We have had rather bad luck recently with our choice of restaurants. None of the meals have lived up to expectations but thankfully, this run of misfortune ended the other Sunday lunchtime with a trip to Farndon Boathouse with a much better than expected late afternoon lunch. I had reviewed the Boathouse before and been less than pleased with our... More

Visited an a sat night. This was my first ever visit. The service and the ambiance were great. Had the scallops for starter and although nice, I've had a lot better. My boyfriend had ham hock and again, we've had better. My main was fish and chips which was perfect - just what I wanted. My boyfriend had a Thai... More

Our first visit was on Saturday evening. The venue was busy, but not overcrowded. Very nice venue, good atmosphere, great Service. The Peroni tasted of cleaner, but was taken off immediately and my drink replaced. Tomatoe and red pepper soup was delicious. My wife enjoying goats cheese, although the two pieces were exceptionally small. The gourmet burger was very nice,... More

Visited this restaurant with partner and friends. First course was lovely. Myself and my friend both chose the macaroni cheese which which turned out to be inedible as it was tasteless and extremely dry to the point the macaroni had clumped together. We both left over half of it. The food here is quite expensive and I would have complained... More

We visited to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We both had a roast pork dinner. It was excellent, very tasty, beautifully cooked vegetables. Excellent service too. It all helped to make our day special. We visit quite often and we never have a disappointing meal.

Drove for an hour to this place through countryside, main roads and eventually . . . a housing estate! Despite what appears to be an incredibly unlikely journey's end, the location is actually delightful, right beside the marina and with ample parking. It is my birthday and my wife is cooking tonight, so as we only wanted a snack we... More

We decided to book a table at the Boathouse for Sunday lunch today. We are long time customers of the restaurant, but for no real reason, haven't been for a while. There was a fantastic atmosphere in the restaurant today, as it was exceedingly busy. I have always found that the whole set up in there is really very relaxing,... More

A Sunday early evening meal for a party of seven people. I cannot fault the service or the excellent location but the meal I chose was disappointing in quality. The nut roast was anything but nut nor roast. It was over seasoned and tasted of sage and onion stuffing mix. It lacked taste and flavour, apart from Paxo. You should... More

We come here quite often and even though it can be expensive, the whole experience is worth it. The staff are friendly and they have always gone out of their way to make our evening enjoyable. The menu always has both interesting and new dishes, as well as more familiar foods so people with different tastes can feel like there... More
