About the Pub

Reopened under the stewardship of Graham Price (ex-Brunning and Price) late Sept 2019.

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.

The small cosy bar has been replaced by a split level bar with handpumps on both sides.

The pub is mainly laid out for dining with various dining rooms and side rooms but there is plenty of space for drinkers at the bar.

The riverside gardens are exceptional, offering views of, among other things (if you're incredibly lucky) a family of otters resident opposite.
