“ I almost blew Christmas day after finding my regular haunt fully booked, but it was a blessing in disguise. I booked The Boathouse, got a fabulous seat with great views of the river and found staff were alert and friendly. The menu on the day had an excellent selection (as had the bar) and was beautifully cooked and presented. My son praised the vegetarian option, with praise too for the traditional Turkey dish and I really enjoyed the fish which was fresh and tender on the day. The Boathouse comes Highly recommended. Well done everyone concerned.” ”

“ Stopped here for a very generous bowl of terrific smoked-fish chowder, just enough for dinner after a "full Scottish breakfast" for these light eaters. Even though we weren't seated at the window, we had a great view of the Forth Rail Bridge in the twilight and clouds. Pretty perfect evening meal ”


“ A really nice place to dine. We had lunch here which was very tasty, don't eat all the bread basket or you will have no space left for your food. The service was great, we had a lovely waiter serving us, and the atmosphere was quite relaxed. The views are splendid. We thought it was good value for money too. ”


“ Fantastic seafood at this restaurant. Great atmosphere, very friendly staff and a varied menu to suit everyone. We went as a family for a birthday treat and the food was delicious. ”
