Brought my husband for dinner on Tuesday, it wasn't overly busy which was nice, atmosphere was relaxed and calm. We were seated straight away, the new seating was fantastic, able to spread out over the booth, we haven't been for a while so it's the first time seeing it. We ordered bubble & squeak to start, we always order this... More

People came in after us and sat down and were served but nobody came over to us so we have up after about 15 minutes and went to the bar and ordered... More

Both the service and the food are always good and we continually look forward to being served by the young Polish waitress, who is exceptionally professional and courteous.

Normally - were quite weary of chain pubs - but this was amazing! The service, surroundings, drinks and food was incredible! There was nothing we wanted to improve! The food was fast and fresh! It was absolutely delicious & fantastic value for money! A new local for us for sure!

Enjoyed a wonderful meal. Sea Bass was very good, service was excellent. All very reasonably priced. This was our first time at The Boat having recently moved into the area, we will definitely be visiting again. Next time we hope to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine.

Visited with a friend straight from work so it was quite early. We were seated straight away and left to look through the menus, LOTS of great choices, so much so I found it hard to choose. Food was lovely, very tasty and service was friendly throughout. I'd definitely visit again.

I visited with my bridesmaids, mother and Nan the night before my wedding at Hampton Manor; there was 8 of us altogether. It's a lovely pub, nice decor and features, we had a lovely big table in the window. I had the bubble and squeak to start, and others had chorizo skewers and scallops. All we're cooked lovely, except the... More
