Welcome to The Boathouse
Overlooking golden sands and the confluence of the Taw and Torridge rivers, The Boathouse in Instow is a beach bar and restaurant with a serious passion for great food, fresh fish, fine wines and good times.
Start your day with a fresh ground coffee prepared to barista standards by our friendly team.
Or come in for lunch or an evening meal and enjoy our seasonally evolving menu, reflecting the fabulous produce available from both local day boats and our extensive network of suppliers.
And if you’d like to bring your four legged friend, please note we’re dog friendly, with your canine companion welcome to join you at tables booked in our bar or on our famous ‘Top Deck’.
Alfresco Dining in Instow
In the summer months there really is no better place to spend a sunny day than on our ‘Top Deck’, with your favourite tipple in hand. Our decking has outside tables for those who want to dine al fresco as well as a partly covered area which means the unpredictable English weather can’t spoil the fun!
