On the 19th Feb a group of 21 visited The Boat House for the first time.To start with we were warmly greeted by the co-owner Emma.From this point our visit could not in anyway be faulted. The Starters were ample and very well presented.We then went to the main course all of which in our case were roasts with a...

20 covers. The boathouse coped admirably. Exceptional service and the manageress was extremely friendly and made us most welcome. Lovely Sunday lunch. The restaurant is very bright and in the summer must be wonderful with the views of the river. Will be back.

Visited with my partner for a meal and couldn't have asked for better! Cocktails to die for , and the most amazing Steak! The food was fresh and tasty. The restaurant manager was on hand to greet us and the whole experience was lovely! Not a bad word to say , very pleased.

So I wouldn't normally review a place that we popped in for just a drink, but I think this place is definitely worthy of some positive feedback. We popped in for an afternoon drink overlooking the river. Beautiful setting. This place will be wonderful when the sun is out! The hospitality was excellent. Emma is extremely warm, welcoming and friendly....

5 of us went out for an evening meal, and immediately felt welcome as soon as we entered the door. The restaurant has been taken over recently by new management, run by Paul and Emma, who are two of the loveliest people, let alone restaurant owners I've met. The hospitality we experienced was really lovely, the food was all fresh,...

I went with my boyfriend on a bank holiday. We arrived just after 11.30am and it was closed, but the owner welcomed us in and served us coffees anyway until the kitchen opened at 12. She didn't have to do that as we would have just waited outside anyway. It was above and beyond and very kind. As soon as...

Visited lunchtime. Our second visit. We had looked forward to coming again as we had enjoyed the food so much last time. It was perfectly cooked full of flavour and ingredients were well matched. There was a wide variety of dishes. On this occasion the menu had shrunk significantly. This time one of us had lemon and thyme stuffed chicken...

Booked at table for 8 to celebrate family birthdays. Have seen mixed reviews about this place, but rest assured the service was great; kept being asked if we had enough drinks and if food was OK. All of which was. Since the refurbishment the place is light and airy and has a welcome feel to it. Staff very friendly and...
