Boat House

A magical way to spend your day

Our brasserie-style menu is inspired by the bountiful produce that surrounds our region, be it land or sea.  Whether you’re seeking a casual breakfast, leisurely lunch, or a romantic dinner, Boat House provides the perfect setting. Our contemporary yet cosy atmosphere invites you to unwind and create cherished moments with friends and loved ones.

Our welcoming and well-stocked bar is complete with a comprehensive wine list to suit all wine lovers, and our terrace and garden is just the place to watch the sun set over Chichester Harbour whilst enjoying one of our delicious cocktails.
