Can’t you tell how excited I am to eat?! I am definitely a fat kid at heart.
There’s just something special about eating by the water, right? Well I found a gem of a place in Chester, one of the most picturesque cities I have ever come across in my life! The city itself is over two thousand years old, and was a Roman colony – you can still walk on the original walls that they built to protect it! Not only that, but you can see an excavated arena where the gladiators used to fight. The city centre itself is like something out of a fairy tale, with beautiful architecture topped off by a stunning cathedral that you have to see to believe.
Chester is situated on the river Dee, and it was down by this charming river that I found the boat house. It’s very much in the style of the traditional British pub – think lots of wood and low ceilings – and the food matched the theme, with classics from Black pudding to fish and chips. The service was friendly and the chefs delivered. I ate mouthfuls of exquisite goat cheese as I looked out over the water at the fabulous architecture of the houses on the opposite bank. In the summer, you could even hire a boat and work off the beers! Make Chester a priority when you visit England!
