What better way than to finish a weekend with a quality musician/group? Definitely worth the visit. Pleased to come along and show support for some truly great musicians.

So many venues make a right hash of the English favourite lunch. The Boathouse is certainly not in that group. The ambience is warm and friendly and the staff are very attentive. But the star of the show is, of course, the lunch itself. What...More

Have been dining here for several years. Called in this afternoon on a whim & the food was excellent. A lot of restaurants " REST ON ONE'S LAURELS", The Boathouse continues to provide great food.
