Why not treat your significant other to a sensational foodie experience with a view, and choose from a mouthwatering selection of sublime delights including; just-caught flaky cod with chips, mussels, wood-fired pizza, old favourites, plus a whole range of seafood dishes. Awarded Restaurant Of The Year by the Northern Hospitality Awards 2022: The Boathouse Antrim has been named one of the best waterside bars in the UK, and was the only spot to feature on the Guardian’s ‘UK 20 best waterside pubs’.
