Soup Dragon left this review about The Boat Inn

This is a detached Marston's pub and eatery in white render with black paint work that sits alongside the canal. There is a patio.

The interior is open plan but divided into three areas and forms a T-shape. There is a small drinking area at the serving bar itself, which is in cream patterned wallpaper and red wood panel. There is a wood fire and a collection of hanging jugs, along with canal ephemera on the walls. The other parts are dining areas. One part of the two dining areas is in the same decor, with a bay window. Th other is in red, with mustard wood panel and grey upper walls, with a brick fire that was a copper canopy. There is also a TV here (not on) and a dart board. We ate here and the food was fine. The service was fine and the clientele seemed mainly to be maturer couples and groups.

Beer; tap stuff with a decent Banks's MILD, bitter and Ringwood Showman's Tipple on handpull, there was also the untried Pedigree and Burton Bitter.

This is a decent pub, along with the Navigation and well worth a visit. It is in the GBG 2010.
