Attractive location by the Thames with plenty of outside seating areas. Pricey food - £11.50 for burger and very small bowl of chips. Beer selection reasonable. Tried the Sambrook Junction and the keg Meantime Pale Ale. Condition was nothing special. Okay - nothing more. 5/10.

Visited here after the Kingston Beer Festival on Saturday. The beer festival had a poor selection remaining after what must have been a busy Friday. With 6 ales on, the Boaters offered a suitable alternative. Sambrooks Junction, Tring Tea Kettle Stout, Dark Star Sunburst, Twickenham Smiler's Ale, Adnams May Day & The Boaters Inn Particular were the ales on offer. My only complaint would be that my half of stout was not poured fresh. It was retrieved from the drip tray. Nice location by the river.

A lot of positive things can be said about Boaters. Sadly since the Greene King takeover the range of ales has become very limited so there is not the draw there once was to enjoy a really interesting as well as great beer by the river. High prices for great beer is one thing but for bog standard stuff? Methinks not.

Have visited this pub many times over the past 10 years, and found the location to be perfect, what ever the weather. The beer is good with a good selection and often changed. The food has nearly always been good and sensibly priced but yesterday visited with a friend for lunch and had a Boaters Burger. The food was very good indeed but the price was very high for such a meal, £13.95. The menu is not as currently on their website. The beer at £4 a pint of Adnams was also steep. I appreciate the location and view etc, but. The service was fine and waiting time was good too, maybe you get what you pay for.

So, good beer, good food, good service, good location, high prices.

First visit and very impressed with the range of ales from Golden to Stout. Lovely spot by the river. Food a bit on the pricey side.
