Shardlow's Top Music Venue & Marina Bar

We're reopening on Monday 12th April and looking forward to seeing you!


We are sorry to say that, in line with the Government’s request, we are now temporarily closed. We do not know how long these measures will last, but when the time comes, we will all be ready, waiting and excited to see you.

We hope it won’t be too long – so please do keep an eye on our Facebook page and check back here for the latest updates. 

We wish all of our customers, and their families, good health in these unprecedented times. 

If you have any concerns or questions on this matter, please contact us here

COVID-19 Working Procedures and Regulations

We wanted to bring back live music to the Boathouse as soon as we could, but sadly current restrictions mean that we are unable to do so at the moment. Watch this space, as soon as it’s feasible we will be having regular live music sessions again.


Thank You
The Boathouse Team
