A country pub near you oozing rural charm and rustic character.
The Boat Inn has served the local community of Sprotborough for centuries, dating back as far as 1652 where one of our most famous guests, Sir Walter Scott was said to write a tract of the novel Ivanhoe. After suffering damages from flooding, the pub was recently restored to its traditional best, with the utmost care taken to maintain the original interior style.
