“Not as good as it used to be!”

Description: There are few more attractive places to eat in Cambridgeshire than looking down the river Ouse as you enjoy a meal of fine British cuisine supplied with the Boathouse’s unique European twist. The inners of the restaurant calmly reflect the tranquillity of the riverside setting, but whilst you relax you can also peek at the chefs hard at work in the open plan kitchen, perhaps cooking up the locally caught eel which often features on the Boathouse’s a la carte and light lunch menus. Service is friendly and efficient, the wine list is extensive, and the Boathouse is delighted to host occasions ranging from a quiet lunch on the riverbank to a cheery evening feast.

The title of this review says it all really.

We have been customers at the boathouse for a number of years and whilst we enjoy going there it just seems way over priced for the quality of what your actually receiving now!

I'm not sure if the supplier has changed or the Chefs, our last meal was ok, don't get me wrong, it just seems that the quality of produce or the way it's cooked has taken a serious drop.

The interior is lovely and the staff are very polite and well trained....Maybe i'll try the food again in a couple of months on my own before i decide to take anyone there again!

Was highly recommended, but was slightly disappointed, it was noisy and busy and the food was good up to a point. Desert let down the rest of the meal but service staff are courteous and attentive when not busy.

Location excellent by bend in river - best on hot summer day. Easy walk from station. Food OK - not super speial, but pleasant atmosphere and not bank-breaking. Part of Cambridge Cuisine chain of 5 ( best is Tickel Arms). Can reccomend and will revisit.
