The Boathouse is one of the beautiful places where everything comes together. A great way to spend a couple of hours eating and drinking before or after walking around the Boulters Lock area. 10/10 - Enjoy

A little piece of tranquility on a Sunday morning which I invited my wife to enjoy too! Three Canadian Geese going along the river Thames heads bobbing as their webbed feet struggle against the rivers flow, and three other geese pass them in the opposite direction. Most of the river traffic is going downstream on a cloudy morning as the pancakes arrive for my wife and my sourdough with cheese and marmite onions! Scrummy!
A few boats queue up to go through the lock and what is that? A head in the water and a brave swimmer is in a leisurely breaststroke downstream towards the bridge at Maidenhead where they can alight at the steps.
Another coffee? Why not the world is beginning to wake up more breakfasters arrive but it is not crowded the staff arrange the seating accordingly. We are outside but under an awning when it starts to rain slightly and it does not blow in over the glass retaining partition.
Maybe one more? Let us not overstay our visit, but the staff are in no rush to move us on as the first of the brunch crowd arrive, the level of chatter moves up a notch and is still hardly audible.
We must go there is another world out there beckoning us to go and it is such a shame.
When the post Covid lockdown rush is over we will be back to savour the evening delights before nights draw in and you need a jacket on this balcony.
See you next Sunday table!

Superb location. Outside table on the upper level, watching the bird life on the river. Lovely atmosphere, nearly full but not too noisy, background music just right. Very nice food, well presented. Menu a little limited. Staff extremely pleasant and efficient. Excellent evening.

This is a stunning location, especially on a sunny day, right on the banks of the River Thames. All the Covid regulations were still being observed which was reassuring. The food was lovely - although it did seem to come out quite quickly, we were not hurried at the end. To me the only downside is the parking. I brought my disabled mum and although there was one disabled space it was taken, so had to drop her off then park in the car park up the road and walk back which is not really ideal. But other than that excellent and I will be back.

Thank you AliH for this glowing review of us and our pub. We are so glad to hear we made you feel welcomed and safe with our covid measures. We are sorry about the parking situation, sadly this is something out of our hands and we wish we could provide parking galore! Hope this didn't affect your visit too drastically and you will visit us again soon.

Nice surroundings, on the river, however took 20 mins to be asked for drinks, and the menu was a tad limited.
Service was good after that. Food prices were expensive.

The boathouse at boulters lock is a good place to go. We are reasonably frequent visitors Yesterday was the first time we were disappointed with some of the food. The chicken was dry and need a sauce which wasn’t provided. The scallops starter tartare sauce was too strong for the scallops! This however is the first time we have ever had this poor food. Hopefully it won’t be repeated

Back here for dinner after nearly one year and we loved the new menu. All food was great value for money, as well as the wine. I knocked one star off the service rating because it started slow while the restaurant was still very busy, but then all food has been served with perfect timing.
The ambience was also perfect, since we were given an outdoor table upstairs. The view is a familiar one for us as we live a 10 min. walk downstream along the Thames and we often walk across that area, but the view from the restaurant itself is still unique and never tiring.
Highly recommended.

Lovely setting. Food was good but would have liked a bigger portion of beans with the full English and don’t want to have to pay extra to swap things like black pudding for a sausage. Avocado on toast could have done with a bit more flavour - garlic, lemon, salt etc. Service was mostly lovely, just felt on one occasion that the waitress felt put out by us asking to swap the black pudding 🤷🏻‍♀️
Overall nice experience and would go again as reasonably priced and great views over the river.
