About Us

Fish Icon

The Boathouse is the perfect spot for laid back breakfasts, cosy coffees, delicious dining or simply drinks at the bar with friends. Our retractable roof for sunnier days means you can dine with us, al fresco while enjoying the wonderful, waterfront views.

Our Story

Owner, Ben Squire, opened The Boathouse Cafe, founded on a life-long passion for fishing. At the age of 21, with the help of a £1000 grant from The Princes Trust, Ben purchased a fishing boat and started a small business taking the first mackerel and deep-sea fishing trips in Plymouth. Since then, the business has flourished and he now owns a fleet of cruise boats, fishing boats and ferries, connecting Devon and Cornwall.

Ben's love of fishing and seafood, inspired him to open The Boathouse, within the arches that were once his fisherman's stores. Now lovingly renovated, The Boathouse is home to a bar, restaurant, takeaway and fishmongers, serving the fish that's still caught locally on Ben's boats!

Our Boats

Sidney Rose

Sidney Rose is a purpose built 10 metre inshore steel scallop boat, with refrigerated scallop hold. Worked by local crew, she’s one of the top scallop boats in the UK. Our fishermen work daily, from Plymouth and as far afield as Falmouth and Brixham.

Elin D

The Elin D is a 21 foot, Cornish built, inshore fishing boat. She’s designed for the art of catching mackerel with hand lines and fishes the local Plymouth waters, catching the freshest and most delicious mackerel, bass and pollock, which supplies The Boathouse menu and our in house fishmongers.

Sustainability

We are a family run business and fishing runs through our veins! We care greatly about the ocean and fish stocks, after all the livelihoods of local fishermen like us and the future of the industry depends on us working together in harmony with our waters.

Our small inshore fishing day boats are all U15 metres in length and land to South West Ports; Plymouth, Brixham and Newlyn.

Our fishing methods combine a mix of potting, line fishing and responsible trawling. We work within strict guidelines, on approved fishing grounds. To ensure that protected areas are left untouched and the impact of our small fleet on the sea bed is no more than a strong storm.

Unlike large scale industrial fishing, our fleet and the methods we engage are selective and support local crews, migrant workers and the local economy.

We are members of Environment Plymouth and have a strict no single use plastic policy. We are proud to be plastic free, using biodegradable takeaway boxes, cups and paper straws and provide recycling bins to help our customers do their bit too!
