We planned on coming to The Boathouse for a meal with family. We arrived at 12 as per advice from the website which stated the opening times as 12-12 on a Saturday; it was advised that food was served from 12.30-2pm. 6 of us waited...More

My sincere apologies,we had a staffing situation and opened later than planned,sorry your Grandad only met the kitchen porter,who being only 17 is not used to meeting the public,hence his nervous response.

The Boathouse is our favourite pub that we discovered whilst on holiday in Falmouth. The staff were amazing, the service friendly and warm but professional. The food was delicious, the locals were friendly and the view over the marina was out of this world. The...More

Always have a great time here. Friendly staff and plenty of choice with drinks. Small menu for food but all of it is top notch. Definitely worth the walk up the hill to reach it!

A lovely pub. Up the hill and out of the the main thoroughfare it offers scrumptious food, great beer, stupendous views and the owner has a great taste in music too. Definitely recommend this to people who don't like the hubbub of the main town.
