Very nicely decorated. Contemporary. Dog friendly. Clean. Good idea to provide shoe protectors as our boots were a bit muddy. Didn’t try the food but it did look very nice. Plenty of people were in the pub so must be popular. Nice rest after a walk from Hexham along the river.

Friends took us to this lovely inn located in delightful countryside near Hexham. Everything was spotlessly clean and the ambience conducive to enjoying a lovely meal. Fast food it is not but it is good quality, freshly prepared and well presented - worth waiting for. Prices were about right, not cheap but not too expensive. Portions were good and one course was more than sufficient. We enthusiastically recommend this lovely eatery.

Had food here on the other night, there was a maximum of 10 people in the restaurant, 1 member of staff on the bar, 2 waiting, sounds like plenty doesn't it. We weren't offered a drink once seated and couldn't manage to summons anyone until they came to take our order, had some lovely potato skins for a starter and a steak for mains, beautifully cooked and presented, food was magnificent, half way through my steak i was presented with a steak knife which hadn't mattered but highlighted the lack of thought or/and experience by the waiting staff, by this point there was hardly anyone left, they'd ate & left, me automatically thinking, we might get seen to a bit better now, we were given desert menu's and then abandoned for ages, to the point the first glimpse of staff at the other end of the room i called over to state we'd like to order desert, as the menu stated desserts then ice cream "and or" in between so my partner ordered, eaton mess with strawberry ice cream, the member of staff already aware at our disappear of waiting knocked one desert off the bill before they'd even arrived as an apology, but when the desserts arrived, put down in front of us the waitress disappeared for spoons then they seemed to be sorting something out at the till, which was fair enough but time went by again, to the point i had to shout across excuse me i'm waiting for spoons, the eaton mess didn't come with strawberry ice cream as asked for and was then told "that's not how you make it" which wasn't the point but by then i was sick and tired finished my dessert settled up and left, in fairness they knocked off both desserts from the bill and apologized again, but i don't want apologies, i just want good swift service, the food is fantastic, but i really hope something can be learnt from this as i enjoy dinning at the boat but this ordeal left me frustrated

My wife and I accompanied by our Granddaughter enjoyed a lovely Meal at the Boatside Inn. All the food was delicious and of good portions and the Kitchen Staff should be commended for this. The Restaurant Staff were, without exception, very friendly and attentive.

All in all we had a great Dining Experience.

The Boatside Inn had been recommended to us by family members and we were most definitely not disappointed that we followed their recommendation.
When we checked the rating for the Boatside Inn on Tripadvisor we were somewhat surprised to see that the Restaurant only had a 4* rating!

Our party of four had dinner at the Boatside on a quiet Thursday evening early in January. Only a few days after the New Year's holiday, it was always going to be quiet and as a result the restaurant lacked atmosphere. The menu was as varied and imaginative as ever and the quality of the food excellent. Service was a little 'hit and miss' - nobody offered to replenish our drinks. Overall, a pleasant evening.
