My husband and I visited The Boathouse for lunch one day recently and were pleasantly surprised at the choice on the menu. The only downside at lunch was that my husband ordered a GF starter and it turned up with ordinary bread! Thankfully, we noticed.

We arrived late having travelled down after work on a Friday, the staff were extremely welcoming and the kitchen was still open at 9.30pm for us to order food. Our room was excellent with loads of space and a beautiful view, really clean too. After a peaceful nights sleep we were treated to a delicious breakfast with lots of choice....

Stayed at the Boat House for two nights in early April. Excellent comfortable room with sea view. Ate in the restaurant both nights as the food was so good. Three decent real ales on. Pleasant bar and restaurant with friendly helpful staff. Liked it so much we've booked another weekend in September

We wanted to find somewhere special to take a dear friend for a belated celebration of her 80th Birthday with our parents. On the advice of her son we chose the Boat House and what an inspired choice it proved. Another reason for choosing the restaurant was the extensive glutton free options available on the menu, which was essential for...

Arrived at 1.20 on a Sunday for lunch. Requested a table for 4 from the surly woman behind the bar. We were grudgingly given one when we pointed out the the tables were not all reserved as she suggested. Sat down, decided on the food and went back to the surly bar staff to order to be told by the...

We had a meal at The Boathouse on a Saturday evening whilst on a short break to the Island. Superb quality food, without being too fussy. Attentive staff. Very relaxing ambiance and very happy to recommend.
