Firstly we visited as a restaurant not a hotel. This restaurant has a location and view on a lovely day that is second to none, however, the service is a lot to be desired. Went on Mothers day, £29.99 3 courses with a bottle of wine included. The food was ok..ish. It was our decision to sit outside but the...

For Actual reviews on this place: also look up Rare Cow. Previously called the Rare Cow, we knew it had changed hands, however they have not changed the website or menu on line, so we went for a company meal expecting something a bit more up-market/classy and we got basic pub food at best. We decided to give it a...

Didn't eat here but called in for a drink. The landlady was so welcoming. She brought us bread and oil dips. Loved the style and warmth of this delightful riverside restaurant and thought the menu looked great.

We visited this bar/restaurant on a Saturday afternoon whilst visiting the area. We were two couples staying at a local hotel. The welcome was very warm and friendly from Emma who made amazing gin and tonics with line and shaved cucumber - she even brought us a complimentary platter of bread and olive oil. We didn't eat as we had...

We wanted a restaurant as an alternative to the hotel we were staying at. This was within walking distance and well worth the visit. I would not describe it as haute cuisine but good above average food and service. I got the impression it was very recently under new management and that the website had yet to be updated. We...

The Starters were ample and very well presented.We then went to the main course all of which in our case were roasts with a...

20 covers. The boathouse coped admirably. Exceptional service and the manageress was extremely friendly and made us most welcome. Lovely Sunday lunch. The restaurant is very bright and in the summer must be wonderful with the views of the river. Will be back.
