Our Head Chef, Tom, put together our menu based on proper, seasonal ingredients. Have a look through and see what takes your fancy.


Everyone’s got their favourite drink – their usual. So we put together a menu with as many of them as possible – it might be worth trying a few though, just to be sure.


The best way to get to know us is to come in and say hi – you’ll meet Dan, our General Manager, and our Head Chef Tom might pop his head out of the kitchen too. We’re all a friendly bunch, looking forward to getting to know you.

About us


As you might expect from a pub called ‘The Boat’, we’re right next to the canal in Catherine-de-Barnes, so we’re in a great spot for you to stop by and catch your breath while you’re taking out the dogs, the family, (or just yourself) out for a bit of fresh air.

We’re open all day, every day to sort you out with your morning coffee and a hearty breakfast, for lunch too (whether that calls for a cappuccino or a cocktail) all the way through to dinner and evening drinks, serving up a combination of your favourites, plus a few seasonal specials.

We keep things friendly and familiar here – we’re a pub that's open to everyone. We’ve got comfortable and cosy spaces, including hidden nooks and crannies to nestle into, twinkling lights and the glow of open fires and roaring firepits, there a plenty of spots to hide away and make yourself feel at home.

Whether it’s a family get-together, you’re stopping by for a hearty meal and some drinks with friends, or you just fancy a pint after a long walk, we’ll be here, and we look forward to seeing you.
