Who would expect a lovely place like that to be in a park in the centre of Birmingham?
I had a meal there on a Fri night, three course menu with 1/2 caraffe of wine for 20 pounds. The food was beautiful (I had a pancake with vegetables as a starter, then a sirloin steak and then a lemon cheesecake) and location great. Unfortunately the weather was really bad so we did not enjoy it as we would have liked. We’ll surely come back.

Went with party of 20. Food was good value and location next to lake very attractive. Busy place. Not sure would stumble across it if had not known where it was as it is in the middle of a large park

It's been quite a while since we dined here but seven of our family descended on the Boathouse recently for Sunday lunch. They offer three "sittings" 12.30, 2.30 and 4.30 and we chose the later one although it was still quite busy when we arrived. We weren't lucky enough to get a table in the main window....the restaurant is in a stunning position overlooking the lake and there was still evidence of recent snowfall. The service was efficient and unobtrusive and more importantly when the food arrived it was hot! The menu changes regularly and between us we selected varied courses. I thoroughly enjoyed the vegetable spring rolls with chilli sauce, comfit of duck, with coffee meringue and tia maria sauce to finish
All in all an excellent lunch at a not extortionate price.

A lovely welcome by Fran and her team. This restaurant never fails to disappoint! Our family are regular visitors. The food is all home cooked and freshly prepared. Delicious Sunday roasts but a huge selection of meats, fish and veggie options available. The starter are phenomenal, with traditional soups, late, prawn cocktail to more adventurous options. The spring rolls, mushrooms in various guises and chicken liver parfait are our favourites. Melt in the mouth roast beef cooked medium rare to perfection, sumptuous duck and turkey for mains. The bowls of mashed carrot, cauliflower and mash were very generous whilst the jugs of additional gravy were most welcome. With scarcely room for dessert we enjoyed the crime brûlée, meringue, Black Forest gateaux and cheese cake. The little extras, such as baskets of bread and bottles of tap water all add to the best Sunday lunch around Sutton. Add to this the plenty of free parking and the stunning view of Bracebridge Pool. We will return soon.

Another perfect afternoon at the Boathouse. Being coming here for 33 years and never been disappointed. The fabulous location on the lake in Sutton park is complimented by the fabulous food and very friendly, helpful staff. Thank you for another perfect lunch!
