A VISIT TO THE BOATSHED CAFE BAR PENZANCE
IS MUCH MORE THAN JUST A DINING EXPEREINCE.
Located on the picturesque harbour side of Penzance town in the South West of England. We pride ourselves on using only the best fresh local ingredients. We offer a range of dishes to suite the whole family or business party from locally caught seafood to the finest West Country Steaks.
We have a full selection of popular starters/sharers which includes items such as Nachos, Moules Mariniere, Grilled Goats Cheese, Seafood and Vegetarian Tapas. Our chef has a regular and ever changing specials menu to tempt you with. We also have an excellent selection of local and new world wines to complement your meal.
Coming to the Boatshed is much more than just a dining experience. This is one of the oldest parts of town where much of the original maritime commercial activity that helped to establish Penzance started from. The Boatshed is an authentic old wharf side building located on the harbour front in Penzance. As you dine beneath great beams and masts of old sailing vessels the atmosphere wreaks of a bygone era of smuggling and shipwrecking. With trading connections and seafaring links with all parts of the continent as well as the new world it has been mentioned that beneath the timbers of the old store and restaurant room, Masters of Neapolitan brigs our of Rio, or homeward bound East Indiamen transacted a bargain or two amidst the rich aromas of Geneva Gin, Schnapps and Turkey Twist. The romance of this past era is still prevalent today when you visit us.
During the season, the Boatshed Café bar is open throughout the day and evening â€“ with the main first floor restaurant being open in the evenings. The Cafe Bar has a distinctly continental feel in keeping with its original heritage. If you care to take a stroll around the harbour to take in the general boating scene you may today be tempted by the rich aroma of freshly ground coffee or to sample one of our splendid wines or beers and watch the world go by from the outside terrace. We have a range of tapas or light bites throughout the day as well as the full dining experience. Children are very welcome and we do indeed provide a children's menu.
We have a fully licensed bar and can cater for private parties including buffets. Our bar and functions room is an ideal venue for birthday parties. We also have free Wi Fi facilities for our customers.
