Forester Road, Bath, BA2 6QE
The Bathwick Boatman riverside restaurant overlooks one of the prettiest reaches of the River Avon and is a ten-minute stroll away from Bath city centre, or a short boat ride from Pulteney Weir. Tucked away in residential Bathwick's historic boating station this delightful restaurant has all the charm of the rowing clubhouse it used to be, with a contemporary edge of clean colours and simple yet sophisticated decor.

Run by chef-owner Ben Hall and his wife Rosy, this friendly riverside haven offers simple, honest food, with robust earthy flavours. Everything is freshly prepared on the premises, right down to the pasta and chutney. As well as sumptuous cuts of meat there are superb vegetarian dishes such as mushroom loaf with home-smoked tomato, or Spanish bean stew with crusty garlic bread.

Dedicated to using fresh produce and maintaining good value, Ben has an ever changing specials board with interesting plates such as Cornish turbot with soft roe butter, beef ravioli in red wine gravy, or onion soufflé with truffle butter and Parmesan. Menu favourites include light lunches such as grilled goat's cheese with pumpkin and walnut chutney, or more hearty dishes such as cassoulet or root vegetable broth with herb dumplings.

With great British puds like bread and butter pudding with cream and apple, ginger and cinnamon crumble, with smaller portions for children, The Boatman is a relaxed and informal restaurant for any occasion.

You can pop by for a coffee on the tranquil terrace, a light lunch or a candle lit dinner. Boats are for hire from the boating station just below the restaurant and there is a private customer car park. The restaurant is also well set up for larger groups, so grab some friends and head to the water's edge for a peaceful afternoon and some great food.
