Ok, we did get complimentary desserts after waiting for an eternity for our mains but dear oh dear - I'd stupidly ordered a deconstructed Shepherds pie but hey, it doesn't suggest that on the Specials menu, which was confusing to say the least (no mention of any Sunday roast, I had to ask the barman) ... and on that showing, the food is majorly overpriced. Seriously, £5 for 3 small lumps of ice cream, with broken up Walkers shortbread fingers ?!!

We had a delicious lunch at the Boathouse - the food and service were both great and I would recommend eating/drinking here.

Chicken looked disappointing on plate but was tasty. White chocolate mousse was more brownie than mouse. Although delicious the description wasn't accurate.

Excellent food and excellent service. My husband also enjoyed the ales. After eating in the restaurant we took our drinks to the riverside tables. It grew dark and the lights came on and twinkled - absolutely charming!

The Boathouse is a fabulous place to visit for a bite to eat and drink with great views and good customer service. The food was delicious and we didn't have to wait long for it to arrive. I will visit again.

We enjoyed a delicious cheese and meat board, along with a very decent (and well priced) bottle of Sauvignon blanc. Excellent and friendly service.

The uneven floor is quaint if a little annoying, and it is hardly the restaurant's fault that there was a large and very noisy table opposite - but the salad was very limited and had what my wife describes as 'gritty bits'. This made it rather expensive for £3.50, part of a meal which was rather expensive for what it was, unfortunately. Service was adequate if not really attentive.

My wife's dish was advertised as having new potatoes. When it came, they had been fried in butter, a lot of which was still in the bottom of the bowl. The staff however very quickly (and without being asked) brought her some boiled new potatoes instead which more than redeemed the situation. The rest of the meal was fine although a little over-priced.

4 of us came for an evening meal after booking a table. On arrival and trying to park, my husband has a blue badge, a car was parked in the disabled space and the manager requested the customer to move his car. This he did so with no argument. There was a technical problem with food ordering so we had a 30 min wait. Because of this the manager offered us free deserts. Overall a very enjoyable experience. We will visit again.

The most over priced underwhelming cheese board I have ever had the misfortune to eat. £9 for four mini slices of cheese of poor quality with six boring crackers and a few grapes and some chutney. Honestly I left after spending £115 and felt short changed because your so called cheese board was such a let down. To balance my review the rest of the meal was excellent.

All food was fantastic service was perfect, only criticism was with the burgers the portions of Chips and Coleslaw were very small. Apart from that perfect also considering we were 15mins late! Thanks

We have booked a table for us and our family members as they were visiting us in Shrewsbury for the first time. Service was outstanding, food delicious and we couldn't have asked for better atmosphere! Everyone was very impressed and amazed with food. Definitely worth recommending for classy and original meal!
