Chance pick for lunch

My wife and I were having a tour around the area and tried to park in B-o-A without any luck. By chance we found a car park tucked away at the back of a housing estate and within a short walk of this pub. As we were both hungry we decided to give it a go. Drinks bought at the... read more

The canal tavern is a lovely pub, with lovely staff members set right next to the canal. I'm a vegetarian so i often find menus overlook vegetarians and go with very boring options but the food here was amazing and whats better it all seems very much home cooked! It is a quiet Gem and i am so glad i... More

We booked lunch for the family , and were happy on arrival that we could go to our table a bit earlier than we had booked for. There was quite a delay for our food, but in all fairness there was a notice saying that hung on the kitchen door. The food was good...large portions, but nothing spectacular. I did... More

After a walk along river and canal we called in for lunch having noted its 5* hygine rating. We had to wait over half an hour for our meal but it was fresh, very tasty and generous portion so worth the wait, we will return.

We went in on a cold January day with our 2 month old bay . Our baby was crying and it was clear we needed to change the nappy as the person behind the bar could hear us but he made no move to help us at all (we were the only ones in the pub). The wine tasted like... More
