We stayed in the apartments next door to the restaurant and visited several times during our weeks stay. On every occasion were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We had our dogs with us on the holiday and they were also very welcome both inside and outside the restaurant. The place itself was very clean... More

Recently taken over and as a family run business we found our recent experiance here wonderful. Fabulous location. We had moored at Yarmouth Harbour for a couple of nights and stumbled across The Boathouse as we walked our Golden Retreiver, Fiona 🐾🐶❤️. We stayed for a couple of beers and Pimms the first afternoon which was great. Lisa greeted us... More

Recently under new management family run and unbelievably accommodating nothing is too much trouble. Choice of food varied and although I didn't try the carvery on a Sunday visit everyone was complimentary. I had squid, chips and salad - generous portions and well presented. Good family restaurant and dog friendly.

We were holidaying at Fort Victoria Cottages with our small and well behaved dog Jess. We decided to try the Boathouse Sunday Lunch and were very pleased we did. It was exceptional and we would definitely say amongst the best we have had anywhere. We decided that we should book again for the following Friday evening and again were very... More

We were staying next door at one of the apartments so The Boathouse Cafe and Restaurant was an obvious and very convenient choice. The two ladies are SO FRIENDLY and went out of their way to accommodate us each time we visited. We enjoyed evening meals there twice and, on our final day, had a cooked breakfast. Always the food...

Have now been here several times for Sunday lunch including the day a previous reviewer found it so aweful. This is a new venture for the present owners and as such we are tolerant to the teething troubles which are inevitably encountered. Each time we visit things get better and we have no cause to write a damning report. The... More

We booked here partly because of all the good reviews on TA and its lovely views - which were indeed spectacular. Maybe all the positive reviews ate at 1230 on a Sunday but when we arrived at 2pm, there was a very sorry looking carvery with wilting, soggy yorkshires, veg so over-cooked they were standing in water and roast pork...
