Not been in Jacksons boat for years but called in for lunch after a friend recommended the place.new management have transformed the place and it will be a great success with all dog walkers and none dog owners. Steak and ale pie 12/10 best I have had for ages. We will be back and will spread the message.

After a lovely afternoon walk around Sale Water Park, we came across the Jackson's boat, 1st your hit by the smell of a open fire mixed with the smell of wet dogs drying and then the sound burning wood cracking. Avoid the fire if you don't want to fall a sleep. Sunday Lunch was nice and the service was welcoming.... More

As pointed out the pub is under new management, this normally wouldn't be anything exceptional, but on this occasion it is. The first change the fire is on again! There is nothing more welcoming than an open fire especially for this time of year. Second, the outside bar is open again. I have to say I doubt it'll be open... More

Dog friendly pub near River Mersey with real fireplace, no TV so you can enjoy the real pub environment. Perfect stop for walkers and cyclists to enjoy homemade meaty steak & ale pie, home made pate or blue burger. Beautiful place, great food and fantastic staff, we will be back for more ;-)👌

I visited jacksons boat today for the first time. I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews in the past. What a lovely welcoming pub. A lovely roaring fire and a warm welcome from the staff. We couldn't have been better taken care of. Will definitely visit again to try the food.

Visited today - what a change in just a short period of time. The pub is under new management (since Friday last week I believe) and already the new management style is having a positive effect. The pub is warm and welcoming, nice real fire and lots of interesting historic items used in decoration. The food was lovely (top Sausages... More
