Recently back in the hands of the owners (has been tenanted for some years) this pub is back to a really friendly local serving good, well presented honest food. Helpful friendly staff, welcoming landlords, great wood burning stove & fab views of the river wye. Well worth a visit and forget the last few years!! Good value food and wide range of flavours & prices to choose from, you will not leave hungry! (read more)

Don't let the initial appearance put you off. The rear of the pub, dining room and gardens all look out on the peaceful River Wye with occaisional entertainment courtesy of the RAF. There is a proper bar with pool/darts and a range of ales and ciders if you fancy and a separate dining romm with bar. I went with 3 others and the food was clearly individually prepared from the daily lunchtime menu and specials board. Fresh fish, vegetarian options and the omnipresent Liver and Onions. Staff...

What a surprise the Boat Inn at Whitney was! Unassuming from outside but the location on the banks of the River Wye is superb. The panoramic windows across the back of the restaurant gave a fantastic view of the river and surrounding countryside including the Brecon Beacons. An excellent mooring site for canoeists and small boats. For those who enjoy wildlife there is a pair of breeding otters nearby. The lunch menu was varied and inventive. A range of dishes for vegetarians are... (read more)

We had been to The Boat Inn a few years back & checked various reviews, which seemed a mixed bag, but decided to give it a trial. We went for the Sunday carvery & what we got was the worst pub meal in living memory. The plates were cold, & the vegetables were even colder. They took the plates away to microwave, just to try & get a little warmth in the food. The beef turned out to be overcooked, tough & indigestible. Much of this we had to leave on the plate & we decided to pass on the... (read more)

The Boat Inn is typical of a pub not needing to try as the camp site close by provides a captive audience of customers.
Meal was average, starter came with main course! Asked for a rare steak and came completely over cooked.
Would avoid to stop disappointment (read more)

After having not visited the Boat Inn for many years, I decided to book an evening table for a get together with a few close freinds.
The beautiful river setting has remained unchanged and the restaurant ambience was very relaxing and warming. The menu had a degree of diversification which differed it from the norm of food served in pub restaruants. The meals were to a high standard of quality and presentation, and the staff were informative and polite.
I congratulate the new owner on... (read more)

Having heard of Boat Inn, Whitney-On-Wye pub from friends who were canoeing down the wye, we decided to take a drive out to the marches, touring black and white villages and ending up for dinner at The Boat Inn. It was a welcome site after quite a wet day.The resturaunt sits in an idyllic position right on the riverbank with large glass windows lots of wildlife activity. We ordered the fresh cod and homemade chips and steak and ale pie with veg,we eat out quite often and can say the food... (read more)

We stayed at the Boat Inn in rooms above the pub as part of a canoe trip. The evening meal was good but a bit pricey. B+B hugely expensive at £60 for a double room and £50 for a single room. Rooms had not been vacummed for some time as remains of the dead spider will testify, also dirty towels and stained bed linen, door lock not working and not fixed, shower to hot or too cold, really loud duke box playing until 2am, pub not quiet until 4am. Piles of junk on the landing of the B+B rooms,... (read more)
