We ate here on one evening, during our recent long weekend in one of the lodges. We ate here as it appeared clean and the menu had a good variety to suit everyone. On site, there was also only the one restaurant, but still we were mindful of the good reviews and decided to give this place a try. Unfortunately, we found the food in the main to be really average. We had pizzas and one of our friends had the green Thai curry, which looked quite unappetising, with very large chunks of chicken and a runny sauce; and most of that particular dish went uneaten. The staff were really friendly and efficient. Good range of drinks, the male member of staff asked if we trusted him to choose us a gin; we did and he made an excellent choice based on what we told him we enjoyed. Price at the Boat Inn was what you would expect in this type of location.

There was a varied menu although the specials were the same four four days. The place was clean the food edible and to their credit the staff were excellent. We dined here for three nights.
Good value and friendly service

Surprised at the interior of the place, very nice and airy. We arrived earlier than booked having cycled around the lake, but this was no problem. Food was a little slow in coming but was freshly cooked and plentiful. Good value, filling and the service was friendly and helpful.
