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.

Pre booked good Sunday morning breakfast at 10am - unusually large portion of smoked salmon, not many people in so good service.

The gin was slightly overpriced. Would have expected more £6.50 mark. Other than that all the food served to us was extremely tasty, and served to us in a good time.

Lovely birthday lunch with family group. Something for everyone on the menu. Service not up to the usual standard but the restaurant was very busy so understandable.

We had a super eve with you yesterday thank you . We were on your large square table , and the previous booking were running late and you kindly reserved us a spot outside for drinks while we were waiting which suited us to a tee . The service was superb , everyone enjoyed their food , our main waitress for the eve lovely (Black jump suit and flip flops ) wait time in between courses perfect . The music was quite loud but added to the atmosphere. So thank you it was a great eve .

Great meal and service was good... gluten free roll was really good (rare!) and the burger was massive... not sure how any one can eat the double decker! Be good to remember for your menu that some gluten free folk are veggies or vegan too, just to be difficult ;)

Had a great time at the Boathouse on Saturday night celebrating a special birthday, Service was great, waiter was very friendly and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble for him and made us feel very welcome ! Long time since I have been there but atmosphere was great too and we had a great evening ! Thank you.

Online table booking was very simple and quick with confirmation. An accommodating and friendly greeting from the concierge. The cocktails are quite expensive for the size of glass served so not good value for money. The food was only good though the creme brulee was disappointing. Over cooked and too eggy. Atmosphere was very noisy, worsened when the entertainment started which I thought was too loud - and we were in the farthest restaurant area from the bar! Not the intimate setting hoped for to celebrate our anniversary. Its more a group or party venue.

A lovely place to have a meal but always feel rushed as when u book it is made clear you only have the table for 2 hours, not long enough for a get together and three course meal! For the prices charged you should have your table for at least 3 hours... food choice and service good but always on the pricey side.

Excellent food. Friendly, efficient service. Great atmosphere but just slightly too loud with the live music if you want to have a conversation! My voice had gone hoarse by the end of the night from having to shout!
