Super location on the river and ideal for visiting Chester or just for a night stop.The Bar restaurant provides excellent food with a stunning view of the river. Plenty of walks in the location which is ideal for Chester.

A really great place, lovely newly constructed rooms, great food and a great view of the river from the bar. Really good service although I missed the check in desk as tucked away.The only issue was sleep quality which management are addressing currently

About
Description
The Boathouse is a unique pub with 21 riverside bedrooms perfectly situated right on the river Dee in Chester. In 2015 we added Chester's first 'floating beer garden' to our already scenic outside terrace More which has kept The Boathouse evolving and adding a real wow factor. We are proud to serve JW Lees beer & also offer a selection of fine wines from around the world served by the glass or bottle. Our Sunday roast has the reputation as being arguably the best in town and our menu offers a wide variety of tasty dishes served all day every day including breakfast & brunch. Less
