“ Boats sail on the rivers, And ships sail on the seas; But clouds that sail across the sky, Are far prettier than these.” C.Rossetti.
Set against the backdrop of the ancient Selattyn hills, the pretty village of Selattyn is close to the world famous Offa’s Dyke footpath, with Chester and Shrewsbury only a short drive away. It is here, just a mile away from the Welsh border, lucky locals and visitors enjoy great food and drink courtesy of ‘ The Docks’, a handsome building dating from the 17th Century. Lovingly refurbished, this award winning pub serves glorious, flavoursome food, freshly cooked to order. Geoff Hughes is the hugely experienced Chef who creates mouthwatering dishes that are unpretentious and hearty. With a wide range of Ales, draught beers, Wines and interesting Gins, The Docks is a perfect place to drop anchor a while.- Top 100 Review
