Nina says: " It is amazing being part of a new pub opening, it’s been a busy few months and we are all looking forward to welcoming our customers through the doors. The Blue Boat is an inspiring space not just for dining but also for enjoying a drink with fantastic river views."
Jonathon Swaine, Managing Director of Fuller’s Inns, adds: " The Blue Boat is a fantastic addition to our portfolio. It is set to be one of our flagship sites and I am looking forward to seeing this pub gain in popularity, especially on The Boat Race Day."
