The Boat House Cafés – Chichester & Swanwick

With locations at both Swawnick and Chichester Marinas our Boat Houses are the perfect venues to enjoy the relaxing harbour surroundings on a sunny day. We’re dog friendly too so there is no need to leave your furry friends behind!

At The Boat House Café Chichester we boast a light and airy dining terrace which will take your outdoor meal experience to the next level – beautiful views, lip-smacking food and fresh summer air. What more could you want? We also know that British weather can be unpredictable so fear not, we have got you (quite literally!) covered with our retractable terrace roof.

Our second Boat House location is The Boat House Café Swanwick which is nestled by the edge of the River Hamble and frequented by locals and visiting yachtsmen alike. Here you can enjoy an exciting menu with a balanced variety of dishes and let’s not forget our wholesome & healthy children’s menu! Our decked terrace will be the spot you want to visit over and over again on those warmer days.

The Bugle

The Bugle is situated in the coastal village of Hamble – a picturesque destination with quaint cobbled streets and riverside views. Our terrace, overlooking the river Hamble, makes the perfect spot for boat watching while you enjoy some fresh food, one of our local real ales or a glass of wine.


Kimbridge Barn

This idyllic and characterful venue is situated amongst the stunning surroundings of the River Test in Hampshire. Mixing charm, sophistication and a cosy ambience, Kimbridge Barn’s beautiful courtyard is the ideal spot to unwind and tuck into a delicious meal made with homegrown produce or enjoy a scrumptious afternoon tea.



The White Horse

We are pretty certain this traditional family pub located near Winchester will quickly become one of your family favourites. Its large garden and dining terrace and the newly improved children’s play area are perfect for keeping the whole family happy while eating al fresco. Oh and did we mention we have an outdoor pizza oven? Pizza, sunshine and good times with the family. Save us a slice!
