Nice canal side pub which has been well described below. A lot of tables reserved in the lounge / conservatory which shows the place is popular. Nice beer garden right by the canal for better weather.
A decent choice of beers with Courage best bitter, Hobgoblin, 61 Deep, Ringwood Old Thumper, Brakspear Gravity and Wainwright Altitude. I went for the latter which was fine. A decent pub and glad I called in.

Enjoyed our visit to this 2014 Good Beer Guide pub on Tuesday. There were a few beers available from Marston's brewery and we chose Jennings Knight Porter and Ringwood Boondoggle. Before leaving we also had the Jennings Cumberland which I found to be the best one on the day. The pub has been well described below, and we found it to be a friendly place to pop into for a drink.

Situated along side the Coventry Canal,as you enter this Marston's tied house you get the impression it is mainly an eatery.Indeed the lounge on two levels,each with their own bar access,is full of dining tables and a conservatory extension leading to a sizeable beer garden.However if you walk through the lounge to the loos you will discover the bar,which is completely seperate with it's own counter and is the haunt of the regulars.It's an L shaped room with a darts board,fireplace,flatscreen(off),wooden furniture and lots of banter,a good place to sink pints.There is a door giving access to a small canalside terrace,mainly for smokers and this would be another way into the bar from the garden,or the pub moorings.
The pub has been elevated to the 2014 GBG,and rightly so on the basis of my Jennings Cockerhoop,£2.84.The other options were Pedigree,Oxford Gold and seasonal Howling Wolf.Four handpumps in the lounge were badged up with "available soon" clips for four more ales,several seasonal specials but I took this display as indicative of what might me on in the next fortnight,rather than next session.
The food is from a standard menu ,and on my midweek evening trip most folk in the lounge were also just drinking.Quiz night on Tuesdays.
I enjoyed my visit ,this is probably the best canalside pub for miles around and it ticks many of the right boxes.I will pay another visit when next in Amington.
