What a little gem of a find. This pub is lovely. Great atmosphere and lovely location right on the river. Perfect for a sunny day. Staff were happy and beer was good. Would definitely go back again on our next visit here.
Rooms are of a very high quality. Consistent in theme and with its placement by the river. Very reasonably priced too and very happy with the cooked options at breakfast. Pub very pleasant and great outdoor areas by the river. Stayed for two nights, but could have done with three! Great job Boathouse team. Definitely be back.
We popped in here for a 'quick' drink, an hour and a half later we were still there with empty plates too! Such a lovely location right on the river, glass of wine in hand, sun out, we could have easily stayed all afternoon. Staff attentive and good food - I had the fish finger sandwich, delicious. Would love to visit again.
