Always have a great time here. Friendly staff and plenty of choice with drinks. Small menu for food but all of it is top notch. Definitely worth the walk up the hill to reach it!

We have had a great experience here today with what has got to be one of the best roast dinners I have ever had. The portions were large and the quality of food great! Staff very chatty and friendly. Dogs welcome too

Having read positive reviews, and viewed The Boathouse website, it looked like a good place for a family Sunday roast. Staff were friendly, the interior pleasant with great views, but I have to be honest and say that our meal was very disappointing. The food...More

A lovely pub. Up the hill and out of the the main thoroughfare it offers scrumptious food, great beer, stupendous views and the owner has a great taste in music too. Definitely recommend this to people who don't like the hubbub of the main town.

We ate here with our three young grandchildren so a relaxed environment with a typical kids menu was a must. It was an inspired choice. On a rain threatened night we sat on the covered balcony (book in advance- was busy!). Typical chicken,burger,fish finger stuff...More

Warm and friendly welcome - awesome food, great range of beers and one of the best views in Falmouth. What's not to like? We'd go again.

Hi Roy & Sarah, We've worked really hard since 2003 to try and make the Boathouse a welcoming pub that cooks great homemade food, so we're really pleased that you like us! Hope to see you soon. Cheers

Hi Tina, We think there's not many better things than lovely fresh seafood, especially when accompanied by chilled white wine! Glad you could join us. Cheers

A glorious pub with spectacular views and a surprising range of good food - but mostly a refreshing stalwart against the mindless trend toward craft beer. The faint of heart may use caution around the often ribald wit of the regulars.

Hello Rob, Thanks for the kind words (and for teaching me a new one - ribald! 👍). The regulars are super friendly too. Cheers

Didn't see your question until now. Would have been a Saturday round 1 to 2 p.m. for lunch.
