Third time we’ve been in the last year or two. Always with friends or family members. The setting is excellent and the decor and set out lovely. Most importantly the staff are incredibly welcoming and fun and the food superb. We have had different types of cuisine on each occasion, from Thai to good old fashioned winter comfort food last week. Clean plates all round as usual and a happy drive home.

Been on numerous occasions and the food has always been 5☆
But each time iv been the service has gone down hill drastically in the last 18 months. Such a shame as that will be the last time I visit. No one to welcome u no one to serve u after waiting 8-10 mins for a drink. A customer had to call for staff to serve us. Waited 45 -55 mins for our starters with only 5 other customers waiting. Never once asked if everything was ok throughout our starter or main course . Lovely food but with the wrong waiting staff to compliment it. Such a shame !!

Had a meal here Over the Christmas hols, I have to say pretty disappointing overall. Most of the food appears to be bought in pre-prepared. Don't know if they actually have a chef or just heater uppers? Not good enough for the prices they charge. Gave them the benefit of the doubt the last time as that wasn't great but this time they just had skinny fries instead of proper chips! McDonald's actually do better ones than these. The fish n chips one of us had were nice though. Oh and another thing, please be careful when driving in if I take is misty as someone quite ignorantly makes a habit of parking a Chrysler at right angles to the car park, seems to be to lazy to park in an actual space! I think it is a member of staff?

Staved overnight at the Boatside Inn. The accommodation was superb. Roomy spotlessly clean, very modern and stylish. I could not fault the place. We also ate here, dinner and breakfast. Both were top quality. Great diner menus with a nice choice of beer. Massive choice of breakfast options too. The location is very handy for the Hadrian's Wall cycle route. It's right on the route. First class. Service from lovely people.
