Trent Navigation is the tap for Navigation Brewery that sits at the rear. The interior is L-shaped and I counted eight hand pumps on the central L-shaped bar. Navigation’s own New Dawn, American IPA, Splendor and Rebel were available alongside Bass and Pride, two pumps were unused. The service was polite, I went for the New Dawn which was a decent drop. Wimbledon tennis was muted on the television whilst some background music played, but not a lot else was going on during a recent early Wednesday evening visit. It was much busier out the back where there’s a large decked seating area, as well as lots of picnic tables covered by an open barn. I’ll pop back in when next passing to try another Navigation beer.

The exterior has beautiful brown glazed tiles,it's close to the canal but not canalside.However it is very close to Meadow Lane home to Notts County and should do well on match days.It's also home to the Navigation Brewery with kit visible in the rear yard and substantial beer garden.Inside it quite smart with high tables opposite the bar ,and cream leather banquettes at the far end and near the front entrance.Behind the bar,with no servery is a rear lounge with more smart furniture and a paisley carpet .Three Sky Sports screens were all on mute on my lunchtime visit.
There was a friendly,chatty welcome and although there were 12 handpumps ,the range on my visit was just the house New Dawn Pale,Rebel and American IPA (Musty maybe first pint,NBSS 2.5).
It's in the GBG but you will need to be a fan of Navigation beers to get the best out of this pub.Notts Co. were playing two days after my visit,I hope they put more beers on for those punters.

Very underwhelmed by this pub. Located next to the navigation brewery this is their brewery tap showcasing their ales. The pub itself I have no quibbles with, a nice traditional style with a centrally located rectangular bar with the drinking area bent around it. The beer however was woefully disappointing. 13 hand pumps but only 7 were in use and three of these were duplicates leaving only four. Not deterred I ordered a pint of their Britannia bitter at a very good price of £2.70 and found it woefully conditioned with no head retention and flat as a pancake and was a pretty poor drink in my opinion. Not deterred I then sampled their New dawn pale ale which was even worse!! Kept in such a bad state and again no head at all and all the pumps had sparklers, I was really unimpressed with their offerings and speaking to a lot of people this seems to be a trend with navigation beers. I think this places needs to have a good re think about their offerings because I probably would not return which is a same as the pricing is good and so is its potential and layout.
