Great food, lovely setting, excellent service and a superb 'old fashioned' to finish off the evening. A perfect way to celebrate a special occasion, thank you to all of the staff and the chef at the Boat Inn.

We enjoyed our visit and cant really say anything negative , however the experience didnt wow us as we expected fine dining wow feeling. We can only compare to other restaurants we have visited such as Opheem and Simpsons and have scored in comparison and contrast.

Absolutely amazing food, staff took the time to explain things and help us decide on the lovely bottle of red we had. Nothing was to much trouble and the home made bread was delicious

Brought my friend to the Boat for lunch on Friday as a birthday treat, after many recommendations. We were not disappointed. The ambience was very good, staff very pleasant and helpful and the food was delightful. The amuse bouche, breads and handmade chocolates were also lovely. We’re looking forward to our return visit already. Thank you!

it is the third time we have eaten at the Boat, the food was stunning, we couldn't praise the chefs more. Head of Service is always exceptionally welcoming and one of the chefs addressed the table and explained ethos of food, that was another well considered gesture. Well done again we will definitely be back.

I felt like I was a judge on master chief, Chief brought food to table and explained each course very good value, staff are very welcoming and chatty. Just found my new favourite restaurant.

Lovely meal, service was amazing, only feedback is there could be a better selection of cocktails, food was excellent again feedback on the main ox cheek is that it could of had a rich sauce to compliment as needed to be broken up and cut through the meat. Can’t wait to return again soon.

Great meal. Service was also great but not absolutely exemplary. I only raise this as I get the impression you're striving for absolute perfection, otherwise I wouldn't. This service comparison is vs Sat Bains, Adams, Simpsons etc.

We love this restaurant!! This was our 3rd visit since we moved to the area in May last year and we will be back again! The food is absolutely incredible and definitely Michelin star standard. It's rare that I find a tasting menu where I LOVE every single course but this one blows me away every time. The team are so welcoming and friendly and it's extremely good value for money. The wait between courses was my only gripe, we were twiddling our thumbs a bit towards the end, but it certainly shouldn't put anyone off - it's worth the wait!
