The fish was outstanding, nice homemade chips, soup was delicious, kids mac cheese was good and a decent sized portion, lobster was fresh and good value, scampi was very tasty. We ate outside and the atmosphere was very good. Staff forgot one of our dishes, but not a major problem as it was dealt with promptly and they apologised. Personally, I like peas with my fish and chips.

Made 2 bookings: 1st booking: Table not ready for 15 mins, then not in Larder room where we'd booked. Then took 1 hour for starters, 1 of which was cold! After that food & service was better & they didn't charge for the starters. 2nd booking: Table on time but still not i Larder room where we'd booked. Food & service was ok.

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at The Boathouse. Were shown to our table quickly, in the larder which was quieter than the main restaurant, our order taken, drinks arrived soon thereafter and there was only a very small wait for our food to arrive. The restaurant was extremely busy so could understand this. My husband had the battered smoked haddock which he said was delicious. I had the king prawn scampi which too was delicious. We had ice cream desserts to follow which were yummy. Overall a lovely lunch and will definitely return. Took advantage of the government dine out scheme and our bill was less than £20. Fantastic!

Excellent restaurant all round. Good covid19 procedures, we were lucky enough to go on a Wednesday and took advantage of the 'eat out to help out' scheme, no reduction in quality and would recommend the scallops and smoked haddock crepe. We booked as it was dog friendly and there was plenty of room for him too. The staff were fantastic and really good fun.

We were very welcomed and promptly taken to our socially distanced table. We ordered quickly for a great choice for adults and children. All meals were very tasty and my daughter enjoyed her lobster. All 50% off at the moment on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday but we would go again out with this deal.

Food was good as was the company but there were a few dogs in the bar some barking occasionally !!! I understand it is a dog friendly place but personally I’m of the opinion no animals should be in areas where food is served.
