We visit regularly but this time my meal was quite poor, I had the burger sliders, the chicken tasted very 'off'. I only had one mouthful fortunately but i had quite an upset stomach over the weekend. The waitress was excellent and did offer to replace but the other 2 burger were more than sufficient. Just very disappointing.

The food was excellent, particularly the menu choice. It was a birthday treat for my mum and we weren’t let down. I was disappointed to be led upstairs for our booking as it’s very loud and echo-y up there but where were sat it turned out to not be a problem, and a lovely view!! This was a first visit for both of us. We’re already planning when to come back. Thank you.

Lovely venue. Great menu choices, although sold out of fish and chips and this was only at start of Friday lunch service! But otherwise an enjoyable meal

The vegetarian Dahl was totally bland and worse than food in the Army. I did fill in the feed back card to this effect. Waitress in jeans and stained black t shirt. Came home smelling of burnt oil.... won’t be returning

Lovely restaurant and pleasant atmosphere. Seating isn't the most comfortable on the tables upstairs. And clearing tables was a little slower than expected, but I think that's because of there being space both upstairs and downstairs for diners.

This was our first visit to The Boardwalk, the location is fantastic overlooking the marina and our table only enhanced this. Very attentive service without been intrusive, although this was slightly let down by the female waitress, who struck us had definitely had a long day, she seemed tired. The menu choices are varied with something for everyone. My pork was slightly over cooked and I personally would have preferred my coconut rice to be more coco nutty! However my wife’s steak was cooked to perfection. We had elderly people in our party and access was a little bit of a struggle. A second handrail on the back staircase would have been a benefit. Overall we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and would gladly return, thank you.

Loved the place and the food. It was wet and quiet on Sunday, so service should have been good and it was. Very much enjoyed the food, all excellently done. Thanks!

Had lunch here with 2 friends; we sat upstairs and had a lovely table next to the window overlooking the marina.It was fairly quiet upstairs being a Monday but good for us as we could chat away quite happily. Food was great, good portion size and very tasty. Reasonably priced too and good service so we were all happy.
