Book a Table Book a Room

Welcome to The Ship at Parkgate

A traditional 19th century coastal inn on the Wirral bank of the stunning Dee estuary, has been providing sanctuary and refreshment to locals and visitors alike for over two centuries.

Sympathetically improved in recent years, creating a timeless light and airy pub, staffed by a crew who strive to give warm and genuine hospitality. The Ship is located on the quayside of the former Georgian port of Parkgate in Cheshire, enjoying charming views over the Dee Marshes to North Wales. Upstairs we have a number of smart comfortable rooms, with a handful of front rooms facing the Marshes.

Dine with us

Our menu is an interesting mix of pub classics with some more interesting seasonal dishes. You’ll find a strong influence of seafood amongst our dishes showcasing some of the great fish that we find off British shores. We love to try the not-so-ordinary too taking inspiration from around the world and adding our own twist to the dish.

Sit back & relax

Our buzzy atmosphere stems from our healthy mix of diners and those popping in for a drink or two. You can nestle into a cosy corner, relax in front of our open fire, or take in the stunning Welsh views over the Dee Estuary from our first floor sun deck. Our recently added sun deck is a popular rest for walkers, cyclists and our guests to enjoy a drink whilst embracing the scenery and local wildlife (both the feathered and ice cream munching kind!)
