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.

I was in Essex for work and thought we'd visit the Peterboat on the off chance as my father spent a lot of his youth there. It was busy but they managed to fit us in to a on w hour slot. I had the clam chowder to start which was quite delicious and I wished I'd ordered it as a main. But the sea bass I had was also divine! There was no room for pudding! We were served by the lovely and sparkly Jayne
