Description: With its records dating back to 1757, The Peterboat is a pub rich in local history. This, along with the gorgeous panoramic views across the Thames Estuary, has established the venue as the true heart of Old Leigh. Paying homage to our traditional roots and waterfront setting, our food and drink choices are exciting and varied. Our varied menu includes 'Traditional Fish'n'Chips' and our famous ' Cockle Chowder' - served with a great view over the Thames Estuary . The Peterboat is an all rounder - In the summer our extensive patio is the best place to soak up the sunshine and take in our panoramic views across the estuary. In the winter our cosy open fires provide the warmest of welcomes. At any time of year great service and customer care are embedded in our ethos - we look forward to welcoming you.

We arrived for lunch at midday. From the start the young lady looking after us was welcoming and attentive. As the restaurant filled a second waitress was allocated to our table, maintaining a great level of service throughout. Enquiries about the menu and slight changes were handled naturally and without fuss.
The Peterboat cockle chowder is already legend and my cod 'n' chips was first class. My son raved about his sea bass and my daughter was satisfied with the range of vegetarian options. All round great value, an excellent experience.
So why only a 4 star? First, it's a pub and not a restaurant; for me 4 star for a pub is top review. Second, there isn't enough balance in the range of real ales; too many heavy flavoured over 4.5% options and not enough session beer. But that didn't impact me giving my top score.

6 of us went to the Peterboat Friday 13th for their Christmas party night,
The food was really good, would highly recommend the Christmas turkey roast.
We was served by a beautiful and very friendly waitress called Elizabeth who did an excellent job for us.
And we got to sit right by the live band who were really good.

Would recommend eating here especially on a party night.

Stopped on for a late lunch on Weds 11th. The food was terrific, my skate wing was delicious and my girlfriends mussels were done perfectly. Our only regret was we didn't have room for dessert..
Service by Glenn was top notch.
Thank you..
