Value
The Boathouse is a unique pub with 21 riverside bedrooms perfectly situated right on the river Dee in Chester. In 2015 we added Chester's first 'floating beer garden' to our already scenic outside terrace which has kept The Boathouse evolving and adding a real wow factor. We are proud to serve JW Lees beer & also offer a selection of fine wines from around the world served by the glass or bottle. Our Sunday roast has the reputation as being arguably the best in town and our menu offers a wide variety of tasty dishes served all day every day including breakfast & brunch.

This pub is on a great location on the river with a friendly ambience and service. It has a floating beer garden! We would have liked to have had a Sunday lunch as it looked very nice! We would definitely go back

Beautiful setting along the river, I can imagine in the summer it's spectacular, five minute walk into town centre and local amenities, good selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Cheshire Oaks outlet ten minutes in car.
