Was disappointed with the quantity or lack of fish in the fish pie, I have eaten there before and was happy, but will try something different next time. The service was good

We were hungry early after a day's walking and were warmly greeted at the Boathouse at about 5.30p.m. We had not reserved, but were shown to a table with a pleasant outlook. Had the most delicious food, shared a cold duck breast salad starter with...More

We arrived too late for lunch and too early for dinner, but this was not a problem. The ploughman's and the kingprawns were very nice. Although the kingprawns portion was rather small. Friendly staff and beautiful terrace.

Found this wonderful place a bit by chance although it is very central to the harbour. Menu, food and staff were great. The price was quite reasonable considering the quality of the food and service.
