We use The Boathouse on a regular basis as we have never been dissatisfied with the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff, and of course the quality of the food. Family members who had never been there before joined us and were equally impressed.

Description
With magnificent views of the Dee Estuary its no surprise that Parkgate has a reputation as somewhere to eat whilst enjoying the beautiful British coastline. As could be expected, it’s our fish and shellfish selection that we take a particular pride in, the offerings extensive, the produce fresh and the preparation lovingly cared for.
