The Boathouse has extensive on-site catering facilities, with expertise from our chef’s, kitchen and front of house staff providing excellent food choices whatever your specification and budget.

We are able to cater for a wide range of functions, parties and events – with hot / cold buffet options including a selection of desserts, there is always plenty for you and your guests to enjoy. If you would prefer to have just snacks & nibbles for smaller events, this can be arranged too – whatever you need, we can come up with a catering plan for you. If you prefer, we can also arrange outside catering for your event – please speak to us for options and prices.

We have a huge bar that is always fully stocked with a vast selection of wines, spirits and beers, and we run drinks promotions as well as providing bespoke wines, champagnes or buck’s fizz to make your occasion special.

Catering for every function is bespoke – call 01278 792222, tell us what you’d like and we’ll come up with a competitive tailor-made package price just for you.

Full range of food options including:

  • Finger Buffet
  • Hot Food Selection

Party Room Hire

Depending on the event you are organising, there are two ways of hiring the venue. We have DAY HIRE which is suitable for trade shows, conferences or meetings where you do not require the room into the evening.

EVENING HIRE is for functions that require the room after 6pm but also includes the use of the room during the day for setting up and preparation. If your event runs between both sessions then the evening hire option will cover the complete day.
