The Boathouse is one of Shrewsbury's most loved historic pubs. It's stunning location on the banks of the River Severn offer magnificent views of the river and the Quarry park.

Renowned for its sun drenched terrace and extensive beer garden, The Boathouse is the perfect place to watch the boats and ducks go by. In the winter the log fire is always lit and hearty grills, roasts and delicious desserts and puddings are served in the oak beamed interiors.

The Boathouse specialises in excellent local daily fresh produce cooked really well, mostly grills, focusing on top quality beef from a serious attitude to provenance.

Steaks are seared on charcoal grills and the beef burgers are sensational. Grilled fish and sunday roasts are also the local favourites and chef Lee Maddox's passion for deserts is the boathouse's huge gain, the banana fritters are totally irresistible not to mention his chocolate brownies and ice cream !

A wide and varied selection of local real ales and wines, with lots of choice of nibbles means everyone can enjoy their favorite tipple. Ask to see the menu to get a flavour of what's on offer.
