Staff were all friendly and most efficient, coping well during Covid restricted times with restaurant standard food served in the garden on the banks of the Avon - pure joy

I love this place and have done ever since it opened. But I love it even more now because they are one of the few places that have understood that during lockdown (and opening up) that every single pub or restaurant has their own set up rules - it means that clients are hesitant and unsure. So barking orders at them, creating complicated one way systems and generally treating people like children creates a very unpleasant atmosphere. I have stopped going to some places because of this - many have forgotten that despite the pandemic we are actually customers. Anyway, there's none of this at the Boat House. They've created a friendly laid back atmosphere without any stressy agro whilst gently adhering to the latest insane govt rules. Well done for understanding this. You'll continue to be my fav place to go in Stratford!

1st time at the boathouse. Really lovely staff, wine and setting. Couldn’t ask for more. Head and shoulders above a couple of other local hostelries we tried over the last couple of weeks. Staff were so kind as they juggled bookings to allow us to stay beyond our slot. We’ll be back!
