“Great setting, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

Lovely terrace overlooking the Thames. Although it didn't seem very busy we had to wait over 40 minutes for a burger and some scampi. The burger was OK, but nothing to write home about. The scampi were nice but few, the peas wew very odd looking, all wrinkly and dried up. Nice chunky chips. The service was friendly and charming.

“Very good pub food, great price and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

First time we've eaten at the Boat House in Wallingford..... the team there did a superb job, managed to co-ordinate 19 people over 5 tables and get all the food there within five minutes or so of eachother! No mean feat. The food itself was really excellent pub food, really nicely cooked and presented. A really superb effort by everyone. Will be especially pleasant as the summer kicks in and you can sit outside and enjoy the wonderful riverside view of Wallingford bridge. Highly recommended, fine service and great value!!

“Great food with low bier prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

The Boat House has a brand new team that have turned this pub into a really friendly local with its fascinating Thames side location. This plus a good selection of great pub food combined with some of the best bier prices I have seen anywhere make it a 'must visit' if you are coming to Wallingford. I found food service to be very fast when we had lunch there today, but I am guessing there may be times when a bit of understanding over staff workload is needed, as with any other pub at a popular location.

I have had a great time having lunch with my family at the pub. The view on the Thames was beautiful and the food was quality. Would definitely come back

“celebratory family lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

Booked a table here for 7+pushchair for my daughter, son in law and eldest grandson and my sister, her husband and daughter, though the star was my new grandson of 2 weeks. The staff were great even decorating the table with blue flowers, balloon and cuddly toy, and the service was good. The food was excellent and enjoyed by all, even managing to cook my blue steak to perfection.
