Drink at The Boathouse
The Boathouse is the perfect place to enjoy drinks in Chester. Being owned by a family brewery, cask ale is at the heart of everything we do and we serve some of the best in the area. As well as the local favourites including MPA and Bitter, you can also expect to see limited edition seasonal ales on the bar throughout the year, and not forgetting our refreshing Manchester Craft Lager.
Aside from serving award-winning cask ales, we offer premium gins and spirits and a wine list to suit all tastes. Relax with a glass of your favourite grape on our open riverside terrace or grab a bench in one of our beach huts.
