Having the log burner lit would have made the bar area more welcoming. Great food though..one of the best

I have been using your restaurant for a while now and over the last couple of month I’ve seen great improvements. I’m loving the chefs coming to the table. It shows they are very proud of what they do and it’s great for us as customers to know what we are eating and the effort that’s put in to cooking of it. Had a great meal on Sunday - my family had the beef and all loved it even said your roasties were as good if not better than mine!!! Very upsetting for a mum 😂. My fish was delicious!!! I’m so please for all the team and I sincerely wish you all every success as you all work very hard to create perfection. Well done to you all.

It is lovely to have a quality eating place such as this so close to home. We will definitely be going again. The staff and service was excellent and the food sublime. We had a lovely evening. Thank you. My only request would be could you please consider turning the music volume down a little......it was quite difficult to have a conversation because of the background noise and my slightly deaf husband!

Great al a carte menu but will not suit those looking for greater variety. Went for Sunday lunch which was for me beautiful but not at all traditional. However I loved it and will return.

Really enjoyable lunch and real value for money for ‘fine dinning’ menu - second visit this year for lunch, would go again - the duck dish could have done with a sauce for my personal taste though - but still enjoyable.

Exceptional Value I have eaten in a number of Michelin star restaurants and this more than comparable and it's on the doorstep. It's only a matter of time Liam before you and your staff get the plaudits your establishment deserve.

We had a fabulous meal at The Boat Inn for my husbands birthday on the 4th October 2018. We received a 5 star service from start to finish, the food was absolutely wonderful and there was a lovely ambience for an evening meal. We enjoyed it so much that we went to the bar area afterwards for a couple of drinks. I would highly recommend The Boat Inn - this is our new favourite restaurant and we shall definitely be returning.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at the Boat Inn for making our night such an enjoyable experience. The experience started with the first contact with the Boat Inn Sophie who’ve could not have been any more helpful, providing sample menu for our evenings meal to talking about our seating requirements. The staff on the evening were fantastic and the food was superb, Thank you once again for making our special family evening a truly memorable occasion.

Very good value Sunday lunch, service was extremely friendly, but amateurish. Food in parts was excellent. It is good news for our area to have such a good restaurant.

Some of the table staff need to be taught how to set out both glasses and plates. I do not appreciate staff chewing gum when serving in the restaurant.
