Boathouse | Traditional beautiful English Country pub in Bath


A waterside country pub on the edge of Bath

Please note, due to factors beyond our control we are running at a reduced operation from Saturday 21st August until Saturday 28th August meaning we will only serve food during the daytime every day until 6pm. Evening service will be drinks only. Thank you for your understanding.

Situated on the banks of the river Avon, just outside the city of Bath, with views of the picturesque countryside, the Boathouse is the perfect example of a traditional English country pub.

Inside, the traditional interior boasts roaring log fires, as well as plenty of areas to relax and unwind and our nine en-suite bedrooms are a delight for those looking for the perfect location to enjoy all that the city of Bath has to offer.


Opening Times

Monday – Thursday: 1130-3pm, 5pm-10.30pm
Friday - Saturday: 8am - 11pm
Sunday: 8am -10pm


`The River,' corrected the Rat.

`And you really live by the river? What a jolly life!'

`By it and with it and on it and in it,' said the Rat. `It's brother and sister to me, and aunts, and company, and food and drink  …it's my world, and I don't want any other. What it hasn't got is not worth having, and what it doesn't know is not worth knowing. Lord! the times we've had together! Whether in winter or summer, spring or autumn, it's always got its fun and its excitements.

Outdoor seating

Why not sit alfresco? It’s the perfect place to clink glasses and have a bite to eat with friends.


Ready, set, spritz

Our selection of new long drinks are just the ticket for those hot summer days.

Due to some factors beyond our control, we will not be serving food at The Boathouse in the evenings after 6pm until the 30th of  September.

Evening service will therefore be drinks only during this time.

If your booking is affected we will be in touch to make alternative arrangements.

Thank you for your understanding,

The Boathouse Team
