About
At The Old Boathouse, you can enjoy all day dining and drinking with views of the Water Park from our lakeside tables and outside decking. Menus make the most of seasonal ingredients, showcasing a mix of classic British dishes, sharing platters and lighter meals, with feature dishes including 21-day dry aged steak, beer battered fish & chips and superfood salad. Over at the bar, there is a range of wines, beers and spirits on offer as well as a selection of classic cocktails, Prosecco and Champagne. No weekend would be complete without a traditional Sunday lunch, served here each week with all the trimmings from our special Sunday menu.

Popped in lately on a Friday evening for dinner and drinks. Food was great, although menu limited. Michaela was our waitress, and was great. I would say ever so slightly over priced on the drinks, but it’s a lovely setting to enjoy them in.More
