A large traditional and impressive looking deatched Banks's pub in white painted brick mainly, that sits next to the Shropshire Union Canal. It has a patio area and outside tables by the canal, where boats are often moored up. large car-park.

The interior is open plan and i just saw the one room. It is in green, red, white and wood panel, with wood beams and partitions divide the food, dart and drinking areas. I have not eaten here, so can't comment on the food. There is a lot of canal photos and memorabilia on the walls and dotted around the pub, plus a few other bits and pieces - a clay pipe collection by where i sat for instance. There was a nice brick fireplace as a feature at the one end of the pub. The service i recieved was friendly, the clientele was not big, but mixed and clearly some were from the boats moored up outside. The background music was varied and at a decent level.

Beer; tap stuff, with Banks's MILD and bitter on handpull, as well as two ales; Jennings Cocker Hoop and Pedigree Diamond. The MILD was fine.

I will be returning again, especially when i can sit outside when it isnt p***ing down, like it was on both my previous visits. I like it here.
