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.

The service was great, very attentive even though the restaurant was busy. The food was so good and came out quickly from first ordering, I'd highly recommend the halloumi burger and freshly made cookie with raspberry ripple ice-cream! All in all a great evening, we shall be returning.

General feedback is not great, what made it a good afternoon was the weather. The service was polite but slow and pretty much what I've tended to expect when I visit the Boardwalk, I could also hear other people muttering the same thing around us. The place seems to be being run by young people, there is nobody a little older to delegate and run things. The food was average at best, tasteless and greasy fish and chips and certainly not value for money. Was told twice to change our deserts as they had run out of ice cream, which going back to my point earlier, if extra ice cream had been planned and ordered in based on the weather being hotter than normal, this would have not happened. Come on Boardwalk Management - step it up as there are better places around to eat and drink!

This was our first visit, chosen because it was convenient for meeting relatives following my heart attack. Prompt, courteous and attentive service is always a plus. Couple this with a wide-ranging menu and well-prepared food and you have a clear incentive for a return visit.

The restaurant has no atmosphere it is boring not cosy, too bright and music to loud. The food is to expensive and not much choice. its a shame because of the location I really want it to be nice.
