My 18 month old received two sausages, and massive portion of mash potato and a few peas - it was apparently a child's meal, for £4 and I thought was well worth it, until I received my meal ... I ordered an adult £9 scampi dish, which came with chips and peas, but it came with mushy peas. The chips... More

Very poor experience today at the Boat House. It's a great location but the management failed badly during our visit and left the overworked staff to handle a deteriorating situation. BBQ sauce - sold out Rocket - sold out Steak and Ale pie - sold out American burger served without the key ingredien, Pastrami. Why? Sold out Fries? Sold out.... More

Visited recently with friends, stunning location right on the Thames and the sun was shining which is always an added bonus! Squid and nachos were delightful, the burgers looked amazing(will have to try them next time, as they looked a very generous size) so we opted for a dessert instead, the ice cream sundae which was also very generously portioned!...

Visit as advertised that was showing formula 1 and tennis. They have one large screen and two smaller ones, one small screen wasn't working. Only had sound from the large screen, hard to hear from some places. The two large tables in front of the large screen was reserved for a large group with lots of kids. Had to move... More

This is a typical modern pub with typical pub food of typical quality. The best part is the river setting with plenty of outdoor seating. It definitely seemed a more local place and service was fine.

Interesting menu, with a combination of traditional english food, coupled with some modern options. Good selection of beers, burgers are good - especially the vegetarian option.

Here to visit my cousin, despite being a dreary wet day we still headed toward the river. This was our first visit to Boat House and were impressed. Warm welcome, especially from Hannah !! Good food in pleasant surroundings, we will certainly visit again.
