Called in the boathouse late Sunday afternoon looking for Sunday lunch, we hadn't booked and most tables had been reserved but the staff couldn't have been more helpful and managed to squeeze us in. I ordered the lamb and my partner ordered the beef. The lamb was delicious, so tender it just fell apart and when combined with the amazing... More

We ate here for the first time with friends. This is a very jolly pub and busy. Best to reserve a table. Excellent friendly service. The food is interesting and diverse.

Returned to the Boathouse after far too long a time. I wasn't disappointed we had a fabulous meal and the staff are efficient and friendly. As always a great selection of beers (and spirits!). We will be back soon!

We found this gem via TripAdvisor, so it was only fair to write a review of how good it was. In short, this was the best Sunday lunch I've ever had in a pub. With great beer. In a stunning setting. With a jaw-dropping panoramic view of Falmouth bay. With friendly, efficient service. And great atmosphere. If you get the... More

We're lucky enough to have this gem of a pub pretty much on our doorstep. Nick is a great landlord, very welcoming and he was even good enough to show the Great British Bake Off final for a small group of us after I requested it! What a star. Really well kept beers, great spot for a pint of Skinners... More

Beautiful place tucked away at the top of Falmouth town, it has amazing views and great food. We had belly pork and all the trimmings and it was lovely.

Not overly busy time of visit. Service totally non existent!! Cold plates, no one came to enquire if everything ok. Had to ask for everything and to place a desert order!!? Avoid

Lovely pub with a fantastic view over the river. I don't usually go out for a Sunday roast, preferring a home cooked one, but I would make an exception for the roast here. Good size, great accompaniments and a bloody good roast all round. Oysters to start where good too. Highly recommended.
