Despite being right on the Grand Union, the Charles Wells signage has always put me off visiting the Two Boats.
This changed after a warm and gruelling day lock working when the pub was right at journey's end and a head around the door revealed some drinkable beer, friendly governor and attractive barmaids.
The crew ensconced themselves to the left in the lounge area, which was very comfortable and where one or two were eating what looked like decent pub grub meals, and set about re-hydrating.
Beers on were Bombardier, Black Sheep, Sharps Atlantic and North Cotswold Shagweaver with both the Atlantic and Shagweaver being deeply and thoroughly sampled with great satisfaction.
Better than expected and worth a look to see what's on as a guest.

Excellent canalside pub as described by BF below, but with the helpful addition of an outside door to loos. Marston's acquisition of CW's brewing side seems well under way, with Bank's umbrellas outside. That said the guest beer inside was Robinsons Pint of Thrones, which was technically fine if not to my taste. It's open all day and on a Monday too. which is becoming a rarity around here. Of the two pubs here this one has the edge and is a lovely spot for an hour in the summer sunshine. Points however reduced for poor beer selection.

A canalside building ,probably built at the same time as the canal with all front windows giving a great view of the boating traffic,there are also many benches placed alongside the towpath and moorings for boats.There are two rooms with a public bar to the right which has a small counter,pine furnishings,a darts board with a good throw,a Sky Sports flatscreen,fruit machines and a few tables and stools.To the left is more of a lounge with several dining tables,a stone fireplace,carpeted at the rear with a lot of canal ephemera around the walls.The wooden clad bar here is also quite small but this room is just as popular with the local drinkers as the public bar and if you want to use the loo you have to go via the public bar so there is a lot of human traffic inside the pub.The atmosphere was charming and the low ceilings show the buildings age.Dogs and children welcome while muzak is played at a sensible volume.
There is a quiz night and food every session from a pub grub style menu with daily specials and steaks.A bottle of pickled eggs on the bar enhances the authentic boozer feel.
The Charles Wells branding has always put me off in the past as I cant stand their hop light beer,Bombardier and Young Bitter on my visit.However there are guest ales ,on my trip I was never going to order the Brain's Reverend James but St Austell Proper Job was sufficient to stop me walking out and it was in fine nick (£3.60)
As long as there is a decent guest ale this pub is worth a visit,it's lively ,authentic and popular with locals and boaters alike.
