The Boat House is a firm favourite with 5pm diners, as these recent reviews testify:
‘Great food. Lovely meal.’
‘Great loch side meal. Lovely food and great views.’
‘Absolutely brilliant. Went to The Boat House for my partner’s 50th birthday. The staff were first class and nothing was too much bother for them. The food was excellent – one of the guests said the fish and chips were the best she had tasted – can’t review better than that. Great place for a special event or just a lovely meal.’
Today’s Big Deal on a Loch Lomond cruise with lunch at The Boat House would be a great choice as a treat to mark a birthday or special occasion.
