Went down to this establishment for a midweek treat on a nice sunny day. The pub was quite busy, but the staff were efficient as well as friendly. All the food was well presented, piping hot and cooked to perfection. Would recommend a visit here after a walk round the water park, or down the river.

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon out in the beer garden. Great place to relax with the dogs or kids after a walk down the Mersey. The food portions were fantastic and very reasonably priced too. The staff were really friendly and despite being quite busy managed to keep the tables clean. Can't wait to spend more sunny afternoons here. Dog... More

The Jacksons boat is a nice pub that has friendly helpful staff. The food (what there was of it) was fairly tasty. I had the chicken roast however the vegetables were lukewarm and there were not many of them. The chicken was fairly small too. I didn't come away feeling satisfied. In short a nice pub but the food needs... More

After hearing that Jacksons Boat had changed hands four of us visited for Sunday lunch recently after a long walk along the Mersey. We were warmly welcomed and were impressed with the improvement in the place, We had four sunday roasts which were excellent at a very reasonable price. We would certainly recommend this pub. The only downside is that... More

This place has gone down so far, it's scrapping the barrel. I went for a drink with friends, and the minute you open the doors you smell strong stale beer. Dirty tables, carpet needed a serious vacuuming, and the bar staff nowhere to be seen... and when someone did appear they completely ignored us. Needless to say we left and... More

Recently enjoyed an excellent Christmas lunch with a local club. The food was beautifully cooked, served piping hot by extremely pleasant staff who coped brilliantly with nearly 24 discerning customers! Would certainly recommend this restaurant for quality and value for money.

Ive been visiting Jackson's boat since I was a kid and have some really fond memories of the place. I'm please to report I wasnt disappointed. The food was excellent and atmosphere was very cosy and homely. The long haired chef was particularly dishy. All in all. Lovely place for home cooked grub and family atmosphere and it's even dog...
