First visit and it was lovely. Took a while to order the food For the 4 of us on the app but that was probably our own fault! Very nice fish finger wrap with fries and glass of rosé for me sitting by the window watching the people and the boats. Will definitely visit again!

It was my first drinks and dining outing since lockdown, and it was a lovely way to start! I felt comfortable, there were clear measures that had been put into place and were being followed, the staff were friendly, and the food was delish! Thank you!

Just booked for drinks - the booking process was easy, greeted with a smile, requested to sign in and sanitise our hands (as I would expect every reputable establishment to do), shown to our table and advised how to request drinks. All very friendly and straight forward, in fact, I think I prefer this way of drinking than standing at the bar and hoping the bar tender will remember who is next to be served :)

Very well organised and all social distancing adhered to. App easy to use. I actually prefer there being less people so close by when dining out. Food was delicious, as always.

Have always enjoyed visiting the Boardwalk. It’s one of my favourite places. Particularly enjoy the tapas and snacks. First visit after lockdown on Saturday. Good to be back and appreciate the safety procedures due to COVID-19. However found the ordering system via mobile phone using scan and viewing the menu a little frustrating.

Great first visit after reopening, the new systems set up work well and help maintain social distancing but doesn’t deter from your experience. We’ve missed the food and glad it’s still at its usual high standard. Glad to see everyone back.

Ordering and paying for food was relatively simple. Service was good & we felt well distanced from other diners. I felt the dining area was too hot..... it was a sunny evening and no windows were open for fresh air. A nice stroll around the marina afterwards helped us to cool down 🙂

I cannot give five stars for the atmosphere, which was unavoidably odd due to the circumstances. This is not a complaint, but just a reflection of how things were. The service to table was excellent, but the online ordering system was all over the place, and after quite a bit of messing about with the technology, our order was eventually taken using a pen and a pad! Despite these comments, we enjoyed our visit and will come again.Thank you.
