The Boat House is a restaurant located in St Aubin’s which it is part of The Boat House Group. The Boat House is the group’s flagship venue and is described as a contemporary restaurant and bar which we would very much agree with.
The Boat House is a restaurant we always choose to visit when we are in Jersey. We love everything about the restaurant; the food, the views and the atmosphere.
The restaurant is located upstairs (upper deck) overlooking the sea, you can see for miles on a clear day. It’s important to know that the upper deck is only open at the weekend (Friday-Sunday).
The menu is predominately fish (like most places in Jersey), they have an extensive menu that made it difficult for me to choose what to order as there was so much I could have chosen.
We started with a bottle of Moët champagne which was a lovely treat as we were celebrating my mums birthday.
For starter I went for the Jersey Crab which was served with fresh lemon, celeriac remoulade, capers on toasted sour dough bread. It was so delicious and incredibly filling, I would definitely recommend it as a starter.
My parents ordered the Fish Mixed Grill to share which includes a selection of fresh seasonal shellfish and is served with new potatoes. This looked pretty epic and my parents said it tasted delicious as well. It cost £46.50 and for the amount of fresh fish they got it was amazing value.
I went the the Duck which was served with a gravy and blackberries. It also came with roasted pumpkin and potato. I ordered some broccoli to have on the side as I do love a bit of veg! I would 100% recommend this dish and I would definitely opt for it again.
I was so full after my main course I unfortunately couldn’t fit in a dessert! I did see the dessert menu though and they all looked super tasty!
There is also a bar and restaurant on the ground floor (main deck) where we have also been for a drink, the vibe is completely different and much more relaxed to the upper deck. They have TV’s for major sporting events and also sell an extensive range of beers and wine. The main deck is open seven days a week and has an a la carte menu.
There is also an outside seating area which on a nice day is absolutely heaving giving the place a lively atmosphere.
We are yet to try any of the other Boat House Group restaurants but they are definitely on our list. The Tree House is located in St Brelade and The Farm House is St John.
