“Nice sunday Lunch”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The food is very good . Only problem was we were put in the bar for our Sunday meal. In the past we have always been in the restaurant part of pub We were told by a waitress when we asked for drinks she said you have to get your own drinks at the bar which you are served at your table in restaurant also in the bar is lots of childrens toys so children running around and lots of noise .So if you book always ask for the Restaurant not the bar.

Room Tip: do not book a table in the bar

We booked the 3 rooms at the back of the hotel. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. We had pre dinner drinks in the garden, where the landlord joined us. Both him and his wife were perfect hosts and made is very welcome. We then had dinner which was excellent traditional English food. Excellent service, huge meals and value for money. At breakfast we were served by the owners son who like his father was very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was plentiful with all the traditional offerings eg black pudding, bacon, eggs , mushrooms, tomato etc. The location is a bit remote ( no shops in walking distance) but it was just what we wanted.

Room Tip: All 3 rooms at the back of the hotel were the same

One of the best Sunday lunches I have had. Good choice of meats served with huge home made yorkshires and plenty of vegetables. Vegetarians are also catered for. Large portions (no room for dessert), efficient friendly service and good value for money. There were some nice local ales to sample as well. The restaurant was very busy so probably best to book.

Visited with 2 friends for dinner, on a beautiful, sunny, Monday evening and was amazed by the number of people dining - surely a good sign. Service was fast, friendly and efficient and the choice, for the 2 meat eaters was tremendous, although slightly more limited for our vegetarian friend; however, her choice of tempura battered vegetables was declared delicious. My braising steak was beautifully tender, the only slight let down was the vegetable side dish, the green beans being slightly over-cooked for my taste. Overall, a veery enjoyable experience.

My husband, dog and I have just returned from a 3 night stay and we all agree with the recent reviews. Since all rooms are separate from the main building with their own outside door it meant that our dog didn’t have to be on a lead when going to/from the room and that we didn’t constantly have to worry about her upsetting any other guests and likewise them disturbing her. Our King Size bed seemed softer than I would usually have but surprisingly for me in a strange place, when my head hit the pillow, I immediately fell asleep and woke up feeling refreshed. Food portions are huge and my Lamb Shoulder could have fed 2. We also tackled the Fish and Chips ! We would all recommend this Inn to anyone.

My partner and I, and dog,have just returned from a two night stay at this idyllic bed and breakfast. As noted by other reviewers the accomodation is situated in stone bungalows at the rear of the main building, this gives a great feeling of staying in your own apartment but with the great facilities of the main bar and restaurant just across the courtyard. The main bar and restaurant are outstanding, we dined in the restaurant on the Friday, and in the bar on the Saturday. On both occassions the food and service were outstanding, in addition the breakfasts really set you up for the day. My partner is vegetarian and she said that her meals were also exceptional. The Haddock and chip merits special mention which I had on Saturday, think Man V Food and you will get the idea of portion size. All in all the Boatside is a great place to stay, close to places of interest, such as Hadrians Wall, Hexham and even Newcastle if it takes your fancy. We will definitely return.
