I have been to the Boatshed many time but today was awful. Firstly I had the Fish & Chips, the Batter was very Chewy, awful. I then had the Carrot Cake for Dessert and this was Stale, I even said to the person who I...paid that I did know what year the Carrot Cake was cooked it was not this year, hard and very crumbly. My visit was a total disaster, not helped by the girl who served us, was not an Asset to The Boatshed, not bothering to take the used plates from our table when she delivered the next course and when asked to just walked away. Come Boatshed you can do better, I want you to do well but today it seemed no one cared.More

On a sunny day this is a great spot for a Sunday lunch. Food choices were better than expected for a lakeside seafood restaurant. All tables outside have a view of the lake, and service was good. As well as the fish and chips there...were some interesting salads, burgers, souvlaki and grilled salmon and barramundi. Everyone was easily catered - adults young and old, children, and dietary requirements. Serves were big, and good value. When you're done grab takeaway coffee or ice cream and do the walk around the lake, or hire a board and go for a paddle. Lots of free parking attached to the premises, though on busy days this can fill up by 1PM.More

Such a happy friendly great place . Met up with a friend that I have got to know from my early morning runs around the lake. We were warmly welcomed and actually sat upstairs out of the freezing cold morning. Fabulous wait staff , perfectly...prepared food and nothing was too much trouble..... the BEST organic turmeric latte’s Outstanding setting in front of the lake made for a great relaxing catch up. Not rushed and great prices. All Covid protocols in place Definitely a winner - we loved it 😘More

We celebrated a birthday at the Boatshed Cafe at lunchtime today. The food was lovely, the service was friendly with great attention to detail. We were very thankful that the lady we spoke on the phone suggested we book for 12 o’ clock to avoid...the busiest time. The floor plan which was perfect for the COVID era. Most enjoyable. We can highly recommend a visit.More

Repeat visit. With COVID restrictions they accommodated us well. Service was prompt and courteous. Food was great. Unfortunately the lift was not working which made access for my 93yo mum difficult.

Yes, there are also tables on the ground floor .If I remember well, maybe a bit rough the surface, but no stairs.
