Your guide to eating tapas at the Boathouse

Thinking of visiting The Boathouse this summer? Tapas can be a little confusing and intimidating if you have not experienced eating tapas style before. Here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions and a few Myths but to bed ….


What is tapas?

Tapas are a selection of hot or cold dishes these dishes are a starter size and often ordered by couples or small groups of people to share, enjoy a variety of flavours based upon your personal food preferences or try something new without the expense of a fully priced main course. Our front of house team are fully trained in explaining our concept to guests and are always on hand and available should you have any queries.

Our menu here at the Boathouse is influenced largely by Mediterranean Cuisine, we have many Italian and Greek influenced dishes as well as staple Spanish dishes and chefs specials which add a British twist to the term ‘tapas’

The serving of tapas is designed to encourage conversation because people are not so focused on eating an entire meal set out before them. We encourage a relaxed way of dining, and we hope you enjoy your experience with us at the Boathouse.


But I’m hungry and tapas dishes are small….

The beauty of tapas is that it satisfies all appetites, if you’re looking for a snack, looking to celebrate with family, want a romantic meal or your simply very hungry tapas will suit all your needs.

We suggest choosing five dishes between two diners this provides adequate food for a meal out at lunch or evening and typically would cost around £25 for the two of you. Another advantage of tapas is that you can place an order, enjoy your food and then add to it if necessary. For those with the lighter appetite we suggest two dishes per person is enough.

For the larger appetite we offer our famous ‘kings tapas’  this is a selection of 11 dishes all of a taster size which include a mixture of our chefs daily specials and most popular items from our regular tapas menu. Once you have been served your 11th dish you will have the opportunity to have a reserve of any dishes you have particularly enjoyed making this option an ‘all you can eat’ offer for just £20 pp


But I don’t like spicy food….

From our 30 dish tapas menu only 2 dishes can be classed as spicy and have chilli amongst its ingredients. These dishes are pan fried chorizo with chilli and red peppers and marinated chicken skewers.


One of our group is a fussy eater …..

We believe there is no such thing! All of our dishes are made to order and so any listed menu item can be adapted to suit all pallets with any ingredients not to your liking replaced or removed. Our menu is designed to suit all ages, food tastes and preferences we have 8 vegetarian dishes, 6 fish, 6 meat dishes, vegan friendly dishes, food for those with conservative tastes and those with the more adventurous tastes.

Do you cater for Celiacs?

Celiac? no problem! 80% of our menu is gluten free, we do not use flour in any of our sauces and with prior notice any fried foods can be made with corn flour. We also always stock gluten free bread.

Are children welcome?

The Boathouse is a family restaurant and children are welcome during the day time and at evenings, they also love tapas by the way! We do however ask that children under 11 leave the restaurant by 9pm unless they are attending a private party.

What drinks are available at The Boathouse?

We are proud of our bar service and in fact boast the largest range of drinks in the town, we serve a range of cocktails which include some old school classics as well as some of our bar staffs creations ! We also have a range of 18 different flavoured and craft Gins, our whisky corner has 8 single malt whiskies and Bourbons. We also serve a selection of 5 rums and have 22 other spirits on offer.

Our wine list consists of New world, European and British wines with 12 Champagnes and sparkling wines to choose from. Not to mention 5 draft beer and cider products and a never ending choice of bottled beers and craft Ales.

Casanova prosecco

The Boathouse is proud to announce a partnership with Casanova Prosecco, we are currently the only venue outside of London to sell this beautiful range of flavoured and vintage prosecco, it’s a must try!

Our most popular dishes…

We regularly ask our diners what their favourite dishes from our tapas menu are, the items that often spring up are calamari, flambe chicken with sweet peppers and vodka, king prawns with chorizo and truffle oil, pork and fennel terrine with a parmesan sauce and of course our deep fried haloumi!

Of our recent spring time specials the poached trout with caramel and braised beef in balsamic sauce have been particularly popular.
