Quinno _ left this review about Boulters Lock

Posh bar brasserie situated atop a Thames lock - not riverside, but right on it. Up a flight of stairs on entering, to the very modern bar. This has large floor-to-ceiling plate glass windows to take advantage of the central and elevated river view. The outside terrace is a proper draw and I braved the howling gale to enjoy it. Quiz advertised on Sundays. Two ales on, Rebellion IPA and Tribute. Happy hour so only £1.40 for my Rebellion which was a good job as it wasn’t really up to much. Still, it's worth having a look for the view.

The Boulters Lock Inn used to be a hotel with attached bar and restaurant and wasn't particularly good at any of these activities. And I can talk from experience having had the misfortune to stay there several times on business.
But was told by a work colleague that it has all changed, so therefore dropped in to see for myself when back in the Maidenhead area the other day.
Now the only saving grace of the old Boulters Lock hotel was the fabulous location sitting almost above the lock on the River Thames and this remains one of the key features.
Its now no longer a hotel, as they have sold off all the annex guest rooms for private flats, but now a bar and restaurant which have had a major refurb.
The downstairs is a fairly posh restaurant which befits is Maidenhead riverside location with fairly posh prices. But we went upstairs to the bar area.
This now has a very modern style, a plush bar area and a lot of comfortable lounging and dining seating area and a couple of large flat screen teles which were showing news channels on our visit. But the piece–de–resistance is the excellent outside decking area, now improved and extended, which virtually means you can have a beer whist sitting on top of the River Thames. Pleased to find two real ales on offer, St. Austell Brewery Tribute and Brakspears Bitter, and both were good. We ate off the bar menu which is not vast in its choice, but were impressed with what we had with regards to quantity and quality. The Fish and Three Times cooked chips (Blumenthal's got a lot to answer for round here) was a bit pricy at £10.00 but is still cheeper than the pubs and bars in Cookham further down the river.
So all in all a pleasant experience and I hope it works for the new owners.
One small word of warning is that there is virtually no parking by the Inn, so the best option is to park in the public car park a little bit further up the Lower Cookham Road and walk back over the Lock bridge to the Inn.
