Disappointing Fullers clone pub with average microwaved food from a central kitchen somewhere. When I was there the bar staff were inefficient, but pleasant enough. Good beer though, but it should be at these prices.

Recently revamped in the corporate style that Fullers have come to favour in recent times and which is evident in some of their waterside pubs in London. It's Ok but lacks the earthiness of the nearby Crystal Palace, let alone the incomparable Rising Sun, both also on the Grand Union canal. That guest ales including the excellent Side Pocket for a Toad were on is a plus point and the food looked good but it's one for the Hackett shirts and sunglasses perched on heads brigade.

A popular pub that has just been revamped. A Fullers house with a good selection of beers and wines and food that looks okay, but I've never eaten there. They have spent a fair amount on revamping the interior and extending the canal side terrace and have removed the sky-sports screens after Fullers' decision to dump Sky altogether. It's quite nice inside, but they've made the bar smaller. I was warned before I went that service is a problem and sure enough, the now smaller bar was lined with disgruntled customers. The bar staff were friendly, young and polite, but had no awareness of who was waiting.
I'm not sure they've actually improved the pub. For some reason, I never really liked the pub, but enjoyed meeting up with friends there to watch an important game. So I have no real reason to go there now. They also have young mums with children and buggies in the bar, which puts me off too. I hope they sort the service etc out and are successful. It's not a bad pub, just not for me.

Nice pub. Superb service. I walked from hemel to here and was made to feel like an all conquering hero. This is an excellent pub and we should cherish it.

For some reason �The Boat� has it�s critics, but I rate it one of my favourite pubs. The food is 7/10 although the menu can be a bit limited. The beer range is typical of a Fullers pub and the staff are terrific if not slightly overworked at times. It can get very busy and it is common for people to reserve a table then fail to show.
Over summer they have the occasional Sunday BBQ which is well worth a try.

A note should be made about the sport they show. Berkhamsted has a large community of people who support Rugby and The Boat will give Rugby preference over Football on some occasions.
