About The Boaters Inn
The Boaters Inn is situated on the Thames in the beautiful Canbury Gardens, just a ten minute walk from central Kingston. We feature a riverside beer garden that also backs directly onto the park and a quiet sunset balcony. The interior is a mix of classic and contemporary with a 65 seat riverside raised dining area opposite the bar and a smaller dining space by the back garden.
We’ve always been known for serving interesting ales and as such we are CAMRA certified and have an ever-changing selection of real ale from local and national microbreweries; all interesting and sometimes obscure. We’re also a local hub for food and have a seasonally changing menu for lunch and dinner, a comprehensive bar snacks menu as well as a full Sunday roast offering. During the summer we also offer a full BBQ menu from the garden kitchen.
The Boaters Inn is a very family friendly establishment and offer games, colouring books, crayons and a children’s menu for the little ones. As well, we are a dog friendly business so please feel free to bring the pets along for a bowl of water. We are home the longest running weekly free music night in London. Jazz at The Boaters happens at 8pm every Sunday night. See our ‘What’s On’ page for details
Serving seasonal food using only the best locally sourced ingredients we are constantly tweaking the menus to ensure they are as up to date, and as fresh as possible. We offer a full A La Carte menu for lunch and dinner, a tasty mix of hot and cold dishes for individuals or large groups and superb Sunday roast.
We cater for large and small dinner groups with options for canapés, buffet and a summer hog roast if you’re so inclined. Give us enough time and we are more than happy to cater a menu to your dietary needs or simply to satisfy your celebratory cravings.
With a real focus on local and micro breweries we offer up some of the most interesting cask conditioned ale you’ll find in Kingston as well as a wide offering of lager’s and bottles from some of the best brewers in London. We also understand that not everyone is up for a pint so we offer a wide range of spirits and an exciting wine list to comb through.
