About the Pub

The Boat has a famously picturesque location on the idyllic banks of the River Dee. Dating from the 13th century, its name is derived from the hand-operated chain ferry which crossed the river at this point. Extensions and infill have made this a strung-out building taking advantage of its southerly outlook towards the river. Viewed from the front, the drinking areas – two stone-floored, oak beamed, cosy rooms (featuring a fantastic log fire) - are to the right, and served by a single bar with three handpumps. The other parts comprise dining and function areas The riverside gardens are exceptional, offering views of, among other things (if you're incredibly lucky) a family of otters resident opposite.
