The Bar

The club has it's own licensed bar, tucked away under the boat ramp! It was dug out and constructed by the members in the 1950s and is still the focal point for many of our social activities. Indeed, it was mostly bar profits that eventually (and ironically) paid for the new training Shed behind the boathouse.

The bar is certainly bijou but nice and cosy in the winter for a post training pint. There are worse place to sit than on top of the bar (ie. the boat ramp) and watch the sun setting over Barnes on a balmy summer's evening or, combined with the secluded lawn, a very pleasant place to waste a few hours celebrating a regatta win or talking about what might have been. It's also hosted a few wild parties but the least said about them the better - what goes on at the boat house, stays at the boathouse!

So not only is it a very pleasant riverside location but the beer is half the price of the riverside pubs in Barnes, even if the decor isn't quite as flash!

The bar serves a wide range of bottled real ales and lagers as well as wine and spirits, including the infamous Düsseldorf speciality, Killepitch.
