The Boat House is an independently owned riverside bistro and bar offering freshly prepared food in a friendly and relaxed environment. Located a stones throw from the town centre on the south side of the river, we have some of the best views of the river from the first floor of the 18th Century working boathouse which has been extensively refurbished using reclaimed wood, bespoke furniture and nods to the buildings heritage. The panoramic vista from the dining balcony features the Grade I listed Saxon Clopton Bridge across to the historic Tramway bridge and onto the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, The Boat House is a prime spot for watching the world go by whilst enjoying wonderful food and drink in a friendly and relaxed environment.
The well-stocked bar offers a selection of Purity and Carlsberg draught beers & lagers, handpicked wine and spirits list, craft beers & ciders plus a wide selection of soft drinks to enjoy at the huge zinc topped bar or in our riverside garden.
Whether it’s a morning coffee, long lunch, dinner with friends or a ‘burger & beer’, our menu of freshly prepared dishes, trademark fish specials, outstanding Sunday roasts and classic bar snacks has got you covered. Our enthusiastic team of chefs choose the finest locally sourced ingredients to create seasonal dishes with British and European influences.
The friendly and experienced team look forward to welcoming you to The Boat House!
