“Seafood Heaven”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This is a delightful querky restaurant, set right in the harbour. You couldnt ask for fresher seafood, more personable pleasant staff or a nicer eating experience.
Thoroughly recomend a visit.

“A Great Experience”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Having not wanted to go out in the weather we opted for The Boathouse having looked at tripadvisor reviews - and we werent disappointed. Two of us opted for crawfish and were surprised to be told they were "quite hard to get catch" - the evening experience was somewhat surpising to see the manager in his wetsuit outside in the very large tank catching them, bringing them through the restaurant (1kg each) and eventually eating a beautifully fresh meal. The ambience was great and the location of harbour views enhanced this. We would love to come back in the summer as am sure it would be a great place to revisit.

“Best fish and chips, best seafood”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Had fish and chips 4 times while I was in the UK. This was by far the best Fish I'd had. The chips were good too, but not the best I'd had. My colleagues all loved their seafood dishes as well. You can get a HUGE bowl of mussels for a good price if you're into that sort of thing.
