user reviews of the Boat Inn, Whittlesey

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A basic pub but none the worse for that. Usually the full range of Elgoods beers including the lovely Black Dog mild, as well as interesting ciders and malts. The Boat does accommodation and has had a loyal following of folk who always stay here when in the Peterborough area. The local mythology has it that there were once so many pubs in Whittlesey that they ran out of names to call them, resorting to letters - hence the Letter A (which became an art shop/gallery) and the Letter B which survives near St Andrew's church up from the Boat. Many pubs have now closed, but there is no doubt that of those that survive in the home town of the Straw Bear festival, the Boat is definitely the best.

Not the most promising impression from outside, but a friendly welcome, and six different ciders from Westons, as well as a range of real ales, make this one to come back to.

A good pub with a nice selection of ales and a huge selection of malt whiskies.

Great pub, Phil the landlord keeps beer excellently. There are occasional live music events, which are always great nights.
