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 Friday through to Sunday.
The largest booking we take online is for 6 guests - if you wish to make a larger booking please call us on 01202 480033
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.
Excellent service by attentive staff
Another lovely evening at our favourite restaurant
Food was OK but they brought 2 incorrect dishes. A main course was incorrect and a dessert. Not really very good.
Fantastic, changed booking last minute no problem. Service great and food was lovely.
Good food, good service in a great setting!
Great service, food good apart from hard Yorkshire puddings.
The team were amazing at accommodating a large table at quite short notice. It was my husband's 40th birthday & we had a seamless service, the food was wonderful & the waiting team were so friendly and super helpful!!
Great surroundings and atmosphere. Food nice and reasonably priced, however my portion of chips could have been bigger!
Had a lovely evening. Only quibble was my superfood salad was served in a very warm bowl making the salad wilt
Waiter. Darren brilliant with food information and advice on what to eat and made us feel very welcome. Great time 🥂👍
Fantastic service and brilliant food. Love this place. It never fails to deliver xxx
Lovely meal good food and live music seated in a booth great night out and very good service
Great food and great staff made it a wonderful dinner.
Love the Boathouse, staff are always so accommodating. To be sat out in the sunshine all afternoon in March-how perfect
We have visited many times and always enjoy the atmosphere, the quality of the food and the service. Just one negative on the most recent visit was our waitress ( who we had not seen in there before ) - She did not seem overly interested in us, we had to ask to see the specials board and had to ask for additional drinks, she never bothered come over to check if everything was ok or if we needed anything. I'm guessing that her shift ended and the guy then looking afterwards was excellent, we have seen him in there many times and he always provides a top class service.
Always a treat to come to The Boathouse, the food is excellent and the service faultless. Thank you
So good we came back the next day for breakfast 23 and 24th March 2019
Excellent as always :)
