A unique dining experience. Situated on Peel’s historic quayside, The Boatyard enjoys views of the bustling marina and ancient castle offering you the perfect spot to relax over a delicious lunch or candlelit evening meal. Fresh seafood straight off the boat and local meat from the Islands finest butchers is prepared daily by the head chef and served to you by the friendly Boatyard team.

Seasonal à la carte menus, with daily chef specials including local lobsters, queenies, scallops and whole fish. The kitchen uses as much locally sourced produce as possible to bring you a true taste of the Island and its surrounding seas. As well as a handpicked wine list, the drinks menu features Isle of Man gin, vodka and rum from local distilleries, mineral waters and soft drinks.

The Boatyard caters for gluten free and other special diets on request and welcomes families with young (and old) children who can enjoy the Little Pirates menu and activity bags.
