“Brilliant party at The Boathouse!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Our whole family have used and loved The Boathouse for many years, so decided to have a special family & friends birthday party at the pub. We took over the new restaurant extension for a posh buffet with 30 guests. The food, drink and atmosphere were fantastic, and we would like to give a big thank you to Nick the landlord, Roger the chef, and all the lovely, attentive staff.

“Fish stew to die for”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

First time we have been back to the Boathouse since it was extended to have a 'proper' restaurant. Had an excellent meal - brilliant locally caught fish and the fish stew was to die for - in fact I don't think I will be eating anything else but that when we return there. The views from the restaurant are superb of Falmouth harbour and beyond. Beer and service excellent. Only one drawback and that is you cannot take dogs into the restaurant although they can go into the bar and the outside area. As a local I am forever trying to find places where we can eat out and take the puppy.

“Best view in town”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

The boathouse is one of Falmouth greatest locations. Beautiful views, great beer, delicious grub, and top banana service. The guys at the boathouse are the best. 5 stars.

“A fun and fabulous evening was had by all!”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

We started the evening in the new dining area, where it felt like being on a first class cruise ship, with outstanding panaramic views and the sun setting on the horizon. Our first course arrived promptly, lightly dusted calamari and fresh scallops with hogs pudding, which I had never heard of and was sceptical, but turns out they are a great compliment to the scallops and we thoroughly enjoyed both items. However, when our main course arrived we really felt as if we where at the Captains table, excellant fresh fish, piping hot and the sauces divine accompanied by a wonderful bottle of Malbec. The service was polite, passive and prompt. We moved into the outside patio area later and enjoyed chatting and playing quiz games with the friendly locals. Excellant evening of cuisine and fun in an unpretentious atmosphere!!
