A super canalside pub which remains as described by PSM below, with the addition of a tent covering the terrace for punters not keen on being indoors. It was very quiet on a dank midweek afternoon and we were ushered inside after details entered on an iPad. Beer is mainstream but the Landlord was spot on. Covid regs obeyed to the letter and we felt safe on our first venture inside a pub since March. Cov is a bit of a hotspot and some pubs have been given a rollocking, I doubt that will happen here.

Well worth a trip out, and as Steve says, a handy pit stop for travellers on the nearby M6, but be aware that it gets very busy at peak times, and walk-ins my be disappointed.

We diverted here from the M6 for a lunchtime stop on our way to Shrewsbury and it did not disappoint. Unchanged from Pubsignman’s review some seven years ago this is a splendid pub.
We managed to get a table in the first room on the bar side, mainly because most other people were in the well appointed restaurant room to the left which was full. But for a couple of sandwiches we preferred the bar side anyway which has true pub character compared to the separate dining room.
Four ales on in the shape of Bass, GK Abbott, Sharps Sunset Red and Arkells Big Hit.
I went for the Bass first and a fine pint it was.
Good knowledgeable and friendly service levels were experienced and when I returned to the bar and asked the guvnor what the Sunset Red was like, the reply was that he found it disappointingly thin and provided a taster. He was absolutely right so I went for the Big Hit instead.
This plus a couple of top notch thick cut sandwiches made this a very pleasant journey stopover and i whole heartily recommend the Greyhound if you find yourself in the area.

Perfect pub - found at the end of the Coventry Canal Art Trail.

Former canal cottages knocked together. Inside - packed solid - difficult to move around and get to the bar and toilet. Plenty of staff on, so queue's not too bad.
Low ceiling with plenty of pub paraphernalia. Outdoor seating available to admire the busy canal junction with plenty of architecture.

Beerise, I saw Black Sheep and went for that. Served in a Bass Glass, so may have missed that. Excellent pint - in GBG 2019 - and the food was even better.

Excellent experience.
