The Boaters Inn: what do users think?
Elaine Calka: I had a very nice and cold beer from this place.The service wasn't good as the 2 guys inside the bar were too busy talking to a costumer..I had to wait till they finished the conversation to order and pay for my drink.Service: 3/5|Atmosphere: 5/5 …More
Timo Ewalds: The salad was mediocre... Decent dressing, but little substance.
Piers Bravery: Food: 3/5|Service: 3/5|Atmosphere: 5/5More
Eren ozcelik: Barely got acknowledged at the entrance in a very quiet restaurant to be then told sit any where you like, to then be approached by a waitress who put the menus in front of us with no welcome, safe to say didn’t eat there. Poor serviceFood: 1/5|Service: 1/5|Atmosphere: 1/5 …More

Carlton Johnson: I've been to the Boaters Inn on a few occasions in the last few months. What keeps us coming back is that it's dog friendly, you're by the river, it's got a good atmosphere and the other customers are always friendly. However, the food is very average and the customer service, while mostly pleasant, isn't great. It often feels like staff are trying to avoid eye contact when you are trying to get their attention.On our recent visit we were recommended a meal by a staff member, which my wife tried and had to send back because she didn't like the crab burger, which was the main part recommended and the main part of the meal. We were still charged for the meal, which didn't feel great, as we hadn't eaten it. However, we appreciate their policy is if it's sent back due to personal preference they charge you but they'll give you the replacement meal free (my wife had soup as a replacement).What wasn't great is that they didn't tell us this beforehand. The soup was significantly less in cost. If we had known their policy we could have chosen a more comparably priced meal. They also took the whole meal away, including fries, which I would have really enjoyed eating, but wasn't given the option and wasn't told we would be charged for them regardless. If we had known that we would have kept the fries we were being charged for.The staff member was quite defensive when approached above it and didn't seem to understand that we should have been given the option to keep any part of the meal we did like, seeing as they were going to charge us for it anyway. And that it would have been good to have been told their policy prior to choosing a replacement meal. All in all, it wasn't a great experience.Later that day we stopped by Bills restaurant in Kingston which is a short 11 min walk away and the customer service and attentiveness of staff there was so, so much better. And we’ll be eating their much more often than we do at Boaters Inn, in the future.If the customers service and food was better at Boaters Inn, I wouldn't hesitate to give it a 5 star rating as the location, customers, and dog friendly atmosphere is great. It's a shame about the rest. I'll have to think twice about bringing friends and family here again in the future.

Amy Todd: Love this place. Really friendly staff, good food, great outdoor space.
Alasdair Duncan: Used to be our favourite spot but the food has been massively disappointing the last couple of times we've been.For last night's meal, the Vegetarian options for the main wrap few and far between that we went with all starters and sides. Would be nice to see a burger or nut roast back on the menu.Soup was great, as were the arancini and the skinny fries.Buffalo mozzarella with a miso dressing for ten quid turned out to be half an old, dried out mozzarella with a nasty paste and some very stale crackers.Asparagus stocks in the kitchen had clearly run low so we got 4 on a plate with a load of added frozen peas, spinach and lettuce.Truffle Mac and cheese was surprisingly tasteless, and the cheese sauce was very thin.Location is perfect, and the atmosphere only ruined by the lady next to us with her incessantly barking dog in a pram. Service was good this time but very slow the time before about 6 months back.Not sure we'll be going back without some change, especially with the prices as high as they are.Vegetarian options: Very limited options for main courses for the vegetarians and vegans.
Maggie Watson-Kipping: Great place to eat right beside the river.Food: 5/5|Service: 5/5|Atmosphere: 5/5 …More
Adam Greaves: Great views onto the river; wonderful menu choices; the food we chose was very tasty; the service was good, and friendly. We'll definitely be going back even though we don't live nearby.Parking: Free street parking on Sunday
Annelise Davies: First time here on Sunday.Great atmosphere, helpful friendly staffService with a smile.We had the Sunday beef roast and everything was delicious, Nicely roasted vegetables beef was good quality and gravy was superb.Will definitely be back as a regular for Sunday lunches.
Guy Falkingham: Great pub by the river with outside bar and good choice of food, including both pub/restaurant menu and street food/BBQ/paella.Highly recommended!
Jasmine Benham: Good pub with lovely surroundings.
Alby Yington: Excellent food and atmosphere in this pub in Canbury Gardens, by the river.
Bret Johnson: Nice location, dog friendly, wasn't waiting long for drinks. Lost a star only because I bumped my head on the side door frame 😂 mind your head!
VINCENT LEADER: Excellent Riverside pub.I had the fish pie with a side order of sweet potato fries and it was delicious.The staff are really friendly and helpful.I will definitely be going again.If you go midweek about lunchtime, it is nice and quiet with a very chilled atmosphere, watching the boats float by.The enclosed garden is excellent.10/10
Xander W: We feel we got lucky and sat outside - through the bar - right by the river!
Nozukcha M: Delicious food in beautiful location.
Laura Bartlett-Napper: Great find, would recommend for food & drink!

The Albert: what do users think?

