Dog friendly, large beer garden

We are a dog friendly pub, although we ask that owners keep their pets on a lead. We have a wonderful beer garden alongside the canal and a large rear, child friendly garden at the rear complete with Jungle Gym for the little ones.

Rustic barn for special events

We also have a rustic barn which is available for private hire which leads out onto our large decking area, perfect for an evening drink in the sunshine. There is also a large TV in the barn, which is open for major sporting events. A dart board is also situated in the barn for those wishing to throw a few arrows.

Canalside moorings

There are 3 private moorings right outside the pub for boaters wishing to spend the night or two.
