About The Boat at Erbistock

Dating back to the mid 17th century and probably much earlier this beautiful riverside inn has been welcoming and refreshing locals and passers-by for centuries. Our aim has been to preserve all its charm, nod nostalgically to the past and remember that proper pubs are always about people and atmosphere while gentling evolving into what a 21st-century country pub should offer in terms of food, drink and service, as well as facilities.

Having a warren of larger and smaller rooms means there is space for all walks of life and a variety of predilections from the dedicated drinkers and diners to walkers, bikers, anglers, shooters, canoeists and of course man’s best friend doggies….of the well-behaved variety, please. We also have a small private dining room that seats about 14 people comfortably that can also be used for meetings and even watching the odd game of rugby or other sports if the timings fit

We hope you’ll come and see us and have a good time.

Cuisine: British, Fish, Gastro Pub, Locally Sourced, Pub Food, Seafood, Sunday Lunch, Vegan Friendly, Vegetarian Friendly, Wine Bar

The surroundings and service are excellent. A beautiful building with lots of charm. The food is well presented but quite expensive for the amount you get.

We had a lovely time, the atmosphere (despite current restrictions) was lovely, the food and service was exceptional. Love the new outside space at the back. New fire feature and heaters over tables kept us nice and warm & it looks great!

Really enjoyable meal. Only spoilt by a screeching child on a nearby table which was just bad luck but nothing the restaurant could control. We look forward to our next visit. Highly recommend Sunday lunch.

A fantastic meal, great service and a beautiful setting! We just felt that the very reasonable price we spent on two main courses was spoilt by the £50 we had to spend on just two bottles of average wine to accompany the food was exessive! I understand the mark up on restaurant wine is huge but I feel you could offer more sub £20 wines!
