This is one of the best if not best pubs I have been to. the location is stunning and the food is outstanding. good range of drinks too. Service can be a bit slow but everything was so amazing we didn't care.

Lovely setting with friendly, hospitable staff and we were excited to order from the menu. 'Pie Tuesday' was a nonsense as there were only 4 beef and one other flavour pie left! We had to choose something from a VERY limited menu as most of it wasn't available. It was only about 5pm! We requested that we have the free... More

Maybe we caught this place on a bad day - have previously visited for a drink and decided to pop in for a quick lunch off the fixed price two course menu. Sadly the Mac N Cheese was unavailable. The whitebait starter was served to us promptly on the decked terrace but after that we seemed forgotten. After a 45... More

Tried to order half a dozen things on the menu with no joy. Then tried to order side dishes instead - no joy! Pub was a mess with surly staff and no interest in conversation with customers, collecting an empty glass or clearing a plate. Really disappointed. Clearly relying on their beautiful location.

We stayed at The Boathouse for an Easter bank holiday weekend break and really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful establishment. it is set right on the banks of the river and it was a pleasure to sit on the balcony with a drink and watch the boats go by so very peaceful. Our room was very clean and spacious... More

The waitress was very helpful and catered for my daughter and my gluten intolerance by arranging an alternative food choice off the menu.

Thank you for a lovely meal. Beautiful setting for a pub, dog friendly - dog bed and treats... fab idea! Veggie food options really good, curry quite spicey but I was given lots of yogart and it was yummy. Baked camembert sharer to start was amazing and the chocolate fondant pudding finished it off perfectly. I had to roll myself... More

Came here for a drink en route to home. Lovely setting here. Sat looking out over the canal. Plenty of benches outside so in the summer this would be ideal to come to, to sit by the water. There is a car park here so it's good for easy access to get to if driving. Unfortunately there were no hot... More

We held a memorial meal for a family member at the Boathouse and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful experience. From start to finish all the staff were very helpful and friendly. The Manager, Scott, is an absolute star and really goes the 'extra mile' to help, without making you feel it's any trouble. He really helped to... More
