Sugar Boat: a relaxed, informal neighbourhood bistro offering great food at great value in a warm & welcoming environment.

Located at 30 Colquhoun Square in the heart of Helensburgh, we’re open from 10 o’clock each morning (11 on a Sunday) through until late at night: serving morning coffees, afternoon cream teas and inspired, seasonal à la carte bistro menus which showcase the best local produce.  We also have a superb 3 course fixed price weekend lunch menu for £16.50. To complement our food, we offer a wide selection of great drinks too.

From our kitchen: think braised venison, buttered neeps & redcurrants; pan-fried cod, olive oil mash, mushroom duxelles; and warm clafoutis, salted caramel ice cream.

At the bar: it’s all about quality craft beers, great spirits and wines, over 25 Scottish gins and creative cocktails. In our wine shop: a wide range of Old and New World wines – from the accessible to the indulgent – awaits to tempt your palate.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sugar Boat soon!


Our courtyard terrace adds an al fresco touch to proceedings, whilst anyone looking for a casual beer or a wee dram is more than welcome to pull up a stool at the bar and perhaps snack on a homemade sausage roll or crunch some pork crackling. We’ve even got our own wine shop for you to explore and take your newly-discovered bottles home!
