Very friendly and helpful staff with a beautiful view of the lake. Food standard but well presented- only thing negative to say is the prices of the drinks, particularly the wine. I paid £11 for a large glass of white.

I have eaten at this "pub" a few times and been let down each time. The last occasion though was the worst. I had the burger, thinking you can't go wrong with that. Apparently you can...

The boathouse is in a beautiful location but is let down by the quality of food on offer. Service is good. Choice is average. Prices are expensive for the food delivered. So unfortunate as we live nearby and would have visited more regularly if prices were reduced or food was improved. Sorry to write a poor review but we have... More
