Sugar Boat: a neighbourhood bistro, bar and wine shop.

Located at 30 Colquhoun Square in the heart of Helensburgh, we’re open from 9 o’clock each morning through until late at night: serving morning coffees, light weekend brunches, afternoon cream teas and inspired, seasonal à la carte bistro menus which showcase the best local produce. To complement our food, we offer a wide selection of great drinks too.

From our kitchen: think hand-cut pappardelle with rabbit and mustard; sea trout, apple and fennel salad with pickled cucumber; and Scottish lamb hotpot with buttered kale and young vegetables.

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 haggis Scotch egg or crunch some homemade pork crackling. We’ve even got our own wine shop for you to explore and take your newly-discovered bottles home!
