This business is Good To Go!
We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

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 9 o’clock Monday to Saturday and 10 on a Sunday through until late at night: serving breakfast, morning coffees (and a home made scone or two), afternoon cream teas and inspired, seasonal à la carte bistro menus which showcase the best local produce.

Our courtyard at the rear is a perfect sun trap (when it shines!) and is partially covered with heaters making it a fab place to enjoy al fresco dining or a drink. The terrace at the front is the perfect spot to people watch, enjoy a casual beer or a wee dram or go all in and have lunch or dinner (there’s heaters too!).

Looking for a post-work drink then 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 with over 100 bottles for you to explore and take your new-discoveries home!

We also have a Kitchen and Homewares Store onsite - Everything you want: Nothing you need

We occupy a corner of Helensburgh’s Colquhoun Square: it’s central, easy to find and located close to car parks and public transport links. We look forward to saying “Hello” to you at Sugar Boat, 30 Colquhoun Square soon.

Whilst we are more than happy to welcome walk-in guests – should we have availability at the time – to save any possibility of disappointment, we recommend that you book in advance.
