Good Pub Guide Recommended

Well run canalside building with a lively atmosphere, fantastic range of drinks and extremely good food

There was indeed a Mr Harker who once ran a canal-boat chandler's here right next to the Shropshire Union Canal ? you can still watch the boats from the tall windows that run the length of the main bar. The striking industrial interior with its high ceilings is divided into user-friendly spaces by brick pillars. Walls are covered with old prints hung frame-to-frame, there's a wall of bookshelves above a leather banquette at one end, the mixed dark wood furniture is set out in intimate groups on stripped-wood floors and attractive lamps lend some cosiness; board games. Cheerful staff serve Phoenix Brunning & Price Original and Weetwood Cheshire Cat Blonde Ale with guests such as Abbeydale Moonshine, Big Hand Havok, Heavy Industry Freak Chick, Titanic Plum Porter and Woodfordes Norfolk Nog on handpump, 120 malt whiskies, 20 wines from a well described list, 30 gins and six farm ciders.
