Welcome to The Boathouse
The Boathouse is the perfect place to sit back and relax with delicious food and drinks overlooking the River Dee in Chester. Choose from our floating beer garden or beach huts with heaters for spending long evenings with friends and family with a pint or two, or cosy up inside by the feature fireplace when the weather is cooler. We serve a great range of cask ales, as well as fine wines and a back bar filled with premium gins and spirits. As well as our impressive drinks selection, we serve honest, home-cooked pub food, with a fantastic new 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.

What a little gem of a find. This pub is lovely. Great atmosphere and lovely location right on the river. Perfect for a sunny day. Staff were happy and beer was good. Would definitely go back again on our next visit here.
Rooms are of a very high quality. Consistent in theme and with its placement by the river. Very reasonably priced too and very happy with the cooked options at breakfast. Pub very pleasant and great outdoor areas by the river. Stayed for two nights, but could have done with three! Great job Boathouse team. Definitely be back.
We popped in here for a 'quick' drink, an hour and a half later we were still there with empty plates too! Such a lovely location right on the river, glass of wine in hand, sun out, we could have easily stayed all afternoon. Staff attentive and good food - I had the fish finger sandwich, delicious. Would love to visit again.
