The Boathouse Cafe

The Boathouse Cafe is an award winning seafood cafe and restaurant, set in a unique location in the fisherman's arches on the Mayflower Steps, just a stone's throw from Plymouth's historic Barbican.

Our speciality is fresh fish and shellfish, sustainably caught by our own day boat, The Southern Star - along with a changing menu of meat and vegetarian dishes, made using locally sourced, seasonal produce. A little nipper's menu is also available for our younger salty sea dogs! Built into the boatman's stores on Commercial Wharf, The Boathouse Cafe is perfect for cosy coffees and delicious dining from daytime through to evening. There's plenty of covered and heated outside space for dining al fresco, with fantastic views of Sutton Harbour on the left, Mount Batten and the mouth of the River Plym on the right.
