Enjoyed Gundog Jack Spaniels and Titanic Plum Porter in this popular bar which we visited while on a CAMRA trip in the area. Different drinking and eating areas inside, and will be popular with walkers .

The Wharf is a GBG pub, with garden area, situated at the end of the Welford Arm. This was opened in 1814 and as the pub was formerly called the George Inn, it would suggest a compatible date. The Arm fed the limekilns that once stood behind the pub. The pub itself is part of a long row of buildings, but the frontage of the pub has been rendered in white and given a crenelated look, with a projecting full-hight porch. The interior has a couple of rooms, but the small 'Canal Room' was closed and seemed to be filled with stuff. The main room is part-partitioned by a fireplace feature. The back part is the dining area, with the front part acting as the bar/lounge. We didn't eat so cant comment on that. There was no TV and there was no music. The decor was cream and undressed brick. The walls had varios pictures and they do have music nights (Jazz was the one advertised). The service was fine and the clientele seemed to be local - although boats were at the wharf. Beer; usual stuff with five handpuls that included: Pedigree, St Austell's Proper Job, Newby Wyke Red Squirrel and a class Potbelly Beijing Black. A great pub and definitely one to visit - would love to return

It's a proper boozer The Wharf and is used and prized by locals, boaters and passing visitors alike.
Although the menu is standard pub grub, there are specials listed which tend to be more adventurous and included crab salad and rabbit pie on our visit. Both very good. There is a large restaurant area which you need to walk through the bar to get to but don't be deceived into thinking this place is all about the food.
Yes the food is good and there's a dedicated area for eating but the life of the pub is in the bar, which is open all day and where you will always find a friendly soul or two for a chat. On busier evenings discussion easily becomes general. A proper village pub.
On our visit there were 5 beers on with a reversed Pedigree pump clip on the last handpump. Pedigree is usually available but on our visit beers were: Potbelly Beijing Black, Bass, TT Landlord, Oakham Inferno and Slaters Queen Bee. I tried most of these and all were good and in excellent nick.
Well worth a visit for a decent pint, something to eat or a gentle bit of banter.
