“Terrible Service”
Reviewed 11 September 2009

We arrived for lunch at 12.30pm, as booked. Unfortunately, our starters were slow in coming but at 1.43pm our main course of fish had not arrived and we had to leave. The owner said it was because it was cooked to order. Herrings, seabass and pollock does not take over an hour to cook. Only go to this restaurant if you have time to spare.

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 9 July 2009

My wife and her friend went to the Boathouse on a Thurs night for the 4 course special for 25pounds and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was busy enough to give it a buzz and the overall experience was excellent. The owners were very courteous and the staff were professional. The food was of a very high standard and the value overall was fantastic. In these tough economic times, restaurant owners have to be wise to provide those who are still putting money through there tills the best experience possible and the Boathouse did this.

“Great food, relaxed atmosphere and friendly hosts”
Reviewed 1 July 2009

We hadn't eaten here since the new owners took charge about a year ago. What a pleasant surprise! The two proprietors greeted us in a friendly but not intrusive manner, and guided us through menu selections that delighted us both, accompanied by a superb Lebanese red wine. A memorable evening out, which for the quality of the food was extremely well-priced.
