A Victorian pub set by the Shropshire Union Canal in a very isolated rural location. It has two small rooms – a bar with old, high-backed settles on the right and a lounge on the left which is a tribute to 1950s formica. The only cask beer available is Wadworth’s 6X, served from a handpump but topped up from a jug. The pub is, not surprisingly, packed with canal memorabilia. It has a spacious beer garden with plenty of seating and comes into its own on sunny summer weekend lunchtimes. Opening hours in winter may be limited.
