Well worth a visit. Very popular and rather up-market. Great selection of ales. I enjoyed standing outside on a warm evening alongside the canal.

Part of the same chain that have the Corn Mill, Llangollen so had a rough idea what to expect. Fairly busy but found a table as we were eating (on recommendation), had Rudgate Ruby Mild and Lamb Crumble (the crumble appeared to be minted peas) ale and found were very good an a reasonable price given the location.

A sign by the door advertises that they're trying to promote an adult atmosphere so no small children inside or out, if in doubt ask, please. Which I considered to be a sensible means of ensuring compliance.

Upmarket place with a good choice of ales. Food is expensive but excellent. Nice to sit outside and watch the barges go by.

Went in this the other day for what must be the furst time in over 20 years. Not much seemed to have changed. There are still old bookshelves around the place, and the food is still overpriced. What does seem to be new(er) is the tables outside by the canal and round the corner into the next street. There are two sets of 6 handpumps which sell mainly (but noy completely) different beers – so 9 or 10 different in all. I tried the Manchester coffee Stout which was very nice. The main drawback of this place is that it is firmly on the “bright young things” circuit, and gets packed out with very loud lager drinkers.

Pricey but well worth a visit. Tremendous selection of ales. Great to sit outside yesterday in warm sunshine watching walkers and canal boats going by.
