We are a family-run bar and restaurant located directly on the banks of the River Tay in Newport, Fife. With its stunning backdrop of Dundee and the surrounding areas, Boat Brae is the perfect place to meet for coffee and cake, grab a drink or enjoy a meal. Sourcing local wherever we can, we pride ourselves on serving top-quality food and drinks with a welcoming service.

"This is a building which now exists to bring happiness to all who go inside."

Boat Brae offers a brasserie-style menu, consisting of fish, vegetarian, vegan and meat dishes, which is available throughout the whole building. You will find small bites, main courses and sharing boards to suit the mood and occasion. We use numerous local suppliers for both our food and drinks menus and do our best to provide our customers with a top-quality offering.

"Thoughtful, skillfull and considered preparation of fresh ingredients."

Boat Brae is currently closed due to a fire in July 2022 and as such we are unfortunately unable to take reservations. We are making great progress on site and have now started the recruitment process but we are still unable to give a reopening date. Please keep an eye on the website and our social media for any updates. Any vouchers valid on the 16th of July 2022 will be extended for the length of time closed.
