Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

One of the best Sunday roast we ever had! Beef sirloin gorgeous, Yorkshire pudding large and crispy, veg and potatoes lovely. Ample gravy and a good size plate. My wife did think the potatoes could have been a bit more crispy but this is personal...preference- they were delicious anyway. Cherry cheesecake and ice cream for dessert nice too. The ladies serving were very attentive and polite. There is a dog friendly and non dog friendly seating area.More

This was our first visit here although we have visited Falmouth many times. The staff were very friendly and provided great service in the restaurant. The restaurant had a great atmosphere with every table taken. The menu had a small but good selection of dishes...and there were a couple of specials. The lamb shank was delicious- one of the specials. The fish pie was ok- it lacked flavour but was nicely cooked. Overall a good experience and we would certainly dine there again.More

We booked for mid afternoon, for a Sunday Roast, thinking the rush would be over - it was but, our food still took over an hour to come out and was, sadly, at best tepid. The waitress was very understanding and I imagine it wasn't...her first problem if the day. They did deal with our problem but we ended up with a pizza elsewhere!More

After a long walk I really need a cold beer & some good food and the Boatman did not disappoint. The first thing I noticed that there was a good crowd of people happily eating drinking chatting , giving the pub / restaurant a really...good buzz. Our table was under the canopy offering a great view of the bay. We ordered fish & chips and I could not fault it, delivery was quick and the food look great & tasted great, loved it and the beer was really cold, well done 👏 thanks every one.More

The meal was pleasant enough, but not exceptional. This is pub grub not fine dining. I recommend the Cajun prawn snd samphire starter, great flavours. The menu is limited and expected to see more local seafood, worth checking the webpage menu before booking. We were...a party of four, one really enjoyed the meal, average for the other three. Really pleased we were recommended this place however, because the view from the upper floor is fabulous and without the recommendation, we would not have ventured that far out through town.More
