The Boathouse | Welcoming family pub in the heart of Chester

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, as well as fine wines and a back bar filled with premium gins and spirits. Subject to weather, you can even enjoy them on Chester’s only floating beer garden. As well as our impressive drinks selection, we serve honest, home-cooked pub food, with a fantastic menu packed with fresh, seasonal pub favourites. 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 award-winning cask ales and great tasting seasonal food, we also provide guest accommodation with cosy, comfortable rooms, some which overlook the scenic River Dee, perfect for a weekend away in Chester. There are always plenty of events taking place in Chester and at The Boathouse.
