We had a beautiful warm sunny day on our way back from Hoton and decided to call at Farndon Boathouse for lunch. An excellent idea from my wife. The reception by staff was friendly and welcoming. An unually hot day so the aircondtioning was very welcome. We did find a shaded table outside though with a lovely view down the... More

We went out as a family to the boat house. Our young children who are 1 year and 4 years old also came. We were made to feel welcome and the atmosphere was great. The quality and presentation of food was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Both the children's meal were of amazing quality (especially the sausages) and... More

Really nice Sunday roast. Succulent chicken with roast potatoes, stuffing & veg. The service was first class, Charlie was really friendly and very professional too. All in all a really nice dining experience.

My wife and I went for lunch and basically the food in our opinion was sub standard, the poached salmon was raw, more like smoked salmon, and the belly pork was just fat, no meat/crackling. The place itself is in nice settings and well presented, staff were pleasant also. Shame about the food though.

I have been to this restaurant and thought it was fabulous - this was about six months ago. Unfortunately on this occasion I was very disappointed. We had previously booked and expected to sit in the restaurant but were put in the bar area. The staff were very inexperienced. We were offered drinks but the staff member did not know... More

We enjoyed dinner here as a group. We sat outside in a lovely location and even managed to find vegan choices. Only disappointment was a lemon posset that my friend had which was very runny. Other than that we would definitely return.

Atmosphere good, food good, service okay, wine prices toppy. Ate with some friends, all had different meals and all thoroughly enjoyed them. We ate in the resturaunt rather than the pub, atmosphere was good, not too noisy, tables a nice distance apart. The service wasn't great, lots of students, not that attentive, left for ages waiting for the bill. Wine... More

We were a group of 26 at the restaurant the other Sunday. The venue is light airy and modern inside, with plenty of outdoor seating with views of the River Trent. The staff had laid out our tables with a seating plan and all our food choices set out on table place cards. Excellent if you have forgotten what you... More
