Welcome to The Boat Inn

Situated in a wonderful canal side setting, selling Cask Ales of which one is a permanent house beer plus 3 changing Ales, Belgian Beers, Ciders and Fine Wines.

Home cooked food

All of our food is home cooked on the premises and is sourced, where possible, from local producers. All of our meat comes from Onley Grounds Farm in Willoughby from grass-fed cattle and our steaks are cooked to perfection. You'll be pleased to know we're also FSA 5 star rated.

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.

  • Traditional styled English canalside destination venue
