Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Canal House

The former James Brindley has finally - after what seems like several decades - reopened, so after my worst ever pub experience here in the 1980s (which is another story) I was pleased to revisit since it occupies a prime position by the Gas Street Canal Basin. The downside is that no draught real ale is offered, so it's either something keg (e.g. the Budweiser 'tankove pivo' £5.50) or one of the bottled offerings from the fridges. Apart from that, the interior has been completely refurbished in a quasi-retro style which I suppose is quite well done (but certainly not my personal preference).
