I have to agree with the previous reviewer. The quality of food and service on offer here is simply not good enough at this price point.Had it been 10 pounds per head, it would have passable, but at over 100 pounds for 4, I was sorely disappointed. I won't be back either, especially when you can get MUCH better food and service at places like Cafe Bleu in the centre of Newark for the same price. There really is no comparison.

Below average food. Awful service.There were 2 of us eating. It took 15 minutes to get served, the starters arrived 30 minutes after we were seated and the mains were over an hour! The restaurant wasn't even particularly busy! Soup was watery, bread was stale.Duck spring rolls were bland.Pork burger was disappointing - tasted like it was bought from sainsburys!Chicken Kiev was ok although slightly dry!All in all we are 2 extremely disappointed diners.Needless to say, we will not be going back!

Fantastic place, my daughter and son-in-law had their wedding reception there and it was brilliant, superb food, and nothing was too much trouble for Nathan and his team, a good time was had by all and I would recommend it to anyone.There is plenty of car parking space, and the outlook over the river is great. There is a large outdoor verandah area with seating, and even rugs provided if you get a bit chilly. All in all, a great place to eat, and the staff were excellent.

The Farndon Boathouse opened around six months ago. It used to be the New Ferry Restaurant but has been completely refurbished and extended.

Great vibe and ambience. Super waterside views. Really friendly service.
