About us

You’ll find us situated right on the seafront of the beautiful North Devon village, Instow. The Boathouse overlooks the Torridge estuary, so you can expect to enjoy some gorgeously breathtaking views and sunsets during your time with us.

We pride ourselves on our wide selection of food, with all dishes lovingly created, prepared and cooked fresh to order. Our menu ranges from favourites such as Beef steak and mushroom pie to a tasty collection of vegetarian dishes. Not to mention the very freshest fish and shellfish, often landed on our doorstep. Our large specials menu changes daily so you really will be spoilt for choice. We cater for all diets so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any queries. We have children ourselves and offer a great children’s menu as well as colouring to keep them entertained whilst you relax.

Please see our menu here.

Our restaurant tables can be booked in advance and at certain times of the year can be very popular, so to avoid disappointment please book in plenty of time by giving us a call on 01271 861292. In the bar side we operate a first come first serve basis and the menu is the same as the restaurant.

Any questions please get in touch, we hope to see you soon
