Club lounge and dining

Walk through the door and straight into the warm, welcoming ambience of the Captain’s Club lounge with the award-winning bar and 2 AA Rosette restaurant positioned at the helm.

A unique dining experience

Catching a bite in our laid-back setting

Relaxing, comfortable and revitalising with our contemporary design and panoramic views that overlook the River Stour with Christchurch in the backdrop. Our seasonal menus and tantalising drinks lists will satisfy your cravings anytime of day or year – our Tanqueray Ten Terrace is a magical place to drop anchor on deck for a spot of alfresco dining and a signature vibrant gin and tonic during the warmer months. Before you dine at The Captain’s table and tuck into chef’s delicious seasonal menu in the 2 AA Rosette restaurant, try one of our colourful cocktails, freshly shaken with all the fun and theatre we love by our award-winning mixologists. The rest of our friendly ‘crew’ will be only too happy to pour you a glass of wine from our fabulous collection housed in our wine cellar that takes centre stage in the room for all wine lovers to admire.

"I was taken here at the weekend for my birthday for dinner by my boyfriend. I have to say it was amazing. Excellent food, lovely staff and amazing settings and views.
Thank you for such a lovely evening and service. I would highly recommend for everyone to go here, I think it's the best place I have been too."
