Eating & shopping
The Boathouse at Stackpole Quay
The Boathouse is just a few steps from the tiny harbour of Stackpole Quay and 15 minutes walk from the magical beach of Barafundle. The Boathouse’s focus is ‘fresh local food’.
Our manager Neil and his friendly team are eager to offer you delicious refreshments using local Pembrokeshire produce. Just drop by before or after your visit to the beautiful Stackpole Estate. We have plenty of room for you to relax both inside and out.
A wonderful location
The Boathouse courtyard and orchard look out to Stackpole Quay and provide a lovely setting for entertainment and relaxation. We also hold special events from time to time.
Ice creams and refreshments
If it is quick refreshment you need, then our courtyard kiosk has local Pembrokeshire pasties, ice creams, tea, coffee and cold drinks for sale.
Pembrokeshire is renowned for its variety of small local growers and suppliers who offer high quality produce all year round. Why not join us for lunch at the Boathouse and sample the Stackpole Walled Garden soup of the day made daily with seasonal vegetables from the former estate kitchen gardens.
Other fresh local food lunches include hearty Boathouse multigrain baps filled with Welsh beef and Pembrokeshire gammon. Look out for the daily specials and, for those colder days, beef, red wine and fresh rosemary stew or traditional Welsh cawl are on offer. In addition we have a whole selection of freshly made sandwiches, panini and jacket potatoes all using local Pembrokeshire produce.
Take a look at our child friendly meals with child-sized portions and healthy options. We also have children’s takeaway packed lunches ideal to head to Barafundle with.
Seasonal produce from Stackpole walled garden
The Boathouse sources seasonal vegetables from the Stackpole Estate walled gardens.
The gardens are a must visit. Leased by Pembrokeshire Mencap for horticultural training, you'll get more than a glimpse into the past of a great stately home. You can come away with some delicious fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables or some new plants or a bird box for your garden.
Enjoy the delightful surroundings of the two walled gardens and relax in the secret garden, which is full of eye-catching shrubs.
