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 the boards 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, taking pride in its freshly baked breads, homemade puddings and ice creams. 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, we 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.

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 9 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. Depending on the size of your group, we may limited the available arrival times and a duration on the table. 

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 readvertised.

COVID-19


The Isle of Man Government has taken important steps to limit the threat and ultimately reduce cases of COVID-19 on our island to the point where there are no known cases of COVID (as of 11th June). Measures that were put in place to protect residents and the NHS have now started to be relaxed. From the 15th June restaurants can once again start to welcome back customers to dine inside. Also, from the 15th June Physical distancing rules will no longer be in force.

We recognise that not everyone will be confident to return to normal life so quickly or are still manging social distancing. For those who decide to visit our restaurant, we are taking our own measures to ensure a safe and enjoyable dining experience.

  • Enhanced cleaning of surfaces frequently touched e.g. door handles, surfaces, card payment machine, seats.
  • Regular cleaning and sanitising of toilet facilities.
  • Wiping and sanitising menus before and after use.
  • Managing table bookings to allow flow of movement.

How can you help us?

Ensure you maintain good personal hygiene, particularly washing hands frequently, before, during and after visiting the restaurant. Use a hand sanitiser if possible.

If you feel unwell or suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19, DO NOT visit the restaurant.
