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.
Please note we welcome dogs on our veranda and outside areas (but unfortunately not inside) .
always reliable good well cooked food and friendly staff

Lovely waitress, amazing food, such a relaxing atmosphere, very clean, just perfect 👌. Thank you 💞
Food was good. But sea bream was overcooked this time.
This is a beautiful setting and we took friends for a Sunday roast and they were really impressed! So much so they will be coming back with their friends when we are able to!
Nice meal, great service as always. No negatives except, as I've an enormous appetite, I wasn't totally convinced the 10 oz steak was 10 oz.
Nice Atmosphere & good service, fair food & nice wine, all in all a good evening.
Another fantastic meal at The Boathouse and as always a lovely friendly atmosphere. We love it and can’t wait to return after lockdown!
Great quick Sunday lunch.
Great service, food and atmosphere.....love this place!
Food and service excellent.
Lovely lunch, friendly helpful staff. A few vegan options which makes a nice change. Thank you
We were placed on the worst table I think in the whole place- like naughty children put right into a corner of a marque area. We originally booked for 3 but unfortunately one of us has to isolate so was just 2 of us. Wish I’d of not said anything so we could of had A better table. Wet floor, awkward seating, no atmosphere there. Had a lovely time with my friend and food was ok. Pizza and brownie. Servers were polite and quite quick for service. Wasn’t sure about the face masks worn by staff as didn’t cover the mouth / nose like most face guards / masks worn elsewhere. Chucked out at 10pm as expected and wasn’t too hectic which was good. Well stocked for sanitiser dotted about.
The see-through masks your staff are using are wrong and obviously ineffective ... Otherwise a nice evening ...
Had a wonderful brunch with the family, the staff made us very welcome and felt comfortable in these strange times.
This was our first visit as a family, loved the variety of food, the ambience, service was excellent, will definitely visit again.
Staff very attentive, nice relaxed seating area, drinks fine. Disappointed with food- very dry overcooked burger which for £17 is not what you’d expect.
Despite the number of staff it took 3 asks to 3 different members of staff to find out where our food was. The food is mediocre and does not warrant the prices being charged. The Boathouse is trying to emulate a highend ambiance without the food nor service.
Good service, friendly & attentive staff.
