Thuck Phat left this review about Canalhouse
There are plenty of reviews detailing this unique pub below so I'll confine myself to saying that I have never been in a pub within which was moored a narrowboat until now.
The building is magnificent but I'm not convinced that the sofas in the bar make the best use of space or that showing Doctor Who with subtitles on the large screen early on Saturday evening adds to the atmosphere.
Beers on: Castle Rock Harvest Pale, Sheriffs Tipple, Yellow Archangel and Preservation, Flipside Dusty Penny and Purbeck Solar Power. Everything we tried was at best so-so but I'm sure that the location, building and food attracts plenty of custom without having to keep tip top ale. And it is a very good place to enjoy the canal views on a nice day with a beer.
I'd treat it in the same way as Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, nip in for one and a look around then head off elsewhere for a decent pint.

Definitely a top 10 Nottingham pub. great venue, great beer (both real ale and foreign bottles) and good food - I recommend the pizzas. its got a nice outdoors area by the canalside for when the sun is out. Had a brilliant pint of Moorhouse Black Cat Mild here.
Good place for a session with the mates or also to take a girl on a date.

A Tynemill (aka Castle Rock) pub which has a USP that means it is worthy of a visit, the canal spur that runs into the pub (you cross a footbridge over it at the entrance to the bar) which often has a boat or two moored in it as it is accessible - the boats are not merely decorative. Now that bit’s out of the way, let’s do the rest of the review. The pub is housed in a large converted warehouse on the canal-side. The interior bar is pretty barn-like (a turn-of-the-millennium modern interior conversion) and didn’t do a huge amount for me, I think this is Tynemill’s attempt at attracting the student/city-dweller crowd for late opening. Beer-wise there are half a dozen ales with four from Castle Rock and there’s a big emphasis on bottled beers alongside some premium keg. The beer quality was a mixed bag and the female bar staff were pretty uninspiring on my visit, brusque and clearly preferring to relax than work. Another big selling point of the is the outside ‘garden’ which is a large cobbled wharf-side area packed with seating and covered by a glass roof, an ideal summer’s sun-trap and a great spot to watch the passing boat traffic. The gents, as noted elsewhere, are quite a hike up numerous stairs.
Well-worth the visit for the novelty value or on a summer's day. However I’d be less inclined to do this one over the other two Tynemill pubs in Nottingham on a return visit unless I had plenty of time.
