Very disappointed with the chips. They used to be very good but now are different, much lower quality and came very cold. Ordered 2 chicken parmis and both had cold chips. Chicken was okey. The chips they used to have before were much better.
It seems like the food quality is lower than before but the prices are the same.

Lovely view and ambiance at the Boathouse. The cocktails were good value and the dinner very tasty and well presented.I had the barramundi and really enjoyed it. Only down side was the contactless ordering using the QR code. I get it in Covid times but found it very annoying.
Great night out

Very disappointed. 4 of us arrived on New Years Eve for dinner at 7.30. We ordered a drink and entree then thought we would order our mains.It was 8.30 . We had to order online, as contactless. It wouldn’t work and the nice girl looking after us said it was because the kitchen was closed, I forgot to tell you! We had to go home and eat!

We chose The Boat Shed for my birthday lunch and I had booked an outside table but the day turned out very warm and the staff kindly switched us to an inside table that still had a nice outlook. Service was excellent all the way through, friendly staff, food and drinks produced in very good time. I had the TBS Fish and Chips and found the fish to be the best battered fish I'd ever had, beautifully light crispy batter. The servings for both of us were generous and good value for money and the cocktails delicious. Staff were attentive and courteous. I'd recommend The Boat Shed and will be going back.

The food was average for the price you pay, seemed like a bit of an issue to ask for table service and not use the app, waiters were lovely but seemed a bit unorganised. Waited an hour for food when it was a very quiet night
Probably won’t be back

We had an enjoyable meal, the service was excellent and the meal itself was nice, however I had hoped that our booking was for the more formal restaurant but we were out near the bar. The noise level was so high that we had to raise our voices to be heard and when cocktails were being prepared behind the bar we just didnt talk until it was finished.

I will go back as it is a lovely area and food and service was great, but will be sure to ask where the table is situated when booking.

Couldn’t believe that when I ordered I said no salad as I have a tomato allergy, when I got my steak dinner there was salad on my plate and the waitress could only say just don’t eat it, even after telling her that I have an allergy for the second time.
Not to mention I ordered my steak medium/well and it came out under cooked on one half and over cooked on the other half.
