The Boat House Café – Swanwick
Waterside dining is idyllic by its very nature, but only a few establishments manage to achieve the right blend of picturesque harbourside charm, modern comfort, and exceptional-quality food and drink. The Boat House Café at Swanwick Marina is firmly fixed among this number.
Visit in the morning for hearty breakfasts and brunch, from noon for light bites and lunchtime classics, and in the evening for The Boat House’s bistro-style dinner menu, which pairs the kitchen team’s creative daily menu with freshly prepared locally sourced food. Though dishes change daily, a typical offering might see diners sampling the likes of crispy lamb on sourdough toast with creamy goat’s cheese and harissa, followed by slow-cooked pork belly with creamy mash, braised red cabbage, crispy kale and red wine jus.
Groups of all kinds are warmly welcomed and dogs too, be it for a lunchtime get-together, a large group booking for friends and family to celebrate a special occasion, or simply an intimate evening table for two. Open seven days a week, the café routinely attracts scores of foodies, all of whom visit again and again, safe in the knowledge that they can expect quality seasonal fare every time they visit.
