We had a lovely meal in the upstairs restaurant at the old boat house on Saturday night. With spectacular views across red wharf bay, we enjoyed a lovely meal, good service and a nice atmosphere. Will visit again.

We booked for the upstairs on a Saturday evening and went for an early 6.30 slot. At that point it was quiet and we were pleasantly served. My wife asked for some changes to the vegetables with her choice of main (duck). I ordered a...More

Does anyone know what time it opens in the morning? The website no longer works so this information is not available. Thanks

Hi, ive just called to ask for myself and unfortunately they are Not
Is the Old Boathouse open in the winter months, and if so what are the opening hours? We called mid-afternoon a couple of days ago, hoping for coffee and scones or similar, but it was all shut up, though I have spotted recent reviews. Fond memories of meals and snacks here at other times of year!
