Used to use this pub for the regular jazz on Thursday evenings-a wonderful B&B next to the car park over the bridge was very useful. Went back after a 10 year gap to see how it's changed,and we're so glad that it hasn't! Great atmosphere with regulars, dogs and walkers. You won't find a better range of real ales, stacked up at the rear of the bar. Also, a wide selection of fruit wines. The food is wholesome and filling.It seems to feast the eyes before the belly, but don't look for chips on the menu.You wont need them anyway.Log fires always set off a pub, and a good pub this is-though not a restaurant.I've still got the only gripe I ever had with the Boat, and thats that at some time I've got to go home.I love it there.

Happened upon this pub by chance and so glad we did. The food was great i had chilli and my wife had the baked brie. Excellent selection of ales and the service was really welcoming. The only slight issue was the temperature, it was a cold day the the log burners weren't coping very well. Definitely worth visiting if you are nearby.

Love going to The Boat at any time of year, went the other night after work for a quick scoop. Always a good mix of people and dogs!
If you like your real ale and ciders then you have to visit, nice warm fire on wet damp evenings soon warms you up!

Lovely little pub in pretty surroundings. Did wait quite a long time for food to arrive but it was lovely when it did arrive and it didn't really matter as we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the lovely log fire. Not everything on the menu available but it was a busy weekend over the Christmas period. There is outside seating next to the river for when the weather allows and well behaved dogs are allowed inside. Prices are very reasonable and will definitely be visiting again.
