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.

Food was OK but they brought 2 incorrect dishes. A main course was incorrect and a dessert. Not really very good.

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.
