Ignore the published Sunday opening hours or risk being turned away! I arrived on Sunday 30/06 /14 to be told at one minute to nine I had 'missed the boat' metaphorically speaking. The internet leads us to believe opening hours on Sunday night extend to at least 10:30pm. I was informed last orders were 8:30 to enable everyone to depart... More

Jackson's Boat is the ideal place for a pint or three on a sunny afternoon. The beer garden has swings and a great climbing frame for kids, lots of grass, sun traps and shaded areas from trees. The food wasn't as great as the surroundings. Family of four the bill was £46 for two rib-eye steaks and two burgers so... More

The pub is fortunate to be in a great location right next to the river. There is plenty of outside seating perfect for dog walkers and those wishing to enjoy some rare sunshine. The food isn't the best quality compared to other places like this but then again not the worst...portions were pretty large though for a few of the... More

A great location but the food was extremely disappointing. Our Sunday Roast was served cold and when we notified the waitress it was simply reheated in the microwave! Result- rubbery Yorkshire puds!

Lovely traditional pub, along a very popoular dog walking, cycling, walking route. There is a cycling hire / fixing shop down the lane. This pub has a dog room, food and beer for dogs, the rest of the pub is a bit dark inside. The beer garden has a play area for children and lots of dogs on a sunny... More

Visited on a warm spring day. Lovely area with great park area for the children to play, dogs are allowed and the signs are around so please be aware of this. Food and drink available also for the dogs. We ordered food as we were with friends who have a tiny new born baby, caters for families in the pub... More

The pub is on the River Mersey between Chorlton and Sale. There is a huge outdoor seating area where most people tend to sit while their kids play in the garden. The meals here are reasonable and they have a good range of beers etc including cask ales. It's quiet during the week and can be very busy at weekend.... More

Hi Stuart, Thanks for the comments. We do get very busy when the sun comes out. We do our best to get staff levels right and do check the weather very, very, very often. Unfortunately weather forecasts in this country just don't seem to be that accurate. Fair comment about the toilets needing a revamp. We're in the process of... More
