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.

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.

The perfect way to end the week with the best Sunday Roast in Chester. Bring the family together to enjoy tender slow roasted meats or meat-free options too, fresh seasonal veg and golden roast potatoes perfectly fluffy in the middle and all the trimmings, now with bottomless gravy and home made Yorkshire puddings. Treat your date to a sharing platter for £32.50 to share for the ultimate feast and the ideal way to cosy up on a Sunday afternoon.
