user reviews of the Boathouse Inn, Astley

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Old Boat House certainly has the best location amongst Astley's pubs. It's sat on the canal and there is outdoor seating where you can watch boats and the rest of the world go by. The interior was fairly pleasant too. But it did have more of a restaurant feel, than that of a pub. Ales were a little more adventurous than other pubs in Astley - Exmoor Silver Stallion, Timothy Taylor Landlord & Robinsons Dizzy Blonde. Although I would have preferred a darker beer. Not my favourite place in Astley. We moved on to the Miners' Welfare Institute, where we watched a game of cricket. Sadly it's not listed on here. Neither are the next 6 I visited - the Mort Arms, Half Moon & Union Arms in Tyldesley and the Bowling Green Inn, Leigh Rugby Union Club & Nevison Inn in Leigh. I'll try to get the Union Arms added, as it was worthy of mention.

Echo the sentiments of previous reviewers, a traditional type pub, two rooms, home made food, reasonable prices. A delighful change from some of the artifical pub chain offerings. Good choice of ales, friendly service, good location.

Lovely,welcoming canal-side pub. The food is excellant, with a really varied menu which includes specials nearly everyday with everything from Swordfish to Jalfrazi Curries made with fresh spices and Papadums and Chappatis made in house .Debbie and Michelle,the owners, make everyone welcome and have a way about them that makes the atmosphere bubbly and fun.There is an old fashioned Tap room, with pictures of the area past and presant and a Lovely,spacious wooden-themed lounge with big,oak,pine tables where you can spread out with the Sunday papers,which are supplied,and enjoy a great Sunday lunch as well. I have recently discovered this place after being disapointed with the prices and attitudes of the Moorings in Boothstown. If only these two had that place!Try the Boathouse,you really wont be disapointed.

A friendly canal-side pub, Debs and Michelle are great landladies, pool table, darts, jukebox, good value food. Always a choice of real ales (currently Jennings Cumberland, Adnams Broadside, plus a guest beer). Very relaxed and informal, busy outside in summer.

Warm atmosphere, and excellent food at reasonable prices.
A real ale pub.
