Another nice looking pub along the quayside, unfortunately another Hall and Woodhouse pub with predictable beer, Tanglefoot, Badger Best and Fursty Ferret, the latter being of average quality. Beer choice aside its a decent pub.

This historic quayside pub is currently owned by Hall and Woodhouse. Despite its location it has managed to avoid becoming too commercialised. As described below, the predominant theme is wood in a vain attempt to make it feel like the inside of a boat. Wooden ceiling, walls, floor and, with the exception of the brick fireplace, wooden décor. There are several nautical themed pictures plus other bric-a-brac around. Reasonable food and an industrial coffee machine make it a comfortable place to spend time, although the beer quality lets it down a bit – three ales on, I had the First Call which wasn't on peak form. I would be happy to include in a crawl or hide away here for an afternoon.

A decent and traditional quayside pub with some outdoor seating taking in the views and sunshine. A long boarded room with the bar along one side, this winds around and rises up a ramp to another rear section. Wood panelling, some exposed brickwork, wood boarded ceilings, seating is generally regular issue apart from a pair of large barrel tables. Some areas are semi divided booth style. Décor has ship's lamps and the usual old B&W photos, Hall and Woodhouse beers, First Call, Hopeful Hop and Tanglefoot repeated across the two pairs of three handpumps. I'm not massively keen on H&W beers but I liked the pub and ambience and ate a decent enough steak here for dinner. Friendly and efficient service.
