A warm welcome awaits at Pillings Boat House. This modern venue boasts a stylish, sleek interior and exquisite views overlooking the adjacent marina – during summer, diners can even sit outside on the waterside terrace. The ideal place to relax and unwind, this restaurant offers a laid-back atmosphere as well as the kind of fantastic service and unbeatable food you’d expect from a winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
Food is served throughout the day at Pillings Boat House, and the open kitchen means you can see all of your food being freshly prepared. Stop by first thing in the morning for a taste of the sumptuous breakfast offering. The full English comprises two sausages, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, hash browns, beans and tomatoes, and there’s a tasty vegetarian alternative available too. The scrambled eggs with smoked salmon is perfect if you fancy something sophisticated, and the bacon and sausage sandwiches are a firm favourite.
The menu centres on seasonal, locally sourced ingredients, so you can always be sure of the freshness of your meal. At lunchtime, there’s a range of scrumptious dishes available to satisfy both small and hearty appetites. Looking for a light snack? Try one of the warm ciabattas. Fillings range from roasted Mediterranean vegetables to rib-eye steak with fried onions, and the summer stack – a combination of grilled chicken, crispy bacon, melted mozzarella and pesto – is packed with flavour. For something more filling, opt for one of the house burgers, honey-roasted ham with egg and chips, or classic fish and chips.
In the evening, there’s an equally impressive array of dishes to choose from. Vegetarian choices include a crisp and refreshing Greek salad, as well as tofu tikka masala and a spicy Mexican bean burger. For meat-lovers, the spicy bang bang chicken burger and the lamb and mozzarella burger with minted crème fraîche offer something a little different. If you’re more of a traditionalist, select a juicy rib-eye steak or almond- and herb-crusted salmon tagine. Wash your meal down with one of the bar’s beers – sourced from nearby Charnwood Brewery – or with a glass of wine.
