The Boat Inn

A pub with a long history

Looking for a traditional British pub with a long history? Try the Boat Inn at Erbistock, a riverside pub that dates back to the 17th century and which combines an old-fashioned friendly atmosphere with 21st-century service and good food. 

There’s a lot to choose from on the menu, from fish and chips to vegetable jalfrezi, oysters or macaroni cheese. Come on Sunday for a Sunday roast, and if you’ve got room, round off your meal with a dessert of sticky toffee pudding or a cheeseboard.

And that’s not all – there are five cask ales on tap and a wine list from prosecco to warm and spicy reds. Well-behaved dogs are welcome inside, there’s a beer garden by the river for sunny days and a crackling fire inside on chillier ones.
