Not corners cut with food in this pub. Really fresh everything and good value. Bar manager so pleasant to strangers. Fantastic beer and great location by the river. Fyi nesting peregrines here too!

Support the people who try to do things write and have a meal!

“EXCELLENT FOOD, NICE ATMOSPHERE”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Went as a four person meal. Was sat on the balcony, which is strange but very nice. The food and atmosphere is excellent, and the staff very friendly and helpful. Look out for the specials board some very nice food indeed. Thank you.

“Best in the area- bar none!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I had the honor of visiting Wales some few years ago and as I traveled I picked up small hints from other travelers about places to visit and great places to eat or just have a pint with friends. The Boat Inn is a combination of a great time, good food, and a friendly atmosphere for the locals to a perfect stranger who just drops by (and who doesn't stay a stranger long because the locals won't hear of it!). I had a grand time here, enough that way out here in sunny Southern California in the USA I still highly recommend this place. It's on the River Wye, has a castle that is allegedly the oldest in Britain, and it still guards it's beer well along its ancient borders against the Sassenachs who live on the other side of the River...so if you're not English (or even if you are!) this is a great place to come and make new friends! I know I did!
