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 option 1
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.
Always enjoy eating here
We had a lovely late lunch and the Christmas menu was delicious - we both had different starters, mains and puds and all 6 dishes were yum, good portions and beautifully presented. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. This place never fails to deliver great breakfasts and lunches and we will continue to use this restaurant as long as this continues to be the case
A lovely evening catching up with friends. A great atmosphere in the bar with the log burner and in the restaurant; both all decked out for Christmas. Staff all very helpful and good menu choices. We will be back!
Had a lovely evening the atmosphere was great and the food was delicious, will be returning
Fab as always.

Took mum for her birthday. Food was great, tasy and well presented. The staff were attentive without being in your face. Enjoyed coming and will certainly visit again
A fantastic evening with a great atmosphere and super service ... Oliver was awesome.. highly recommend 😁
Great Location, good atmosphere and delicious food
We were looking forward to eating here having been in numerous times for drinks and quite honestly it was appalling! The food was horrendous, atmosphere ok but overall an experience never to be repeated!!
Ordered the fish pie and broccoli. The pie was tiny and was supposed to have had salmon in it , I couldn’t find any ! Would have been ok as a starter. Very limited pudding choice too Disappointed
Great way to spend a wet Saturday eating & drinking at the Boathouse. The food & service was excellent. Well done guys very good
Disappointed with the gambas pil pil. Had the same dish in May. Not nearly as nice this time. Prawns much smaller. It was all chorizo! Also waitresses are quite indifferent and not very friendly. Shame because we love the atmosphere!
We were a group of 8 coming in for a Sunday roast and there were clean plates all around! Best Sunday roast I think i've ever had out! Will definitely be coming back.
Always lovely food, atmosphere and service.
Had a great meal with my daughter. The hake with pea and prawn risotto was absolutely delicious.
It was extremely warm in the restaurant - a bit uncomfortable. Quite noisy as well. It was a shame we didn’t get a choice of table
Good attentive service and a very nice Thai curry
Lovely restaurant but service was a bit unenthusiastic and below what you would expect and what I’ve experienced there before , would still go back again as it’s a really nice place.
A cosy autumn evening - perfect :)
A great place by the river to be with friends for fun and food
