Congratulations on the excellence of the food. You are to me the new third restaurant in the gastronomic desert that is Staffordshire. I hope to see you in the Good Food Guide in due course. My only real criticism, was that the attention to my wife and I at the beginning of our visit was not 'up to scratch', presumably from the pressure you were under from the numbers of persons that were dining. The behaviour of a few customers towards yourselves was somewhat ignorant. Dr David Nokes

Pig’s head snack was unusual, unexpected and fantastic. Service was attentive and friendly - Michaela (our server) was lovely

Great evening, good food, wine selection and service. Chef cooked everything well. Nice touches like taster on glass dish with information on cards. Good selection of foods on the set menu or Al a carte choice. Relaxing, comfortable atmsphere. The time between courses was perfect.

We had an exceptional meal. I haven’t been to The Boat for a couple of years although my wife and her mother have, but we all thought the lunch was excellent and a higher standard. Not just the food but the service, maitre d and waiting staff were all ‘on their game’. We look forward to returning soon.

Lovely modern, cool decor, delicious food and very helpful staff who know their product. I loved the fact that there is no service charge, and that water is free - as it should be - as was the roll we were served plus the extra one we requested! Such a refreshing change from being charged for every minor request. Other restaurants could learn from this level of service. My dining party enjoyed the Sunday lunch and cannot wait to try the midweek a la carte selection

Absolutely brilliant celebratory meal. We were treated impeccably from the second we walked through the door and all our allergy requests were dealt with sensitively and efficiently. We can’t wait to come back.

Excellent food, wine and service, thank you. We were joined by our closest and life long friends who were overwhelmed by the evening and they both said that the choice of food was excellent and that it was superb.

Very helpful young female waitress and older male helper - sorry forget the names. Best service at a restaurant for ages and the food - ah to die for, see you again soon! Very quick service especially considering it was a Friday evening when we dined.

Food was very good. The drinks selection was also excellent. Great atmosphere. Waitress brought the wrong wine, in fairness we didn’t notice at the time but perhaps needs a better knowledge of the menu.

Absolutely fantastic food. A little more expensive than we usually pay but it's the difference between usual food out and a delight on the palate. Well worth the small additional cost. We will be bringing many people here with us to experience how delicious food can be.
