About Boathouse Restaurant

With panoramic views over Christchurch quay the boathouse has the most unique location in Christchurch
In the summer months relax and enjoy the most of the sunshine by dining alfresco in our extensive outside seating areas, while in the winter months stay warm inside by our log fire.
We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner every day throughout the year (sorry closed 25th dec) and always have a fantastic selection of homemade cakes and drinks available through the day.
In addition to this we have live acoustic music playing every weekend from Thursday through to Sunday. PLUS our exclusive chandelier bar is open every Friday & Saturday evening* serving an array of wines, champagnes and cocktails, and tapas along with talented resident d.j’s

*Our chandelier bar is available for private hire, please call the boathouse to check opening times prior to coming

Please note we welcome dogs on our veranda (but unfortunately not inside) - this area is not bookable but available on a first come first served basis.

Had friends from London with me one of which only wanted muscles! We placed our order and 10 minutes later were told you'd run out! My pizza came out as the wrong one (not the waiters fault) and the correct one came about 10 minutes later. Apart from those things the meal, service and atmosphere was great

The staff, of whom there were around at least 6 waiting at tables other than just ours was good to see, and very friendly and welcoming. The polish gentlemen whose name I cannot recall was very accommodating for me and my girlfriend. He personally recommended for the 'Meat Cabbage', according to the special menu, although it was a lot more than that, a very special dish :) I will definitely be back as I have always received good service from the Boathouse and its staff. Thank you for the good weather too :)

Food, service and ambiance in the Chandelier Bar were all excellent as was the lovely view over the Quay. Many thanks to Abi and her colleagues for making the afternoon so memorable.

Had good meals before but this time we were disappointed. Had to send back tepid mussels, and my scandinavian cod had no flavour at all and was rather wet and slimy. I also think salad or fries is a bit much when you pay £17 for cod and chips. Surely you can afford both?

Large party of 8. Service was seamless, they quietly appeared to refill drinks. Food arrived in a timely manner. Place was busy and atmosphere was good but service did not suffer
