Having recently been refurbished, we called in on a Sunday evening for a drink, the pub is really welcoming and has been nicely refurbished, my only gripe was that we wanted a quiet drink and chat along with all the other - mainly - couples there but this was difficult due to the piped music being played too loudly!

Me and my partner stopped here for lunch and a drink after we had walked around the marina. We were warmly greeted by a manager who showed us to a table even though they were busy and we hadn't booked. We sat in a lovely window seat that over looked the marina which was perfect for us to people watch!!!... More

Took the mother in law for Sunday lunch as it had been lovely previously. Booked on-line, which was great. Service was so slow it was ridiculous. 30 minutes until starters came (we only ordered soup and pate, so not complicated). We thought our main course was never going to arrive. When I asked (another 30 minutes after our starter finished)... More

After a lovely afternoon at the Marina to celebrate my 60 plus birthday my two friends and I thought a glass of wine overlooking the Marina enjoying the last of the early evening sun would be perfect. After ordering our drinks we made are way to the empty conservatory to watch the boats, only to be told by an officious... More

After the recent revamp of the restaurant i was keen to give it a try. Prompt, Efficient, Professional service - very well organised.. We opted for the Boatmens starter (pictures attached) and the Lamb Rump (off the specials) the food was incredible at a reasonable price. A relaxed location, great menu both food and drink. Would highly recommend.

I had lunch with my son on a Wednesday and we both thought the new look Waterfront was stunning. On all fronts this pub delivered from the food (the new boatman's platter is lovely), the large drinks choice and the casual dining service and ambience. We will really look forward to our next visit.

We went yesterday at 4.30pm. There were 5 of us. 2 of the meals came out 10 minutes before the others. We had to ask for the other meals and a forgotten side order. Pizza was buy one get one free and we were billed twice. Meals were expensive. Lovely place and surroundings but not a great experience. We won't... More

This pub is in a lovely setting and from the outside looks pretty good. Our initial impression on entering was tainted by a manager sending a young couple away as they don't allow children under 5, they had a baby asleep in a pram ! We ordered meals for four which came out at different times, mistakes were made with... More

Despite changing our reservation twice for today, the restaurant accommodated our family party of 14. The service was good from the moment we walked in,to when we left. Any problems we had were quickly solved with a smile and nothing was too much trouble. Despite such a large number, everyone had the meal they wanted, cooked to order and also... More
