Will Larter left this review about The Boat Inn

My final pub in a quick tour of Melton, and necessarily brief as this and one other both open at 4 and my train was at 4.30. I received a friendly welcome as I walked in, and identified the accent as Scottish, the owner being a woman from Broughty Ferry though 30 years in these parts. The beers were what some would describe as "dull mainstream" (see photos), but my half of Adnams Southwold Bitter was in very good condition and I enjoyed my brief appearance here before skedaddling to the station. Apparently the pub sponsors some local sports teams, and this encourages their members to drink here, so everyone is happy! As described below, this is a very nice pub, well set up and fulfilling its role as a community pub. I'd be more than happy to call again if in these parts.

The Boat consists of a long narrow room with the bar on the right and a cosier seating area on the right as you enter as well described below. It was doing a good trade on my Saturday afternoon visit.
There are just four hand pumps here which had a dull mainstream selection of Marston's Bass, Oakham JHB, Well's Bombardier and Adnam's Broadside. I went for the JHB (£3.30) which was in excellent nick.
I was intending to stay for more than one here but after seeing the depressing choice of beers I necked the JHB down and went to get a train to Peterborough and hour earlier than planned. Despite that it seemed a decent local's boozer.

The Boat Inn is the closest pub to Melton Mowbrays train station.
Once inside there was a long L shaped room which ran to the rear of the pub,the floor was tiled and the ceiling was low beamed giving the room a cosy feel to it,the seating was bench type which faced the bar and small stools.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Bass which was a very nice drink,the other beers were Thwaites Lancaster Bomber,Bombardier and Theakston best.
The pub was fairly busy on our late Saturday afternoon visit,we quite liked this pub,it is the sort of pub i could settle in for a session.
