A beautiful venue set in the welsh countryside over-looking Chirk Marina. A wonderful place to enjoy a freshly prepared and cooked to order meal using vegetables grown in our own garden! We also source only the best local produce wherever possible. Growing in style, The Boathouse is continuing to improve its' food offer and service levels and all the staff are keen to ensure an enjoyable experience. Currently undergoing improvements, although this does not impact on guests comfort. Join us and relax taking in the view on our upstairs patio whilst enjoying a Real Ale, before enjoying a freshly cooked meal by our talented Chef David Fildes. Our aim is to deliver the freshest ingredients with the best of service, please let us know if we do not achieve this! We look forward to seeing you at THE BOATHOUSE! EAT! RELAX! ENJOY!
