Old Leigh has been one of my favorite places for years & I've often eaten at The Peterboat. It's been 3 years since I was in the country & the pub is now 'gastro', so tables with roses & wine glasses but the menu isn't that gastro.
Having said that my cod was perfectly cooked, fresh & moist in a thin crispy batter and the service from Sophie was excellent. I enjoyed my lunch, but I miss the pub it was

Was going to a 30th birthday meal in Leigh on sea. Arrived at Leigh on sea early so stopped at the Peter Boat to kill time. Place is cosy on the sea front. We didn't order food as we were already going for a meal. Bar service was good. Had a few drinks and was brought out a plate of bar snacks which were lovely and a nice touch. Will come back again.

Ten of us went for a family night out. The food was amazing, really delicious and good value for money. I had the mackerel and the mussels....both lovely but everyone ended up tucking into my mussels...they were delicious....my son had the "melt in the mouth" steak, my daughter had the fish pie....it really was hard to pick a favourite...Service was great, everyone very attentive, drinks kept flowing, brilliant atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and felt "looked after and valued as customers..." Highly recommended....

One of our favourite eateries my husband loves the cockle chowder. Served by the lovely friendly, efficient Dyanna. Hope to visit again soon.
