Pub, Restaurant & Riverside Bedrooms

The Boathouse is a unique pub perfectly situated on River Dee in Chester. It’s as close as you can get to the river (without getting your feet wet) and yet just a few paddles away from the city centre.

This pub/restaurant is all about enjoying the beautiful scenic out-of-doors. Its unique features such as its outside river terrace, heated beach huts and floating beer garden make The Boathouse a “not to miss” venue in Chester! The pub proudly serves JW Lees beer, fine wines and good quality home cooked food. The menu features traditional home comforts (including our well known Sunday roast) along with seasonal favourites which are freshly prepared using locally sourced ingredients. This characterful venue is full of atmosphere and friendly staff who are ready to look after you.

With attractions on its door step such as the Grosvenor Park, Chester racecourse and the roman amphitheatre it’s the perfect stop on your day out in Chester. Sit back, relax and enjoy the great food & drink whilst taking in the unspoilt, breath-taking views of Chester’s River Dee.

Stay in one of our 21 tastefully decorated riverside bedrooms. With both double and twin rooms (with extra beds available on request) we welcome those coming for a city stay or relaxing break and also cater for those visiting Chester for professional reasons. Prices start at £95 per night and include everything you’d expect for a comfortable stay with a few nice surprises.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Boathouse!
