Canalside Pubs

Below is a sort-able list of canalside pubs and pubs that are a short walk, less that 3/4 of a mile, from the canal. Our list is unique, as we list the distance form the canal to each pub. This will aid people with mobility problems when selecting a pub.

Part of the fun of a narrowboat trip is exploring new places to eat and drink. This list will make a convenient reference as you explore the canals and rivers of the UK.  Currently our list includes pubs along the Ashby, Lancaster, Trent & Mersey, Shropshire Union and Llangollen canals. We are adding more pubs and canals, almost everyday.

If you have information about a new pub, one we've missed or one that has closed, please let us know via the contact page. The information will help other boaters better enjoy the canals.
