Hola, You must visit and tell your friends or do what I did and take your friends, the food is wonderful, reasonable priced and lots to choose from, can not wait to sample the tapas night, this place certainly brings a touch of Marbella to Littlehampton. Recommend for breakfast ‘eggs avocado’ or ‘hash browns, black pudding and poached eggs’ washed down with great coffee or a cheeky glass of bubbles! Super friendly team and owner. Four legged friends welcome inside and out. Light and airy inside with a decked area outside to make you feel like you are on holiday when the suns out. Would be an amazing venue for a private party day or night. Can get busy on a nice day (which proves how great this place is) for breakfast but bear with it as it’s so worth the wait. Not that we waited long. Worth looking at their Facebook page to see what’s going as entertainment is sometimes available and food specials.

Hi angmeringpugs

Wow thank you for your lovely review, I am so pleased that you got the feel I am trying to create!

Tapas is such a lovely way to eat and you will agree that the plates are generous and so tasty at only £3.95-£5.95 great value too.
Our tribute acts that we do are simply the best around and I have searched long and hard for the BEST and succeed every time.

Spread the Boathouse word as we really are an amazing venue/destination offering allsorts of things to all people, and we always have something going on.
How about getting together a team of your friends and joining us every other Thursday from 6pm for our fun quiz night, its a hoot!

What a delightful surprise. We’ve been trying all the local restaurants from Littlehampton, Arundel and Chichester for the last 20+ years. The Boat House in the Marina was outstanding. All food locally sourced and cooked from fresh. Lovely staff creating a casual and convivial atmosphere. Great food, good value for money, great evening.

Hi Chris A

Thank you for your kind review and I am glad that you enjoyed your time at The Boathouse, we strive on making the experience one that we would expect and enjoy ourselves.

Using all local suppliers and cooking everything from scratch really does pay off.

We look forward to welcoming you again really soon, now that the weather is being kind pop over and enjoy our outside decking overlooking the river, its the best sunset around.

Whilst staying for our holiday in Rustington, we decided to book in at the boat house. It was a Thursday lunchtime and the place was busy with customers, always a good sign. The owner and waitress came over to welcome us and we chose two chickpea curries and my husband had the plaice. The curries were thoroughly enjoyable and I recommend them, we had one with haloumi and one without. My husband ordered the plaice and pushed it around the plate a bit, he said it was watery and the vegetables were also watery and mush, I told him to pass a comment but he didn't want to cause a fuss as we had my elderly mother with us and it was her birthday treat. We would come back again but not order a fish dish. It was our first visit and where as we enjoyed our curries, he thought his was unpleasant.

Hi Sallyofthemanor

Thank you for your review but I am a little confused as your husband has already reviewed us mentioning his plaice that he didn’t like??
The purpose of trip advisor is that you review YOUR OWN experience and food?
I have taken the comments on board from your husbands review and I am really glad that you enjoyed our tasty chick pea curry and your time at The BoatHouse.
Pop over when you are here again in the evening the views and food are a wonderful match in the summer.

We had lunch here after spending the morning on West beach, Littlehampton. Just 2 minutes drive from the beach parking lot and lovely respite from the hot sun. Also has great outdoor seating on the deck. Dog friendly and good food. We'll definitely be back. Breakfast menu looked scrummy.
