“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Have been meaning to have a meal here for a long time, all I can say is 'why didn't we go sooner' we went early and got the early bird menu, which had such a variety to choose from, each and every course was perfect, service was exceptional, value for money, we will be regulars from now on.

“Great riverside restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

My wife & I have eaten here on a number of occasions, including our 40th wedding anniversary.
The staff and food have always been first rate and the beers are good as well.
A good place to eat for a quite dinner (or lunch) for two, a get together with friends, or a family occasion.

“Outstanding Wedding Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We have eaten at the Boathouse many times, and always been impressed by the quality of food and service. We had the wedding reception for our daughter and new son in law at the Boathouse on Sat 5th Oct 2013. The whole day was absolutely superb. The planning before with Dan,Philip and Adam was clear, thorough and pricing totally transparent. The running of the day was smooth,expertly managed by Philip,and his staff were outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble for them.we had c80 guests during the day and another 40 in he evening, with a live band. The food was unquestionably the best we have ever had at a wedding...guests preordered from a choice of 4 dishes in each of 3 courses....it was hot,fresh and just brilliant. Canapés before the meal were wonderful, and the evening buffet was of the highest standard. Drinks were fairly priced, not inflated for a wedding, and the staff managed to keep everyone's glass topped up without being intrusive. I would thoroughly recommend the Boathouse as a wedding venue, as well as a great venue for a fantastic meal.

“Sunday Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Our party of four adults hadnt booked a table but it wasnt a problem the staff were happy to accomodate us. Its not the first time we have eaten at the Boathouse and returning today we were not disappointed. Today the soup of the day was celerac and stilton which was a bit bland but we enjoyed the rest of the meal, service and venue are very good, like many other trip advisors its hard to give the place a bad word.
