The Canal Turn has a conservatory which over looks the canal, so we could sit in the sunshine with the dog. The kitchen was closed the day we where there, but... read more

I called in yesterday for a pint and a packet of crisps. A good range of real ales on offer and several other customers sitting in the conservatory overlooking the canal and its marina. I cannot comment on the food, though food for ducks is on sale. The staff were perfectly civil.

On our return we decided to stop there as it looked lovely with the sun shining and the canal traffic going... More
