Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Water Witch

Pleasant canal-side location with a good number of wooden tables beside the towpath. With the weather good, and restrictions inside due to the coronavirus, I didn't get a proper look around, but the semi-traditional interior seemed to suit the heritage building. I also didn't get to see the handpumps, but I was assured that that the five names reeled off were reasonably local, and my Tiffin Gold from Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery (£3.75) certainly hadn't needed to travel too far.

Will Larter left this review about The Water Witch

Still has nine hand pumps (see previous reviews - I was last here just over five years ago), but at the time of my latest visit two of these had ciders available, with just four real ales. Two were from local Cross Bay, with the others still local-ish but further away. If I visited pubs for food, as most of the customers I saw were doing, I would probably like it more than I do as a beer drinker. Having said that, my Hawkshead Winter Red was in good condition, and I didn't feel totally out of place, so it is good enough for another visit some time. I still prefer the White Cross, though, just a brief stroll along the towpath.

remains a pretty insufferable place, especially in summer when the yuppies of Lancaster descend here en masse. the food takes priority most of the time and it's all just a bit sterile and pretentious. and overpriced.
