They've really gone to town: metal barriers, one way systems, outside bar, plastic glasses, food served outside in styrofoam boxes, lots of sanitiser, a signing-in app. Lots of signs too, perhaps too many as I missed the outside bar for following arrows, went in the pub, was sent out the other end to join another one-way system.

The outdoor seating is copious, and lovely on the canal bank, though due to blusterous weather we sat under the gazebo with the two other customers on a midweek afternoon. Sadly just Abbot on, the Landlord promptly went off when I ordered it, so stuck to eurofizz.

You're more likely to choke on a peanut than catch anything nasty here.

As described below, a huge Greene King dining pub aimed squarely at the Birmingham Sunday-Lunch-With-The-In-Laws classes, as the extensive car park foretells before you set foot inside. Think high-end Chef and Brewer, though this one is leased to a (sigh) facetiously named management company. Most of it is comfortably olde-worlde pubby, and it's fine to have a drink if you avoid meal times. Though if it's beer you're after you might be disappointed, just IPA and Abbott when we called, so I fell back on eurofizz. And there's plenty of space outside for fine days, probably the best place if you want to avoid the weekend in-laws and weekday final salary types.

An impressive historical pub nicely situated on the Stratford canal with an extensive garden.
The inside has been subject to a comprehensive but largely sympathetic refurbishment with many original features remaining. These include ceiling beams and old fireplaces one with an original bread oven.
The pub wraps around a central bar and is subtly divided into different areas so it doesn't feel open plan.
Menus are on every table offering pub grub and there's a specials board with a more adventurous selection. Although it still feels very much like a pub, food is important here.
Beers on we're GK IPA and Abbot, a decent Timothy Taylor Landlord and Nethergate Suffolk County.
A nice spot to stop for a pint or some lunch.

A fine old building parts of which date to the 13th century and predating the Stratford on Avon Canal which runs below the beer garden.It's famous as the origin of Fleur de Lys pies,these days mass produced elsewhere but a nod to history means you get pies from the standard pub grub menu.
The best part of the pub is to the right,a sunked drinking area with banquettes,an unused dart board and a flatscreen (off) above a wood burner.These are about the only tables not numbered,the rest of the pub is mainly for diners with most mains around £11 including the daily specials.
The interior winds around a brick faced L shaped bar ,with wooden dining chairs and some less attractive pine furniture to the left.The low beams remind customers of the age ,but the meanigless muzak mark it out as a chain country diner.
There are two sets of handpumps so walk around to see the full range which on my visit meant GK IPA,Abbott ,Slaters Worcester Sourcerer and West Berks Dr Hexter's Healer,the latter two in good condition.
Sadly the focus on food has stripped the pub of ambiance despite the original interior but a decent ale offering made it a worthwhile stop after working the many locks in the area.There is an Anthony Gormley sculpture at the nearby lock,but its a temporary installation.
