Six of us went for Sunday lunch. The restaurant was fairly quiet and the food was decidedly average. For starters three of us had Moules and they were pleasant in a nice if somewhat bland sauce. The Prawn Cocktails were typical and the breaded mushrooms looked to be frozen and then deep fried.
We all had different main courses and none of them were particularly memorable. The Gammon with melted stilton was a very fatty piece of meat, the fish and chips dull, the salmon was a nice portion of fish but swimming in hollandaise sauce, the belly pork was more fat than meat, the roast beef looked fine and traditional but the lamb shank looked about the best bet. Service was so so and at times tardy.
With one bottle of wine and a few non alcoholic drinks the bill came to £22 a head pre tip. All in all, a pretty average experience, we won't be returning.

Seems to have been recently refurbished and consists of a spacious dining area, with comfortable chairs, soft play for the children plus an outdoor play area. The menu was extensive and the service friendly and prompt. The food was of a high standard and a good location for couples and families.

Another member of the Boat House group, like its parent this restaurant serves rather ordinary food and is best avoided unless that's what you like.
