“Delightful”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Had a delightful lunch here. All staff were lovely and we felt most welcome. The food was very good value and the wine was delicious. We had a super table outside, the weather was good to us and we had a view of the sea.

“Lovely!!!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Chilled out in a South Spain atmosphere. Loved it a lot. The boatman's board is something that u will no regret if u like tapas-cheese board type stuff.

“Lunch at the Boatyard with friends and pooch.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for an early lunch with friends and our dog. The decor is lovely and there were a number of tables. Staff coped with the five of us having to move inside due to drizzle. Health drinks are tasty and well worth a try. Brunch tortilla lovely and filling. Boatman Picnic very interesting and tasty. Our friends had pizzas which were freshly made and appetising. Atmosphere was good, music quite relaxing and ambience upbeat. All staff were pleasant and engaging, made us feel welcome (even recalled one of our group being in earlier in the week and asking how they had got on).

“Nice lunch away from the heaving beaches of sandbanks”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

Came here for lunch - off the beaten track a little from the sandbanks strip so hoped it wouldn't be as busy as other places. We weren't disappointed. Nice comfy chairs to sit in outside, quick service and scrummy food. Try the fresh fruit juices - they're amazing. I had a salad, which was a little on the small side but was delicious. Will be back.

“excellent lunch”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We had a very pleasant lunch here in lovely surroundings. The staff were all very good too. Highlights, I had the boatyard picnic which was very nice with really lovely potted shrimps amongst lots of other lovely things. The Orange juice was also really nice best I've ever tasted. Everything we had we really enjoyed, we will certainly be back and would highly recommend.
