The Boathouse Cafe reflects owner Ben’s life-long passion for fishing. It was renovated from an old fisherman’s store, and fitted out by expert wooden boat builder Mike Peonides.

Ben owns and manages six boats as Plymouth Boat Trips, providing fishing trips, cruises and the Cawsand ferry service. His day boat, The Southern Star, provides The Boathouse Café’s fish and shellfish – all caught in local waters using selective fishing methods that safeguard stocks for the future. With a strong commitment to sustainability, anything not caught themselves is always sourced to support local fisheries or from certified sources.

The Boathouse Cafe is open all day and offers everything from a quick coffee to delicious dining. In good weather take a seat on the quayside, for drinking and dining al fresco with fantastic views. Menus vary daily – depending on what’s been caught!
