Dining out with nine friends. First dining experience at the Boat House, our group of diners met within the bar area until table was prepared, ambience within the bar area, perfect. Restaurant not so cosy, as a group we had pre-booked from the Christmas menu. Food was good but on the small side. Service not good, staff took to scrap... More

We celebrated my husbands 50th on Saturday and had a fantastic evening. We find the Boathouse has just 'got it!' when it comes to ambience!!! We eat of the Christmas menu and the food was of a very good quality. Most of the party had Duck the criticism is the dish lacks potato- when you are sat next to someone... More

Located at Christchurch Quay this is a beautiful location. Outdoor seating is also available which is great on a sunny day and patio heaters are used when there is a bit of a chill in the colder months. The food is well presented and of high quality, the service is friendly and good. Service can be a little bit slow... More

This restaurant is about an hour away from where I live. I had eaten there once before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I was looking forward to going there again. My wife and I worked up an appetite by climbing Hengistbury Head beforehand and then drove into Christchurch. There was a temporary hiccup there when the parking machine in... More

Visited recently for a birthday meal with friends. Had been before some years ago but it has been recently refurbished following a fire. It was mid-week but still very busy, and buzzy. Had to wait a little while for our table but the bar area is very comfortable. Menu is interesting with several fish choices, as you would expect considering... More

Love the location, Delicious salmon special and fab battered fish. Less keen on the chips, though I've had the sweet potato chips before and they were delicious. Great service. The price would stop me making it a regular .

I took my good lady for an early supper to the Boathouse Christchurch. It was our first visit as we where in town on business . I would strongly recommend the Boathouse for its fabulous location overlooking the quay next to a thousand year old Priory to all my friends. We arrived at around 5.40 only to be told the... More
