About Us


The Boatyard Story

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 our friendly Boatyard team.

Seasonal à la carte and set lunch menus, with daily fisherman specials on our specials which may include local lobsters (seasonal), 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 and gin list, the drinks menu features Isle of Man beers, 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. 

Founded in 2013 by the Mowat Family, Joan, Robin & Laura, as well as the extended Boatyard family look forward to welcoming you to our restaurant by the sea. Please take a moment to view our menus, check out our Instagram feed for pictures and make reservations by booking online.

PLEASE NOTE: Bookings for 8 or more guests

If your party is 8 people or more, please contact the restaurant directly on 01624 845470. You will not be able to make online bookings. If you need to increase the number of guests, which means it will be 8 or more, the below booking conditions will apply. 

DEPOSIT For group booking we will ask for a deposit to confirm your reservation

FOOD PRE- ORDER Our chefs do a fantastic job cooking for up to 70 guests on our busiest lunch and dinner services, so taking a large group booking we ask for a food pre-order to be returned to us in advance (typically no later than 2 days before). Why? This forward planning helps the kitchen order sufficient produce and supplies to ensure we can offer all our menu items to your party, we have limited oven and cooking equipment, so knowing we have a large order coming, our chefs can plan ahead and accommodate your order around the multiple other orders we have to cook for. When you make your booking, we will advice of the need to pre-order. An email with our menus and pre-order sheet will be sent out to your email. 

AVAILABLE TIMES

Depending on the size of your group (8+), we may limited the available arrival times and a duration on the table to fit around other smaller bookings. Generally bookings made at 5.30pm or 6pm will have a table duration of 2 hours 15 mins, bookings at 8pm / 8.30pm and 8.45pm will have the table for the night.

Unfortunately we cannot offer group bookings (8+) at times other those above.   

If you are not able to accept the above booking conditions, we are unable to take your booking. 

USING ONLINE BOOKING

MY PREFERRED TIME IS NOT SHOWING

To manage the number of guests arriving / ordering food at any one time, we limit the number of available time slots. The booking system will only show times that are available. If your preferred time is not shown it could be that there are no more tables available at that time or the number of guests in your party exceeds the number of guests we can accept at that time. Please choose one of the times shown. 

WHY ARE THERE NO TIMES SHOWING AT ALL?

There are a couple of reasons.

1. You may be selecting a day/date we are not normally open. Please read our opening times section or check our facebook page for any special annoucements.

2. All time slots have been allocated. For example for any one time slot we can take up to 10 people. This could be 5 tables of 2, or 2 tables of 5 etc. If there are 8 guests booked at 7pm, then the system will only show availability for tables of 1 or 2 people. If your party is 3 or more, then it will not offer 7pm. We also set the online reservation sytem to allow bookings for a minimum duration. Typically 2hrs 15 mins. Therefore whilst the online booking service may not show times available, we may have availability on the agreement your time at the table is on a shorter duration. Please call us on 01624 845470.

3. Your group size is too big to make online bookings (see note below).

GROUP BOOKINGS & EXCLUSIVE USE

If your party is 8 people or more, please contact the restaurant directly on 01624 845470. You will not be able to make online bookings. For group booking we will ask for a deposit to confirm your reservation and a food pre-order.

Depending on the size of your group, we may limited the available arrival times and a duration on the table. Generally bookings made at 5.30pm  or 6pm will have a table duration of 2 hours 15 mins, bookings at 8pm / 8.30pm and 8.45pm will have the table for the night.  

SPECIAL EVENTS 

Please note that for special events / menus e.g. Fathers Day, Christmas Parties etc, bookings made online are treated as provisional until such time the required deposit has been paid. In your booking confirmation email you will receive important information about the event, and instructions about paying deposits and/or balances. Deposits can be paid by phone or by visiting the restaurant. Please note that we reserve the right to cancel the reservation if the required deposit is not paid within an agreed time (usually 48 hours). If you decide you no longer want the booking, please call to let us know so that the table can be made available to other bookings.
