This is a very smart Fullers pub with a picturesque canal side location and a nice multiple room layout. You enter directly to the bar, with the servery opposite the front door and a couple of rooms off to either side. The bar has a tidy wood panelled counter and traditional bar back with quarry stone flooring along its entire length. To the right, a series of split-level areas emerge, the front part of which was full of standard tables and chairs almost exclusively set up with reserved signs for groups of locals. This gives way to a rear section, partitioned by a glass screen with views out to the canal. There are plenty of tables and chairs crammed into this space, but it seemed very popular, forcing me instead to find a seat in the left-hand public bar. This is a part-bare boarded room with some sections of carpet, furnished with chairs, high stools and a pew. Black and white photos of the canal and various local landmarks line the walls, a dartboard area can be found to the rear, although the board itself is currently missing, attested to only by the large, well-stocked trophy cabinet. TV screens throughout the pub were showing Sky Sports News with the commentary audible on at least one of them and I found myself sat near two old boys who were spouting a load of ridiculous Covid conspiracy theories that all seemed to contradict each other.
I noticed three cask ales at the bar, although no sooner had I entered than I was being asked to fill in my track and trace details before being whisked around to my table by the highly efficient barmaid who greeted me, so I may well have missed some. The options I saw were Fullers London Pride and ESB and Dark Star Hophead and the latter was in good nick and brought over to my table almost instantly.
This is a nice little pub with a good selection of seating areas, comfortable furniture, a decent atmosphere and efficient staff serving decent beer. The canal side location looked like it could be a real winner in the summer months and with few other worthy pubs in the vicinity, I’d say this is well worth checking out if you’re in the area.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Black Horse

Quite an attractive Fuller's pub beside the Grand Union Canal. The two-part bar is accessed from the road cross the overbridge, with a seating / dining area (with full-height windows on two sides) located up a half-flight of stairs and another room downstairs (with beer garden beyond) at towpath level. All tidily furnished and decorated. Ale-wise, I found Pride, ESB and the seasonal Snow Globe available from a total of seven handpumps divided between the two counters, and for a change taking a taster tray of three 1/3rds (£4.00).

My visit last week found this pub to be essentially unchanged since previous reviewers' visits. It enjoys an enviable location right beside the Grand Union Canal, and I can see why anyone either walking down the towpath or on a narrow boat would want to stop for some refreshment here. But the main bar is fairly unremarkable, although it's comfortable and functional enough. There's also a large extension on two levels built at the back of the pub to maximise the canal views I guess, plus a large garden which was of course unused on the cold and wet October day on which I visited.

It's still a Fuller's pub, which had three of their ales on - London Pride (of course), ESB, and Oliver's Island (£1.75 a half). Like Fuller's pubs in general, food is available. This one seemed to have a reasonable menu, with main courses around the £10 - £12 mark (pie of the day, with mash and veg is £10.50), and sarnies around £5 - £6.

This is a fairly straightforward and unpretentious pub. Furnishings seem to be almost entirely normal tables and chairs, a saw at least one large flatscreen TV, plus some live entertainment advertised - in paricular the one and only Stan Bland Band. This isn't a destination pub, but is handily placed for anyone making use of the canal.
