    The Boat house has a lovely location right on the end of the Promenade, just where path goes foor walks along the estuary and into Heswall.

    Favorite Dish: It serves good traditional home cooking - cooked frehly to order so you'll have to wait but it will be worth it!

    If really hungry go for the mixed grill!
    For desert try the chochocolate brownie, marshmallow, banana and strawberry skewers served with hot choc sauce and ice-cream. Simply divine :-))

Parkgate Off The Beaten Path

    The lane ends up on the front of the Old Quay (near the pub of the same name). Here you can look out and imagine the ships that at one time would have sailed up here. Now it is just grass and marshes and in the distance you can see North Wales

    At the end of the prom (Mostyn school end) there is a pub called the Old Quay - well at the side of this is a lane leading to some houses - some of them are quite ornate. This large house was probably the original manor house of Parkgate.

    Favorite thing: Its a pleasant stroll along the promenade at Parkgate, looking across the Dee estuary to North Wales, enjoying one of their famous ice-creams.
    It struck me recently though what a sad lonely and forlorn sort of place it is today. So many business were closed, premises deserted and now delapidated - such a shame really.

    Favorite thing: Parkgate was once a bustling port in the 18th century in the south of Wirral/Cheshire with tall ships leaving for Ireland - usually for the wars there. The once thriving promenade is now bordered by marshes since the Port of Liverpool was dredged, the Dee silted up over the years and the marsh plants took over with bullrushes predominant.

    Favorite thing: In the middle of the promenade is the Balcony House - I love the detail in the wrought ironwork here.
