Welcome to The Boathouse

The Boathouse is a warm, welcoming family pub in the heart of Chester. Situated on the famous River Dee, we’re just a 5 minute walk from Chester city centre shops and attractions.

We’ve a great range of cask ales on offer and subject to weather, you can enjoy them on Chester’s only floating beer garden. As well as our impressive drinks selection, we serve honest, home cooked British pub food. Our Sunday roast is arguably the best in the area, so you’ll have to come down and decide for yourself.

Along with our selection of cask ales, fine wines and great tasting seasonal food, we also provide guest accommodation with cosy, comfortable rooms that overlook the scenic River Dee.

There are always plenty of events taking place in Chester and at The Boathouse. To keep up to date with what’s coming up over the next few weeks, take a look at our What’s On page and sign up to our newsletter.
