Turned up here for lunch and as we had dogs with us needed to sit outside. Noticed a large oil slick on floor under and adjacent to tables so got up and walked off.

Not really a good impression.

We stayed in Penzance for 4 days and ended up in the boatshed twice for an evening meal.

We arrived quite late for food on our first visit, and yet the staff were very accomodating. The food was excellent, and so was the atmosphere.

Contemplating our last meal before heading home, we decided that the boatshed was the place to go. We were welcomed as friends as we entered, and my 5 year old daughter was delighted that she had been remembered.

Upon asking, we were told that they had no sausages for the kids meal. However, after a short period... Lindsay (our waitress) came back with news that they had sent somebody to acquire some just for us. This was excellent service!

Again, Lindsay was great throughout the evening and my daughter even gave her a couple of hugs and told her that she loved her before we headed home.

We will definitely be dining here again, and would recommend this place to anybody.

As a side note, they were in fact very busy during our last meal. And I see many reviews on here about the wait. To confirm, we had to wait also, though it was not long enough to not be forgiven, and we were checked on constantly by the staff. When the food arrived, it was perfect, and definitely worth the wait! Do not let this put you off!

What a lovely place. After a hectic day of surfing and dolphin watching, we ended up here with 2 very hungry children and 2 equally hungry adults. The waitresses were amazing and quick to offer suggestions and even quicker with our meals. Wonderful local fish and great vegetarian options too. A fitting and fulfilling end to our short Cornwall visit.

Had been recommended so booked a Sunday dinner. Had a nice table and drinks and orders taken quickly, however, we were seated at 6.30 and our food didn’t arrive until 7.45. We had our 5 and 8 years olds with us and although they behaved very well and we kept them quiet and hour and 15 min wait is pushing it for adults let alone kids, therefore we didn’t bother to have dessert as could have been there all night.

Another point was that when we had been there 45mins and finished our drinks waitress seemed annoyed that we asked to order another round.

Food was alright but not quite worth the very long wait. If the food came out quicker it would have been a great night and I would have had zero complaints

Had the sea bass fillets for my main and a chocolate torte for pudding; the sea bass was really well cooked and seasoned and the torte was awesome; highly recommend these.

Stick to fish and I think you’ll do just fine here ...
