This pub now boasts "Chester's only floating beer garden" which is basically river barge moored on alongside on the Dee and converted into a beer deck. Fair enough.

Reopened last year after a big refurbishment. The main selling point of this pub is the large outside area right next to the river, which is a great place to sit on a sunny day. The outside area has some unusual beach hut seating with heaters, there's also a large gas fire in a barbecue pit. The inside has been modernised to the point of being characterless. There are 2 TV screens in the pub showing flames as if they were fires, pathetic. It's a total tourist trap as you might expect and majors on food. It's a Lees pub and on our visit Lees Bitter & Draymans were available on handpump. The Draymans was an OK pint although it tasted like any other Lees seasonal and the price was reasonable for Chester. It's OK for one but it's too touristy for me.
