Welcome Back to the Boathouse.

Things have changed for us all in life at the moment and so has the Boathouse. We had a few months of hibernation earlier this year (2020), but re opened with a bit of a difference. With the winds of change fully upon us we took the opportunity for a bit of a face lift. Same friendly people, same quality offering but we have gone back to our roots.


So what's different.....

Our offering.... taking divine inspiration from our sister property "The Kitchen@Thorpeness we are operating under the guise of a deli/bistro. With wonderful cakes and pastries, plated breakfasts to take away breakfast baps and salad bar all complimented by our Barista's using the finest ‘illy’ coffee and ‘Teapigs’ tea.

If you want something a little bit more substantial, from 12pm our team of chefs are serving an ever-changing lunch menu. Please see our Facebook page for updated info on menus daily.
But that’s not all…….
Our Summer Covid-19 strategy included all of our food and hot drinks being served in/on single use Biodegradable products even down to the cutlery to stop any cross contamination. But now the summer madness is out of the way we are back to our normal crockery service.
We have a new Breakfast bar with USB charging points if you just need a different office space or maybe just come and warm up with our new wood burner.
All very exciting stuff but if you are still unsure or nervous about the trip out, our staff are on hand or just on the end of a phone to talk you through your visit.
Social distancing measures and sanitising stations are in operations and a full track and trace system is in place.
Please note that as we are operating an in and out walk through system and our car park is also currently CLOSED to Customer vehicles to ensure your safety when walking on and off site. (Car park opening as of Tuesday 29th September)


Opening times.......

We are open 6 days a week from 9.30am until 5pm daily.(Closed Mondays currently)
No bookings taken at the moment will be plenty of space to take something to a table and enjoy the view or on a boat whilst rowing down the beautiful river Stour.
One thing you can count on is a warm welcome and a smile from our Boathouse team.


Keeping you safe....
