Shardlow's Top Music Venue & Marina Bar

Neil and Sara are delighted to be the new owners of The Boathouse Shardlow, formerly Smithys Marina Bar. 

Neil & Sara

We look forward to welcoming customers both old and new, so do pop in and sample our wide selection of drinks. We now have Bass on draught for you to try.

Join us on Sundays between 12pm and 4pm for a traditional roast dinner with fresh veg and all the trimmings.

Hidden away within Shardlow Marina you’ll find our friendly and welcoming much loved Irish Marina Bar.

A place you can walk in, sit down and be content in friendly surroundings with a distinctly Irish feel. Grab a quiet pint and relax or party with pals till late on Fridays and Saturdays.

With frequent live entertainment, friendly atmosphere, not to mention the wide choice of drinks and home made food, you’re always welcome at Smithy’s…


Happy Hour is every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 4.00pm to 7.00pm
