Situated right by Castle Lock ,there are picnic benches running along the lockside if you want a close up of boating action.The main entrance is off the main road,you enter into a largely open plan interior with the bar to the right,while further back on the left side there are french windows ,with a metal stairway leading down to the lockside.There is a music theme ,and well chosen sounds were being gently played on my lunchtime visit.
It's a free house and the three handpumps will serve a rotating selection of mainly Locales,with a mix of beer styles.On my trip that meant Mr Grundy's Sniper,Chantry New York Pale and Acorn Gorlovka Imperial Stout (a very reasonable £3.90,NBSS 4). The chalk board outside mentions the beers coming soon ,many from breweries close by.
There is also a partially covered rear courtyard,away from the traffic noise and with it's own music speaker.This is a dog friendly spot.A calm and friendly atmosphere from the couple who run it,well done to them for a vast improvement since the dark days of Marston's ownership.Worth including on any real ale tour of the city.

This is no longer a Marston's pub, it's been bought by Admiral. Consequently the number of handpumps is down to three and the range is very pedestrian to say the least, although both my pints were well kept. One large single room, with the left hand side obviously being the live music part. It's nicely decorated with mainly music related pictures etc along with a pool table. There's a small patio area next to the lock on the canal with a few tables. We called in on a Sunday night and had a couple of drinks before we made our way back to the hotel. I asked the landlord if they were open until 11 on the Monday, but when we turned up at 10:20 it was closed. Maybe it was something we said. It's an unremarkable pub at the moment as there's no chance of live music. I've been in a lot worse though.

A fairly down to earth pub on the canalside. Its an open plan place which seems to like its music as there's a small stage to your right on entering. You are also greeted by a shadowy looking mannequin on entering too. The bar is to your right and has 12 handpumps. A rather pedestrian selection ruins it a bit as it seems to be a Marston's house. That said it isn't too bad a place.
