I've been to this restaurant 4 times now, and each time the service and the food have got worse. There are very limited options in the Ardgour area for a classy place to eat, but even so, my heart sank when my friends suggested taking me and my partner out for lunch to The Boathouse for a joint birthday celebration. Very sadly, this time the food was almost inedible, super expensive, and the service was beyond bad. We waited and waited and waited to be served - even tho there was only one other table of 4 in. The waitress - who I think is the owner - was so supercilious she didn't look at any of us at any point, never cracked a smile, and spent 99% of her time chatting in a languid manner to the chef across the bar - completely ignoring politely-waving hands, coughs, and Excuse Me's from both tables. When I went to pay, she called me Sir - not once, but twice. I am not only a woman, but I was wearing a flowery dress, and long ear-rings, I have long blonde hair and a 38DD bust!!! Yup, this is how much she didn't bother deigning to even look at her customers who she charged through the nose for a truly awful lunch. We all swore that was the final time we gave The Boathouse any of our custom. A great shame because the location is gorgeous, and the place is nicely decked out. But no matter the limited competition in the area, I'd rather have to go through lambing every month of the year than bother with that place again.
