Came here for lunch after we got off the ferry at Yarmouth - its not really a pub, more of a beach cafe that serves alcohol, but being able to dink a cold beer with delicious mussels and chips whilst the children ran along the beach playing was perfect. very quiet, lovely people.

We randomly stopped at the boat house and we didn't regret it. The mussels were amazing, freshly cooked and you can taste the authenticity. Facing the sea. An amazing experience

After walking on the very beautiful Headon Warren, we felt we were in need of a sugar hit so on the way back home we thought we'd give the Boathouse a try. We went there many years ago but hadn't been back and I'm v glad we decided to give it another try. We were greeted by the v friendly... More

The Good Lady and I payed a visit purely because she had to have home made cake and a coffee. To my delight upon entry they were licensed so I could have a beer. Coffee and cake for the good Lady, San Miguel for me Win Win. It's a family run establishment and all were very helpful and accommodating. Would... More

We stumbled across this place by accident today and I'm very pleased we did. The menu was very comprehensive and catered for all our needs, including those of my three children. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

We had lunch here, it was so good we went back for breakfast the next day. Kids loved the beach and the binoculars were great to watch the passing yachts. Lovely staff, very accommodating. Would definately recommend.

Having just moved to the Island in February, we stumbled across this charming little cafe/restuarant by chance. We decided to take our dogs for a walk along the beach near Fort Victoria today...saw a table available outside the cate today...and thought what a great place for lunch. We ordered the Seafood Basket and Squid in Batter. Both of these dishes... More

I have always liked this place, the location is lovely and the food and staff have been very good. However the one huge problem was the previous owners relaxed attitude was reflected in their opening hours. You would turn up the same time as you went the previous day/week and would find it shut. So when I arrived today I... More

We went to the Boathouse at lunchtime today. It's clearly changed hands. We walked in and were 'greeted' by people's backs, with no intention of acknowledging that we were there. A small child was working behind the bar. We asked for draught beer with a view to having lunch (didn't bother).'sorry, it's off" so we had two small bottles of... More
