About The Boathouse Kilsyth
The Boathouse Pub Restaurant offers the very best food and wine in the picturesque setting of the Forth and Clyde canal marina. Scotland's world famous for its warmth of welcome and hospitality and you'll find it at the Boathouse Pub Restaurant.
The Boathouse Pub Restaurant aim to provide some of the very best of our country's rich store of fresh foods - there's no better reason for a visit.
Our goal is to create a great atmosphere for perfect lunches, light bites and dinners.
My teenage children and I visit the Boathouse often and are always more than happy with food, drink service and surroundings - whether eating indoors or outside by the canal, we are always delighted with each visit. We often cycle to the Boathouse for ice-cream, drinks, breakfast, lunch or dinner - all excellent! Thank you to the Boathouse staff who are always oat helpful and cheerful.
Amazing breakfast. Absolutely delicious. Lovely atmosphere. Gorgeous views. Will definitely be back.
Great service, food was lovely, drinks slightly dearer than expected but overall a great night! Will be back in the future.
Been to the boathouse many times. However on the last few visits I have been left disappointed. Food was as very bland, this was a view which was shared with all of my party.
We waited 30 minutes for a drink the service was bordering on lethargic. The food presentation was frankly a bit of a joke with the gammon steak being plumped on the top of a massive amount of chips and peas. Overall very disappointing. We have eaten here before and been delighted. After this visit not likely to return or recommend.
Most enjoyable afternoon tea with great service.
Enjoy the lunch meeting with friends
Lovely venue, food was great (no room for dessert!)
The choice of main was rather limited
Enjoyed the experience, nice setting, good food, good service. to be recommended.
Menu is getting very expensive.
We always have the fillet steak when we go to The Boathouse. As usual the steak was really nice and cooked to perfection! The only thing we were disappointed with was the blue cheese sauce. It tasted like a cheese sauce (must have been very little or no blue cheese in it!). We left this and shared the peppercorn sauce which we had also ordered :-)
Disappointed that you had run out of Lemon Sorbet - surely a staple dessert. Otherwise, a most enjoyable meal.
food good and value for money ok , arrived early for 830 meal , bar tables not cleared of glasses no one at desk when we arrived appeared 10 mins later 3 members of staff walked past us with no enquiry if they could help . not a good first impression
Could do with abit of a refurb. Table wasn’t cleaned properly, water glasses were dirty (did say to waitress) and the red table light was all grubby. Found abit plastic in my mussels that was from the bag they come in. Food was nice but must admit preferred the wheelhouse setting. Came here as wheelhouse closed but boathouse has the same menu x
Portions of main course were a bit much.
Scallop starters were pretty poor as scallops were tiny and although it's usually 3 per serving they are normally a reasonable size. Rest of meal was lovely and we did take advantage of the July25 promotion which was great. Staff efficient and friendly
Very good service and very pleasant and helpful staff
Good service great food
Food delicious as always. The lighter portion is the perfect size. Staff friendly. Will be back
Great food and atmosphere, only let down by a rather haphazard restaurant reception - no one to greet you and left waiting for 10 mins or so
Lovely member of staff serving us! So friendly and helpful, my son has several allergies and obviously this is a concern when we eat out but the member of staff who served us went out of her way to make sure things were suitable, which they were. Food was delicious. Happy customers
Lovely restaurant and great food, service a bit slow but would not stop me returning.
Fantastic food and service as always!
We have visited the restaurant on a Friday evening int the past but it was too busy/noisy for my mother and aunt. That wasn’t a problem on the Sunday evening we visited. The food and the service were absolutely excellent.
