Nice place to eat and good service food was served very quickly and was very impressed. Only downfall was it was a little over priced for what it was. Other than that nice place.

This has to be the best pub by far. The food, the views and the drink is always good. I come here every Sunday with my family and we love it and so do the kids as when we leave they go to the arcade

Food was ok at this pub, lots of pub classics on the menu. I had the 'lite bite' of cod fillet and chips and it was plenty big enough. Prices average and good portion sizes. Pub was pretty noisy and children were running around everywhere. It was the holidays though so to be expected. Great sea views and comfy seats.

The is a great place to stop for refreshment after a long day on the beach. It does get rather busy at times, but if you can get a table the food and service are great. There is a soft play area for the little ones and numerous water bowls for the dogs.

Took the Grandchildren to see Santa Claus again this year and as usual they absolutely love the Boathouse children's menu, the xmas decorations are fantastic as always. Sally and her team always make you feel welcome with a warm atmosphere in the pub, great log burner and great selection at the bar, love the place. Steve & Pauline.

Thank steve b
