Trim thatch topping a long, low building of golden limestone makes this canal-side pub stand out at the heart of the canal system. The busy locks here, together with the National Canal Museum directly opposite, are reflected in the decor; lots of old photos, paintings and ephemera. A wide choice of beers will satisfy a thirst, whilst food can be enjoyed in bars, bistro or elegant restaurant. Traditional pub grub is the foundation of robust bar meals; the carte menu in Woodwards Restaurant includes fillet of sea bass with balsamic stir-fried vegetables; slow-cooked rump of lamb; and mushroom and tarragon strudel with Madeira sauce.
