The Boat House Inn


Wonderfully situated on the banks of the River Aire in picturesque Saltaire, the original boathouse was built in 1871. It was later converted into a pub, but by early in the new millennium the building was abandoned and derelict. The present owners undertook a complete refurbishment in 2009, retaining the historical exterior features but transforming the interior into a beautifully designed and comfortable modern inn.

The Boathouse Inn offers well-kept traditional cask ales (with guest ales) alongside imported beers and lagers, an intelligent selection of wines available by the glass, carafe or bottle, as well as a good range of coffees and hot drinks. We pride ourselves on our carefully prepared, simple grown-up food: from snacks and sandwiches to a full three-course menu of pub classics as well as some more out-of-the-ordinary specialties.

The Boathouse is the perfect place to meet friends and socialise, enjoy some restorative food and drink after a good walk, or simply relax and watch the river flow by. We look forward to welcoming you.

We have introduced some new measures for everyone’s safety including:

  1. Completing a covid-19 risk assessment and an extensive deep clean prior to opening
  2. Introducing hand sanitiser stations for staff, delivery partners and customers throughout the premises
  3. Serving a reduced menu for now until we’re back up and running fully
  4. Limiting the number of customers and tables to comply with social distancing guidelines
  5. Limiting time at tables to allow for extra cleaning and safety measures to take place
  6. Limiting time at tables to allow for extra cleaning and safety measures to take place
  7. Asking customers to make contactless / card payments wherever possible
  8. Reducing opening hours to 11am - 8pm daily

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
