We all love St Aubin in the summer months and many of us will have spent time basking in the sunshine outside The Boat House restaurant and bar on the North Quay in St Aubin.  Well just because the sun makes a less frequent appearance now we’re entering the depths of winter doesn’t mean this fabulous venue is any less appealing.   

For those of you that don’t know the venue operates on two floors.  Downstairs is perhaps most well known for its Main Deck bar with big sporting events coverage available on their well-positioned screens, an excellent menu and an extensive range of beers, wines and spirits. Or if you’re feeling sassy why not try one of their hand-crafted cocktails? Along with their a la carte menu they also have a tapas offering so there should be something for everyone.

But it’s upstairs where the venue really comes alive, thanks to the beautiful restaurant with panoramic views of the bay and harbour.  I have to admit this is an area of the venue I hadn’t visited so was delighted when I got invited to sample the Sunday lunch last month, my dining companion and I enjoyed a leisurely lunch of succulent rotisserie chicken with crispy well-seasoned skin and perfectly cooked roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings it was excellent. A popular misconception is the restaurant upstairs is a significantly different offering to downstairs, but many of the dishes are found on both menus and you are welcome to pop upstairs and take your drinks even if you’re not eating, of course if space allows.

If you’re looking for a great venue for a party or event then you can hire out the whole of the upstairs restaurant, which seats 110, for the occasion and the team will be happy to talk through your requirements.  Maybe you’re looking for an alternative out of town location for your works or family Christmas party, if so be sure to check out their excellent three course menu online.

Having now fully recovered from the fire that saw them close for almost a year The Boat House is the flagship venue of The Boat House Group offering modern, stylish and fresh local cuisine.  We met James, director of the group, to talk about what has been their best year to date.  “We’ve had a fantastic year. Despite having lost some long serving employees we have invested in our staff training and we have a great team working at The Boat House. But we are always looking at ways we can continue to improve our offering and we rely on our customers feedback and welcome any comments or suggestions they may have.  If you book online with us you can write a review after your visit or simply email us anytime at”

Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner or simply drinks you’re looking for The Boat House has something for everyone, coupled with excellent service and a great location overlooking the picturesque harbour in St Aubin.