Al: Have been coming here for years. A pub that is quintessential to Kingston. Service is always quick and friendly. Great array of drinks. Lovely clientel and amazing outdoor area. Came for dinner on Thursday and enjoyed the burrata on toast (which although is a small plate is a really great portion size for one person). Would highly recommend.

Don Rae Academy: I used to eat here often but not anymore! The portions are very small and Uber priced and the food has definitely gone down hill. I came to have a Sunday lunch and the waiter spilled horseradish all over me carelessly. By the time I cleaned up the mess my food was cold and my family had to wait again for the food to arrive after waiting for 40 minutes in the first place! The beef was not tasty and each plate received three potatoes each! The gravy was watery and the beef was not good quality at all! The other waiter didn’t have good hygiene either. The place was very quiet for a Sunday lunch time too which is quite telling.There are much better places to eat. Do not eat here. The service and food is not worth the money you pay for. On a positive the manager did give us a discount for the food and apologised for the terrible food and mentioned that there is no head chef at the moment and that hopefully they will have one soon.I hope they do improve because it is such a shame to witness such a big demise.
Alejandra Glez: I could definitely do with some cleaning. Not for me, thanks.
Lizzie Peterson: Lovely meal out with a friend, Ava was really lovely to us, thank you so much 😊
Louis Szreider: Really great venue! I arranged to run a company charity pub quiz at the Albert and both Ken and Paul were a delight to deal with to manage an event with approx 28 people. The BBQ menu went down a treat with everyone, burgers were perfectly cooked and fries were well seasoned. Paul took it upon himself to look after our group during the event by bringing drinks over and catering to our needs for the quiz event. We will certainly be back to the Albert and it’s great team!
David Hamilton: Really cool place! My lady and I stayed at the Warren House just down the road and had some time to kill so we popped in. The atmosphere was great and we thoroughly enjoyed passing the time here with a few pints and some chips. We had dinner plans elsewhere but strongly considered staying put and eating here. In hindsight, definitely wish we'd done so.
Matt Williams: I Love going to the Albert, great Sunday roasts, lovely drink selection and dog friendly which is always a big plus. Also nice beer garden for those sunny days. Great for heading to after a walk to Richmond Park. Service last time was extremely friendly too, looking forward to the next trip already
Jemma: An absolute shambles of a pub. Ordered two burgers and fish and chips, in total it took 45 minutes for the food to arrive when there was 2 people other than us in the pub - both burgers arrived completely raw, we told management about this and we were assured two new ones would come out.Another 30 minute wait and the burgers again came out raw. Rather than coming to us himself the manager sent a new member of staff (it was her first day and she did her best)All in all an absolute catastrophe and I would recommend steering well clear of this pub. lackadaisical Management and terrible food.
Robert Zapalski: Lovely pub with excellent food and atmosphere. Burgers were fabulous.Dog friendly.
Louis Winterbourne: Stopped by for Sunday lunch and had a fabulous roast, generous portions and a very friendly ambiance. Service was fast and professional despite a busy Sunday lunchtime. The pub is big but with lots of different areas which make for a cosy vibe. We'll definitely be back!
Miray Acanerler Turker: One of the best fish & chips served around here :) always a nice cozy place and lovely staff.
Mark Hurst: Great quiz night fantastic pub its like the tardis inside
Louis Wilkinson: I used to live near this pub. It was great then and it's great now.
Maria Ferrante: Always love the food as I believe they do the very best roast dinner. The host and service is always outstanding. Well done guys.
ilker sener: I'like it this Pub, Specifically You should eat Albert Burger! Really amazing tasty. Btw The last time I ate fish and chips but it was very oily.
Annabel LANE: The Albert is usually good, sadly not on this visit. Seemed massively understaffed- even if it was a really quiet day customerwise. Very slow service and cold food.
Bradley Nealon: We’ve had a great time with my friends on Tuesday. We were sat at the garden which was nice thanks to the weather! The service was great and efficient, drinks fresh and the food was delicious. Great place for a drink after a long dog walk. We also got a dog bowl full of water for Mailo which was really nice of the staff 😊 we will definitely be coming back 👌🏼
Brooke Adams: After booking the private room for our function I was surprised to see we'd just been allocated a little space within the normal pub area. We had a great server who moved us down to the function room but then an hour into our party after decorating the room and seating all our guests and ordering drinks we were ambushed by another woman demanding we move as she had this room booked. Despite being given some free drinks to compensate for this I found the whole experience unprofessional and it ruined our party atmosphere completely and left a sour taste in everyones mouth. I would've expected the General Manager to come and address this but the person who took my booking was nowhere to be seen. As it turns out they'd booked 3 parties the same day and were just trying to squeeze everyone in where they could. The fact we had to vacate the private room at 1.30 to accommodate a party that was not due to start until 4.30 so they could decorate was ridiculous. I don't think you can book someone for a private room then expect them to sit in an open area in the main bar where people are with multiple dogs etc. The whole thing was disorganised and I felt terrible for the poor server who had to deal with it all. He was exceptional in terms of service level and that was the only positive to take from our entire experience. I would definitely not recommend this place if you are hosting an event!
