The outlook is bright for Jeremy’s @ The Boathouse which is helping to transform Brighouse marina into the place to go for a relaxing night out.
Opened last November in the former premises of Sagar Marine boat builders, the canal side bar and restaurant is going from strength to strength. Owner Rachel Bray is delighted with the response to her new venture.
“I had not worked in the industry before but I had a vision of what I wanted to achieve and so far everything is going to plan. I wanted to create somewhere with good service where people could enjoy a nice meal or have a relaxing drink in nice surroundings.”
At weekends live music adds a party atmosphere, with bands from around Yorkshire welcoming the opportunity to play. “We have been inundated with bands wanting to play,” said Rachel.
The menu will be changed shortly to reflect the new season and summer drinks will also be available.
Rachel has plans for an outdoor drinking area to make the most of the views over the pleasure boats on the canal basin - which would have once been thronged with working vessels at the height of Brighouse’s prosperity as an industrial town.
The venue also has a VIP area for special occasions and can cater for up to 60 for a buffet or 40 people for a sit-down meal.
On April 5, Jeremy’s is hosting a ‘Bring on Spring’ event which will raise funds for Overgate Hospice. There will be around 15 stalls selling an array of goods including jewellery and handbags. Admission is free and the bar will be open. The event is from 11am to 3pm.
Tickets are also on sale for a comedy night on April 10 when Liverpudlian Gary Skyner will provide the laughs. Tickets are £10 which includes a curry supper.
