We hadn't realised that Deckers didn't run this restaurant any more - however the service and food were almost as good. We needed to use the lift as we had a disabled relative with us, the entrance to the lift access is at the side and through the back door to the restaurant and to put it bluntly it stunk!!! The lift was smelly, the flooring was a mess and lifting - not good for disabled access!!!! If we hadn't had others with us we have left immediately. Certainly never to return.

The table and chairs were grubby, the carpet is old and the place needs a huge make-over.

The service was pleasant and friendly and most of the food quite good - but not all in our party were satisfied. Sorry guys but we wont be back.

Just held a birthday party for my husband at The Boathouse (formerly Deckers), at Sale Water Park. We held it in the downstairs room B Low Decks. What an excellent venue for a small party, we had 27 guests, but there was room for more. The room was beautiful, and everyone raved about the three course meal which was excellent. The service was great, we had our own bar down there. The French windows were opened and we all enjoyed drinks on the terrace first, then watched a wonderful sunset. A big thank you to Alistair and all the staff for making the evening such a success.

Recently visited here as part of a birthday party in their private function room which is separate from the main restaurant. Credit where it's due: all three courses were first rate, well presented, the food was enjoyable to eat and served by attentive staff. The hot dishes were hot and served on hot plates - which is not the case everywhere you go.
Private function room is a great setting overlooking the water park with its own outside area and bar. Definitely one of the better venues for a private party.
Also ate in the main restaurant a few weeks previously which we liked.

Fast food , fast service, pack them in, feed them fast move them on, you get what you pay for.
Can't complain about the service, cleanliness or food but the drinks were a bit steep.

Overall for an early evening dinner with friends it did exactly what it says on the tin.
