The Boat House Café – Chichester
Boasting unparalleled views of the harbour, both inside and out, The Boat House Café at Chichester Marina is the perfect place to relax with a coffee or glass of wine alongside freshly prepared, locally sourced food while the world sails by. Add to the mix a decked suntrap terrace, and visitors to this idyllic café-come-bistro can’t help but feel as though they’ve discovered a real gem.
Operating an enticing menu that shifts throughout the day – from hearty breakfasts and delicious lunchtime treats, through to bistro-style fare in the evening – there’s always a compelling reason to visit. Enjoy a wholesome start to the day by choosing free-range eggs on toasted sourdough, a full English, or the excellent vegetarian breakfast. From midday, lunchtime favourites like The Boat House toasted club and steak frites are served to scores of hungry waterside diners. Meanwhile, in the evening, The Boat House’s daily changing bistro-style menu sees guests tucking into the likes of Parma ham and mushroom bruschetta followed by baked cod fillet with saffron and garden pea risotto and samphire.
The bistro thrives on the principles of responsible business and sustainable sourcing. The kitchen team draws heavily upon the neighbouring regions of Hampshire and West Sussex for outstanding produce. The Boat House should be at the top of every Chichester foodie’s list. You can bring your dog along too.
