“Lovely food, staff very helpful”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Visited October 2013 for a meal with my husband. One of the places that served swordfish, which was done to perfection. I would recommend this establishment to all for good food, good service and reasonable prices. The surroundings of the Ragley Boat Stop are beautiful with the canal at the rear. Will visit again.

“Amazing!!! Just how a pub should be x”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Tonight we visited the Ragley Boat on a colleagues recommendation and I was not disappointed.

The staff created a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all the family. I had steak which was divine, melt in your mouth - with generous portion of chips & a side salad. The rest of my family had scampi, lamb chops & a selection of steaks - cooked to perfection. Clean plates all round :)

Can not wait to go back for my works Christmas Party later this month!

“Disapointed”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I took my wife there on the 25th November for a special meal and was disappointed !.

I had been there previously and had always enjoyed my visits and the food. This was not the same however. I felt that my chops were burnt and I had to ask before the Dessert which had been ordered and paid for was brought to the table, some 55 minutes after it had been ordered.

I would think twice before I went back there.

“good food - great value!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

If good food, cooked fresh, served by welcoming staff, at affordable prices is what you are looking for, then the Ragley Boat Stop is just the ticket. We have had many lunches and dinners with friends and family, and are looking forward to our next visit.
