The breathtaking views of Portland Marina add nautical charm to the seafaring ambience of The Boat That Rocks. Al fresco dining is a hit on fine days, and the venue has a relaxed feel, whether you’re visiting to wine, dine or enjoy one of the regular live bands.

We started our experience by sampling the smoked chicken, maple-glazed bacon and heritage tomato salad. The tasty chicken was beautifully complemented by a saffron mayonnaise. I also tried the teriyaki salmon, kimchi and spring onion toasted tasca, a delicious and contemporary combination, bursting with flavour. Both starters were generously portioned, but we decided to push the boat out and opt for hearty mains as well. My guest enjoyed the succulent real ale-battered fish and chips with minted crushed peas, while I decided on the rump of lamb with tapenade, confit tomato jus and smoked mash. The lamb was cooked to perfection and simply delicious. The dessert menu was too tempting to turn down. My guest tucked into a warm chocolate brownie that melted in the mouth while I polished off a coconut rice pudding croquette with pineapple, white chocolate and mango, which tasted divine and was superbly presented.

The Boat That Rocks offers a good choice of New World wine and a cocktail bar with their own signature cocktails. The weekend specials board features fish straight from the boat. I highly recommend visiting, although booking is essential, as they do a roaring trade.
