We joined you for the sunday homework menu, it was all amazing, service was great, food was very tasty with an interesting combination of flavours, all beautifully presented the restaurant was quiet so the atmosphere was lacking a little, but overall a very pleasant experience and we will definately return.

A superb family Sunday lunch. Couldn’t not have asked for more. The taster menu is well worth a try when you don’t have the kids in tow 😉

The new taster menu has, in my opinion, some issues. Overall, there are some interesting combinations but the size of each course is so small that we left the table hungry. The pasta and squash course needs attention. It is served barely lukewarm. This wasn’t pleasant. The venison was delicious but the piece of meet was barely an inch square. I have no problem with paying for good food. I would cheerfully pay £100 for a similar tasting menu if the portions were twice as big. Please accept this as honest feedback, not criticism. I remain a big fan of the Boat and would happily meet with the chef to discuss my views.

We came for Xmas day and had the tasting menu. Absolute superb! Only thing that could have been included in cost was coffee at the end of the meal. A very enjoyable day. Will definitely visit again.

The food was outstanding as with the atmosphere and how the whole night went. The only slight critique I can give is that it took a while for some drinks to come out. We will definitely be coming back again.
