Restaurant description

Set on the sloping banks of the River Don, The Boat Inn serves innovative and time-honoured British fare from a trusty menu. A leafy courtyard accommodates al fresco dining, together with open hearths, cosy armchairs and original oak features.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Boat Inn menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Boat Inn ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Facing onto the stunning Sprotborough Lock, The Boat Inn in Doncaster, South Yorkshire offers peaceful riverside walks on the doorstep.

    We ate at the Boat Inn on a Saturday afternoon with friends. The welcome from staff was friendly,the premises were clean and we were shown to our table when we were ready.The food was good,3 had fish and chips and the other chicken pie and we were pleased with our choice and the service. We were not hurried during or after our meal and the service was attentive. Overall, a very good dining experience,the only drawback was the heating in the premises,it was a cold day and out of 4 open fires, only 2 were lit, shame!.

    Lovely setting, sea bass was lovely, however, one of our party ordered a rare steak and it was 'tough as old boots'!! A bit disappointed really.

    Menu was great a good varied choice , loved the sharing starter and our mains of Sea Bass and steak and mushroom pie were cooked to perfection and thoroughly enjoyed. Service was fab and the time taken to discuss our experience at the end was appreciated.
