The Farndon Boathouse was recommended by the Hotel we were staying in and being only five minutes away by car, it was ideally placed. We visited during the Christmas party season so we had a early time for our meal at 6.30. The place is very well laid out and whilst we only couldn't look around all of the restaurant... More

Myself and my partner have visited the boathouse on various occasions and have never had anything to complain about, ok the drinks are perhaps a little pricey but you know that before you go so you just get on with it. This lead us to book New Year's Eve celebrations with family there. At £75 per person this is a... More

Our party of four went on Xmas Eve. Reserved table was ready. Restaurant was warm and cozy. Live music from a jazz band. Being Xmas it was not the full menu, only a special menu was available, but there was still plenty of choice. Three lovely courses for £25. Service was excellent from very friendly staff. Couldn't fault it. We... More

Reviews read well, looks nice, priced to expect good things... That's where it ended. Flat iron steak, only served pink, no choice to cool to your liking, but pinks good with me... So ordered it. Steak arrived, blu. One cut into it filled the plate with blood, was almost cold in the middle, I tried to eat it but the... More

Serving the wrong starter, inattentive to table in a pretty empty restaurant … a shame. But the reasonably-priced (£12.95) Christmas turkey was copious, and we disagreed how tasty it and all the trimmings were. The Smoked Haddock was uninteresting, the Christmas Puds were poor, and the so-called Petits Fours were nothing of the sort (they were miniature desserts, but that... More

Great meals, my parter had the sirloin steak and up graded with the surf and turf, I had the Thai fish bowl. Compliments to the chef on the fish bowl, it was one of the best main courses I've ever had, steak was also great. Lovely atmosphere and staff are friendly and helpful.

Decided on The Boathouse for a Christmas dinner for seven of us this year. The food was really good though the beef was slightly tough. Other than that it was an excellent meal with really good service. No horrible music blaring out just a lovely Christmas atmosphere. Just need to tenderise the beef a little. Thanks to all at The...
