Grahams food is always delicious and the young staff were kind and considerate. My friend suggested that they have gluten free bread with the soup maybe store some in the freezer. We came at 2.30pm and still there at 6.45pm lovely atmosphere for 2 women to sit and have a chat

Visited twice during our weekend. Booking system excellent. Loved the outdoor seating in pretty, peaceful garden. Very friendly, attentive professional staff. That’s why we returned. Also enjoyed great cocktail. Tempura prawns, Cajun chips and a chilled glass of wine just perfect on a sunny Sunday reading the papers ! Thanks to staff for great times. Even on the rainy day under the brolly!

The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Service was quick and the food was good what more can you ask for. A staff member with a long beard may have been called Fraser and was great. Thoroughly recommend the Boathouse
