We visited for a friend’s birthday and went to the restaurant part, not the cafe. The cafe is always chaotic with long waits and confusion but the restaurant was great. Lovely food served in reasonable time. We sat outside and the view of the mere was stunning.

Recommended by a friend in answer to a question about where to find a nice place locally for lunch with good food, plenty of parking, good disabled access and low carb options.
Had a great lunch - food was lovely and fresh, presented beautifully and tasted good. All cooked to order so they accommodated every change we asked for. Apart from the inedible flatbreads that came with it, the cheese board was the best we have ever had. Great tasting cheese, beautiful celery and strawberries and a lovely selection of nuts and dried fruit and they bought crackers to replace the flatbreads when asked :-)
Service was efficient but not particularly friendly (apart from one waiter - the guy).
Gorgeous setting, highly recommended.
Thank you boathouse

Had a full English breakfast at one of the most scenic places in England.

The full breakfast was pricey but it consisted of both Tea and a fresh Orange juice with a slice of Orange. Toast with either Homemade Jam or Marmalade. Then onto the full breakfast, black pudding etc.

Dogs are welcome and the place was spotless. Thoroughly recommend, even if only for a cuppa.

Booking essential as this place appears to be very popular. We sat outside on the decking area, as it was such a lovely day and the views over the Mere are spectacular.
My husband is in a wheelchair and was accommodated without any problems.

The staff were friendly and attentive without being overly so. The food was delicious well cooked and presented, and not too expensive. We were not rushed despite it being busy.

I was somewhat apprehensive as we were seated next to a family with children but I need not have worried, whilst the children were a bit noisy they were very well behaved and polite...... which is more than I can say about the drunk adult seated two tables away!!

All in all it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon and I look forward to returning for another delicious meal.

Service was friendly and the food was promptly brought to the table and tasted fine. Sadly the tables were a little haphazard and not cleared. The look of the restaurant wasn't very appealing.....nothing really inviting, but they have no competition so it is well used. I would do something to add to the atmosphere.
