Yet again several things we ordered they didn't have (basic items). when tackled about this the man serving us (not someone I... More

I actually feel this review should be between 'Average' and 'Very Good', but opted for 'Very Good' as the location by the river is lovely. We had lunch here just before Christmas. It is typical 'pub grub', but was hot and the portions generous. The interior is a little tired and looking round, you just feel how great this place... More

Popped in for a quick drink. Lovely friendly staff, bustling atmosphere and very clean and tidy. Standard menu, burgers etc which was a bit disappointing but reasonably priced.

Visited with my grown up daughter and son in law on a rainy new years eve. We got there when the restuarant was opening. The menu is modern 'pub grub and is none the worst for that. The staff were helpful and attentive. It began to get busier after a short while but our food arrived within a reasonable time... More

We just popped in for a drink and some nachos after a bracing walk. It's a very big bar with big TV screens and a great outside area on the banks of the river Thames. Nothing special, but fits the bill adequately. Food offer is typical pub grub.

Food quality has deteriorated since my last visit and the change of ownership. Would not recommend this restaurant to anybody.

I visited The Boat House with my children last week and it was really great. The food was perfect, I had the spicy jerk chicken burger and it was delicious! The manager made us feel really welcome and even went above and beyond by getting some bread from the kitchen for my children to feed the ducks! Such a welcoming... More
