They've got a superb location along the Thames and provide great view outside. Stuff were friendly enough to enjoy even my daughter made a bit mess. If fancy for a sweet, Eton Mess is worth trying.

Having one of the best locations in Windsor I was very excited when I heard there was new management and we would have a new restaurant. However the new owners don't seem to have done any market research to understand customers needs. Issue # 1...More

Sorry you were led to believe that the Boatman Pub-Food-Venue was still the Riverhouse restaurant under new management. As I am sure you can understand, the business cannot survive just on a summer of guests sitting outside by the river - so changed to an...More

Any vegetarians beware... The Sunday vegetarian roast consisted solely of roast vegetables which the meateaters had as accompaniments to their main dish. When I asked where the protein was I was brought a side salad with SUGARED cashew nuts.

Noticed from a local newspaper that their management company has gone under administration - this place is full of cost saving, and most regrettably they start with food. The worst fish & chips i had last year. Waste of terrific opportunity.

This place has a great location, but it seems to somehow miss the opportunity to use is. The food was OK, the service was hopeless and the wine list poor.
