Popped in for lunch after a walk around Christchurch quay. I had a chicken and prawn 'Superfood' salad with some bubbly and my boyfriend had Moules marinière with chips and a beer. The salad was so delicious - the prawns were as big as my thumb and accompanied by a zingy dressing, avocado, tomatoes, mixed leaves and seeds. The mussels (and there were a lot of them!) were really nice too - plump and fresh with a creamy sauce and plenty of chips.
We then shared a blondie and ice cream for dessert, which was nice but didn't blow me away (perhaps because they're my signature bake at home!)

Main courses were around £15 but there was a slightly cheaper bar menu too.
Nice relaxed, beachy ambience with wood and a lovely sun terrace circling the indoor restaurant. When it got a little too hot, the staff extended the blinds to shade us from the sun.

Lovely lunch, we'll be returning soon!

We went on a Sunday afternoon about three with no booking! It was very busy but we were found a table inside and had an excellent meal, we shared a bread platter for starters then had Lobster, two Sea Bass and a Fish and Chips. Came to £70 including several drinks. Not cheap but excellent value for what we had. Would recommend it

Called in on the spur of the moment for lunch. Best pizzas we've ever had, and a lovely burger. Service was polite,friendly and efficient. Food and drinks were well priced, will definitely return!

Have eaten at The Boathouse in evenings before. Recently though joined some friends for an enjoyable lunch.
Realised that I had not written reviews for my previous visits and after experiencing it in the daytime felt a review was overdue.
The sun was shining. Had a lovely outside table which was perfect to enjoy the atmosphere & views.
Food & drinks were both tasty & refreshing.
Will definitely visit again. Lovely lunch from start to finish.
