We went tonight for dinner and all the food was great..service was attentive and brilliant too. It’s not the first time I go,and the food is persistently good quality. I would recommend it even on a busy Saturday night.

It was great to sit outside right next to the Thames watching the ducks and boats. The Boat House is quite large and there is a large choice on the menu.

Tired decor, neglected throughout, grubby and not at all looked after. Why oh why do large pub companies run their pubs so badly? Same old menus everywhere, burgers done 3 or 4 ways, meat pies, fish & chips...no inventiveness or flair, boring & uninspired menu,...More
