Overlooking the wide golden sands of Instow- and boasting uninterrupted views over to the picture postcard village of Appledore and out onto the Atlantic, The Boathouse is a beach bar and restaurant that’s guaranteed to delight.

Situated on the estuary at the confluence of the Taw and Torridge rivers, we’re a melting pot of great British food and drink from across North Devon. And, as you’d expect from a such a coastal venue, we’ve also got a menu that is swimming with a fine selection of fabulous seafood.
