Welcome to the Boathouse
In 1419 Sir Ralph Bracebridge dammed Ebrook to form Bracebridge Pool; on the banks of which now lies the Boathouse Restaurant. Originally built as a hunting lodge within deer enclosures belonging to the Earl of Warwick, it is reputed that Henry VIII stayed and hunted from here. It was rebuilt in the 19th Century in the romantic gothic style the Boathouse is found in today.
The Boathouse at Bracebridge offers modern British brasserie and bistro cooking with spectacular views across Sutton Park and Bracebridge Pool. The dining room is a tasteful mix of the old and the new; blonde wooden floors, with long refectory tables, contemporary canvas art and soft lighting. This is the backdrop for dining in Sutton Coldfield at its best.
You can enjoy a la carte dining or a table d'hote fixed menu, at lunch or dinner, six days a week with a traditional 3 course Luncheon being served on a Sunday.
In keeping with the times, a 3 course credit crunch dinner with a complimentary half bottle of wine is available Monday to Wednesday at £15.50 per person; this offers fantastic value for money. The restaurant also has a lunchtime terrace menu available for those fancying a light bite whilst watching the resident grey wagtails dancing and skipping across Bracebridge Pool.
Whatever reason brings you to join us and all the team at the boathouse, you are guaranteed a warm welcome and a fantastic dining experience that will bring you back again and again.
We look forward to welcoming you soon
Laurence and Fran
