    The food was amazing only down side no overnight parking for vans like quite a few pubs and restaurants in the area so very sad we could not sample the alcohol menu as we had to drive. Service amazing super fast and great portions sizes. View is lovely too

    We nearly did not go to the Boathouse for dinner, as we were put off by some of the negative reviews we had seen. That would have been a shame. The service from the time we walked through the door was friendly and very efficient. We had a table in the restaurant upstairs with views over the marina. Our pre-dinner drinks came quickly, a prosecco for my wife and a real ale for me. Our order was taken quickly. I ordered the lamb, which if cooked properly would take a little time, my wife ordered the prawn curry. The food came in good time, and was excellent. My lamb was tender and full of flavour, and nicely presented. My wife was very pleased with her food, which had plenty of prawns. I had a large glass of Malbec to go with mine, which was good. We shared a sticky toffee pudding, which was excellent and a decent portion. Overall we had a very good meal and excellent service. The restaurant was fairly busy, with a lot more people in the bar downstairs drinking and some eating on a Friday night.

    Unable to give a fair review of the food etc as we didn't stay. We booked the restaurant at the time of booking the accommodation (months in advance) only to find on our arrival to the boathouse they had seated us in the bar area. This was highly inappropriate as I was overdressed thinking we were eating in a nice restaurant. Ruined our evening as it was a birthday weekend celebration for my husbands birthday. We left, went back to the accommodation to get changed and had to go to Windermere to find somewhere else to eat

    We found the Boat house on opentable by chance. On arrival we needed a code to get into the car park. We were greeted by a member of staff at the bar and then seated. The food that we both ordered was absolutely amazing and great value. We will definitely go again if in the area.

    The roast dinners were excellent - would be great to have a veggie roast option rather than the cheese and onion pie with roast dinner accompaniments but it was delicious! The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the views over the marina are lovely. Would definitely recommend and return!

    We visited the Boathouse on Bank Holiday Sunday, what a gorgeous restaurant in a beautiful setting on the marina, especially when the sun is shining! The place was super busy, service was always delivered with a smile and the food was fantastic. The lamb MELTS in your mouth! We can’t wait to return on our next trip to the lakes!

    I booked this restaurant on a weekend away with friends as a birthday meal for my partner and I am very disappointed with the experience and left so upset that my partners birthday evening was such a negative and frustrating experience. What I had hoped would be a lovely birthday meal ended up being the most frustrating night. We waited 1 and 1/2 hours for food after having our order taken (it took over half an hour for the order to even be taken anyway) and when the starter came they missed one of the dishes so this was a further 20 minutes wait for the missing starter. We just seemed to be ignored and kept having to go up to the bar to ask for drinks, ask where our food was etc. The food was ok but definitely will not return. Staff were polite when approached but to say there were only 4/5 tables of people downstairs in the bar area it was extremely slow. Our plates were cleared away in a hurry at the end of our meal and we were just told to leave when we were ready and pay at the bar on the way out!! Honestly shocking after waiting all that time for our food to be then rushed out at the end.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We're sincerely sorry to hear that your experience did not meet your expectations and that on this occasion the service fell short, I can assure you that this is not our usual standard of service. I will ensure that we feed this back to staff to ensure this does not happen again.

    Had booked in advance - arrived early to have drink at the bar and immediately realised how unorganised the place was. Staff were running around unsure who had been seen to, witnessed two tables leave as they hadn’t been served. Eventually got seated and had to wait 25 mins for order to be taken and accepted for then be told 10 minutes later to change choice as they’d ran out. Didn’t receive our side dishes at all. Food was okay but overall experience not worth the price.

    Booked months in advance, took 30 minutes to seat us, 1.5 hours before we ate. Such a shame as this place could be amazing. Staff were very stressed and had no idea what they were doing. Several people got up and walked out. We stayed as it was bank holiday Sunday and feared we wouldn’t find anywhere else. Food did not come as we ordered but we were starving. Cost over £150 to feed 2 adults and 2 children, food was very basic so was the menu. Avoid this place.

    Waited for 15 minutes to be seated, we had pre-booked, they had to move people who hadn’t booked. I asked if it was table service, took 45 minutes to come to take order. Ordered drinks 3 times before we got any. When food finally come it was dried out, definitely wasn’t worth £19. Very disappointed won’t be coming again .

    Thank you for your review. It's unusual for us to receive feedback that we are a small dining area, on the contrary the restaurant seats upto 140 covers at one time. We're sorry to hear that you found our drink prices to be higher than expected. We understand that value for money is important to our guests, and we constantly strive to offer competitive pricing. We regularly benchmark our prices against other establishments in the area to ensure that we remain competitive without compromising on the quality of our offerings. We hope to see you again soon at The Boathouse.

    Thank you for taking the time to review. We were disheartened to read your comments regarding the flavor of our food, as delivering delicious and satisfying dishes is something we take great pride in. It's unusual for us to receive feedback about blandness, as we consistently strive to offer a diverse menu bursting with flavors to tantalize our guests' taste buds. We hope that you'll consider giving us another chance.

    Bit of a miserable waiter. Didn’t crack a smile the whole time we were there. Had to go and get pencils and colouring paper for my daughters as wasn’t offered. Dogs are ok but they were everywhere. Waiter stroking dogs and serving us food was unhygienic. We have our own dogs but we wouldn’t expect to see so many at night in a restaurant. Couldn’t fault the food but the service wasn’t great.

    Hi Mark, thanks for your review. I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed the food, its a shame that despite your satisfaction with our food, you felt compelled to leave a 1-star review. We pride ourselves on being a dog friendly restaurant, we understand that its not for everyone but the majority of our customers are happy that they don't have to leave their fury friends behind. We do of course take the health and hygiene of our guests very seriously, staff are asked to wash their hands after stroking dogs and we continually reinforce this policy with our staff to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness throughout our premises.

    Great food and good portions, there is a good choice on the menu and it is excellent value for the quality of the dishes. The recent refurb has improved on what was already a great venue in a fantastic location. Only 1 tiny gripe is that I miss the dim mood lighting that used to give the place a cosy ambience, the new bright lighting is great for reading the menu but a bit clinical

    Falafel burger was too thick, dense and claggy which we mentioned to the waitress as we left a lot of it...service was not great...not shown to table waitress just waved at a couple of tables...she forgot to bring our drinks, took away a glass which still has wine in it which luckily I managed to retrieve. Staff were chatting to locals at the bar rather than serve tables...people were coming in queuing and ignored...one couple left though I doubt the waitress even noticed. Definitely won't go again.

    Thank you for your review. We apologize that the burger did not meet your expectations in terms of texture and taste. Your feedback will be shared with our kitchen team. It's important to acknowledge that taste preferences can vary greatly among individuals, and what one person may find delightful, another may not. We recognize that food is a subjective experience, and while we aim to appeal to a wide range of tastes, we understand that we may not always succeed in pleasing everyone. We apologize for the oversight with your drinks and for any inconvenience caused by the delay. Rest assured, we will address this matter with our staff to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.

    A wonderful birthday dinner here. The food was absolutely delicious. I had muscles followed by a lovely salmon main. My hubby had the butternut squash soup and a burger. It was very quiet however, we did go for an early dinner at 4.30. The service was good and the staff were very friendly. Especially the lovely Maddie. We will definitely be back. Thank you

    Came for lunch on a Saturday in February, sun was shining and the view beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and following it up with a trip to Grasmere made for a perfect day out.

    Would be helpful to know how to get in to the car park, spent 15 minutes going backwards and forwards for different codes for the barrier. Food and service very good
