I visited the Boat Inn with 5 other friends in April 2011 after doing an all day walk in the Black Mountains. We were staying overnight at a hotel @ 2 miles up the road from the Boat but when we checked in we found that the kitchen was closed and no food was available. We decided to cram into one vehicle and drive to the Boat for dinner and a few drinks and our plan was to leave the car at the pub and walk back to our hotel at the end of the night.We all enjoyed excellent food at a reasonable price along with good beer and a lively and friendly atmosphere. At the end of the night when we were about to leave, the landlady and the bar maid were concerned that we were planning to walk along an unlit busy road. They insisted on driving us the 2 miles back to our hotel. Absolutely unbelievable service from incredibly friendly staff. I would recommend this pub to anyone...... without it we would have had a miserable, dry and hungry night!!
