We enjoyed lunch at The Boardwalk at the weekend and it was delicious. The service was spot on and I look forward to visiting again soon.

A first time visit for myself, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Loved the background music also from my era.

Good food and very good service. Average price. Only problem is the fact that the kitchen shuts down between services at a peak eating time.

Great food and well-presented in a very attractive and friendly-feeling restaurant overlooking the marina. Excellent and prompt service. Good choice of wines and beers. A brief note to the proprietors . . . far too much on the plate.

Not doing any tables for 2 by the window, despite being the only people in there. Requested additional ketchup but this never came. A little lacking in atmosphere. More main options would be nice?

We were a little disappointed with the menu for dinner, we personally feel that The boardwalk is more for a lunch time option rather than evening meal. The service wasn't great had to wait lengthy periods for food to come out and didn't have three options available on the menu. We had to ask for another drink after waiting some time without a drink. There was a large party dining this particular night that had pre ordered food, if that was the case, you should have anticipated a higher quantity of popular dishes such as the sea bass as we were told they'd ran out.

Table squeezed in where there was little space. Staff nowhere to be seen when we were ready for dessert. Waited some time then got up and waited by the till to pay.

I've visited before and had the vegetarian mezze.... This was when it was served with the aubergine slices as opposed to the pomodoro peppers.... Unfortunately they were incredibly spicy, even though the spicy level is supposed to vary, they were literally inedible... Maybe change the antipasti vegetable? Apart from that a great meal, my mother's tapas was really nice and so was the fish and chips

Very nice wine and cocktails. Attentive friendly service. Good portion sizes. Would recommend the sweet potato fries rather than the chunky chips.

Had a really lovely meal, staff friendly & helpful but not intrusive. Our main courses were really good, only disappointment was our starters - we had chicken wings & calamari, both were disappointing (wings were dry and over cooked, squid was very overdone). Otherwise, we had a lovely meal.

First time at the Broadwalk and it was absolutely lovely! Staff were really friendly, helpful and accommodating. Lovely atmosphere in the bar and dining area. Food was tasty, lots of flavour and nice size portion (saved room for desert) drinks and food were reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend for a drink or dinner!

The food was quite expensive for what you got. You can pay the same price for a much nicer and somewhat larger portion of a kebab/yakitori stick down the road at the bulls head. However, the food received was nice still. Atmosphere was very quiet for a Saturday night, which also made me a little wary here as I have been before now and it’s been so busy so not sure if somethings happened to change that recently.

Enjoyed a lovey meal after our boat trip on the swan. We had our son and daughter in law and two young grandchildren with us. The upstairs restaurant is very child friendly only niggle was length of time waiting for desserts and children were starting to get very restless but we could see that you were very busy. Many thanks.

I had heard great things about The Boardwalk...but I was so disappointed. Atmosphere was good, our waiter was great but the food was awful and overpriced. I ordered tapas and the salad didn’t come with the croutons it was supposed to. A friend’s chicken dish was over cooked and my other friend couldn’t stomach the lamb kofta. We were the last table to be served before final orders were submitted to the kitchen but that’s no excuse. The Boardwalk needs to up its game and lower its prices if its to tempt me and my friends back.
