The tree-lined Union Canal between Edinburgh and the Falkirk Wheel runs past this waterside inn, once used by the early 19th-century navvies who dug the cut. In both the bar and restaurant the menu offers dishes based on local produce, including from the pub’s kitchen garden, and from its own chickens, ducks and Saddleback pigs, the latter providing a rich supply of pork loin, fillet, belly and sausages. Typical dishes on the menu are starters of seared wood pigeon, crispy lamb haggis, butternut and burnt onion; and Cullen skink, followed by sea bass fillets, lightly spiced sweet potato purée, chorizo, scallop and sauce vièrge; beetroot and borlotti bean risotto; and venison loin, braised and rolled haunch, butternut creamed potato, LBV port gel and bitter chocolate. Guest Scottish cask ales may include Trade Winds from Cairngorm Brewery, Dark Island from Orkney and beers from Arran. The pub’s two renovated barges provide Sunday lunch, afternoon tea and dinner cruises. Children and dogs love the big grassy area outside.
