Excellent restaurant with great food and innovation in the kitchen. Service needs to be polished up a little, but that will come with a little more experience.

Food and service was, as like every time I've been, excellent. Whether a birthday, anniversary or with a visitor from Australia, it's my number one choice for dining.

Having been for a lunch before on a Friday we booked to bring our friends from Belgium. The lunch menu had just changed and was as good as previously. It was busy and we were really well looked after as per the last time. The food was outstanding and the whole experience was brilliant!

It must be 10 years since visiting the Boat Inn and my how it has changed. Not saying the old place wasn't good but the current restaurant is Superb. I attended on a Sunday where there was enough choice ontop of the roasts available. I can say without any failure that it was the tastiest food I've eaten in a long time and the whole service wrap makes you feel special. I can confirm it will not take 10 year to return....

Excellent tasting menu with wine flights, complimented with passionate service! Booked for 7.30pm on a Saturday and which we'd reserved a bit later as restaurant was little quiet earlier on - atmosphere improved as it filled up.

Fantastic ambience, staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. The food was outstanding especially the beef wellington! The only criticism we had was that we were served a drink of water quite quickly after being seated but it was another half an hour before we were asked what we would like to eat or drink and had a drink our hands. We will most definitely be back :) and have recommended it to our friends and family and some have already booked, keep up the good work!

A lovely lunch with attentive service. Portions weren’t huge but just right to feel satisfied but not uncomfortable when treating yourself to 3 courses at lunchtime.

We had the most amazing night. All the staff were lovely, we had the chefs table and 7 course taster menu, the food was wonderful, so nice to have the chef at the table telling us what we were eating and how it was cooked. Thankyou again for making our Silver Wedding anniversary so memorable.

Exceptional dining experience as always. We came in as a group of 4 for a Sunday Homework session and really enjoyed our time with you. The food was perfect and the atmosphere a careful balance of luxurious yet relaxed. Can't wait to come back.

The food was superb, service was relaxed and we were made to feel really welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Cocktails were spot on, and a lovely touch at the end of meal was being presented with a treat to acknowledge the birthday we were celebrating. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our visit. The food was extremely good, and we enjoyed watching the calm and seemingly happy chefs preparing the food, and having their roles explained to us. We were impressed by the friendliness of the staff and their genuine willingness to stop and chat. We have already recommended your restaurant!
