, especially outdoors looking over the Solent. Wide choice of locally sourced and further afield menu items. Make sure you book a table to avoid disappointment.
