The Boatyard Story

The Boatyard Restaurant opened on May 14th 2013 following a significant refurbishment that included a completely new restaurant interior, new customer entrance and an opening into the kitchen so that diners can get a glimpse of the chefs at work. Formerly known as the Sunset Bistro, and Tyni previous to that, the Mowat family took over the then vacant premises at the beginning of 2013 shortly after a major snow storm, the worst to hit the Isle of Man in over 30 years. Seeing the premises empty and believing the location on the quayside over looking the marina and castle was just too good to pass up, negotiations were made and the deal done. The Mowat family brought in the expertise of interior designer Rumana Swinton to oversee the design brief. The Mowat family wanted a relaxed, friendly seaside coastal theme, taking inspiration from the beautiful scenery around Peel and the west coast. The name ‘Boatyard’ was decided after considerable brainstorming amongst family members and customers. There was actually a boatyard in times gone by on the site of the now restaurant and residential complex, and with the marina and quay opposite it made the ideal name. The interior and food offering of the restaurant incorporates many of the Mowat family trademarks as can be found at Tanroagan and The Swiss House. Tables are decorated with little sardine cans for salt, little boats holding advertising leaflets and rustic glass bottles containing balsamic vinegar and oils for dipping. Complimentary homemade bread is served in a metal bucket, and butter served in vintage sardine tins. Around the restaurant are nods to the theme of the sea and ships with ship rope, lanterns and flags.


Located on the west coast, Peel is a thriving Manx fishing port with a marine heritage that spans hundreds of years. Aptly named “Sunset City” you’ll be awarded stunning views of the sun setting, offers a glimpse of the Mountains of Mourne, and beautiful rugged coastline. Home to an extensive modern marina, the town welcomes a number of pleasure craft throughout the year – many of whom come for the fantastic sandy beach and variety of things to see and do. The magnificent ruins of Peel Castle, located on St Patrick’s Isle, dominate the landscape and visitors can tour the remains as part of the Story of Mann trail. There’s also the opportunity to find out more about the Island’s, and Peel’s, history by visiting the interactive House of Manannan museum, the Leece Museum and the unique Manx Transport Heritage Museum. In Peel you will find the Island’s only cathedral as well as a working kipper curers which offers a fantastic insight into the production of the famous Manx Kipper. Between May and August Peel is also one of the best places in the British Isles to see basking sharks from the shore. Often up to the length of a bus in size they regularly come within metres of the shoreline and surrounding cliffs.
