Visited with friends for lunch. The food as always is good. The salmon with prawns was beautifully cooked although the prawn sauce lacked flavour. One member of the party requested jacket potato with crab and prawns that was not on the menu and this was not a problem.

We ate here with friends, who found this place. Very nicely decorated, but not too formal, which made for a very pleasant and comfortable ambience. Staff were very friendly and the menu had a great choice of dishes. We all ordered something different and it was all fresh and beautifully cooked and well presented. We will most definitely be eating here again.

Chose the Boat House based on search and recommendations here must say that we were not disappointed! We were two families with older children and when we first entered the pub the decor and size of the place was very pleasant and tastefully modern. The food was lovely and the menu was really varied to all tastes (not just fish). The daily special of Clovelly Crab and Prawn salad was huge and such a treat. We also had the blackened chicken, fish pie and delicious home made lasagne. Because we all had starters we didn't have room for dessert, but service was friendly and and fast. Will be returning to try another dish! We went in the evening so the lights across the water (Appledore) made a lovely backdrop. I would recommend making a reservation if visiting during busy times.

We ate here recently on a Saturday night. Unfortunately, even though there were two of us, we picked a night with 2 large parties which meant we did have to wait a little while! However the food was fantastic, fresh and perfectly cooked. I would definitely recommend The Boathouse, for all parties types and all diets. They have a vast selections of fresh fish, as well as a large selection of non fish dishes. It may be a bit pricy but certainly worth it!
