Café by day, and (from the summer onwards) restaurant by night! Our menu ranges from brunch and lunch through to afternoon tea with tasty home-baked cakes, scones and tray bakes, and of course not forgetting the seasonal specials.
We offer a wide variety of options for vegetarians, vegans, and those with allergies, and can adapt most dishes to suit various dietary requirements.
Enjoy the stunning backdrop of Criffel and the River Nith from within the stylish yet cosy atmosphere of The Boathouse, or on sunny days sit out on the deck to enjoy the view. Together with personal service, differing dining options, a well-stocked shop and gift shop and a National Nature Reserve on the doorstep, The Boathouse really does make for a unique visitor experience!
