We decided to go and try out the Boathouse because I'd heard that it had an indoor play area for the kids. Which is always a plus for us as you can actually eat your food without getting indigestion!
The play area is upstairs so try and get a table up there otherwise you'll spend the whole time going up and down the stairs to make sure the kids are alright. Or even better ring in advance and book a table upstairs just to be sure.
The play area was really good, it's not huge but was perfect for my two. It has a soft play frame with two levels and also some wooden toys attached to tables.
The food is typical pub food, think burgers and chips. I had a hickory BBQ burger and chips which cost £9.25. Which I would say is about average pub food prices these days and it was really tasty!
They have a separate childrens menu with all the usual things on it, sausage and chips, burger and chips etc.
What I loved about this place was that after we had finished our meal we were able to sit for quite a while and have another couple of drinks, in peace, while the kiddies played.
The whole place has a pirate theme which makes it great fun for the little ones and another plus is that it's right on the beach so you can go for a stroll along the seafront after you've finished your meal.
We will definitely be going back another day, perhaps when the sun finally makes a 'proper' appearance!
