Dating from the 1970s and built on the site of the old coal wharf, this is a low level modern brick built pub and restaurant. Totally free of tie and under the current ownership for over 5 years, this establishment has developed a reputation for good food and beer and is a popular stop off for narrow boat tourists. It has an extensive car park and plenty of outside drinking and eating areas, which lead down to the canal side. Inside there are several comfortably furnished drinking areas and a large separate dining room. The guest ales are invariably from Grainstore (Phipps IPA is a big seller here) and other local brewers within a 30 mile radius. Westons cider is available during the Summer months. Food is served every day but times vary, so check their website for full details. Booking advisable at weekends.
