Welcome to The Canal and Riverside Pub Guide
In this comprehensive guide to waterway pubs, you will find:
- Pubs that are canal or riverside or a short walk within the waterway corridor
- Pubs on waterway cruising rings
- Facilities at each pub including whether serving Real Ale, food and if they welcome your dog !
- Many pubs included that are not shown in other guides
- A developing photo reference of every pub on the waterways
What, another pub guide ? Yes, but this one is different
With other pub guides, lots of research is carried out, compiled and then a book crammed full of information is published which, very soon after completion, decays to become out of date.
This guide is only shown on the Internet so has the ability for the entries to be updated and available very quickly. We would have loved to give listings of all the beers served in every pub, maintained details of the food menus available but, as can be appreciated, this would be difficult to maintain the accuracy of information. We do rely on feedback from our users, as well as our own continuing research, which does allow us to keep the entries up to date.
The guide shows pubs along the navigable canals and rivers in England and Wales. Where these go through large towns, we have shown ones that we have visited or know about although there will be many others. Photographs have also been added to many entries
Our guide includes more and many pubs that are not shown in other waterway pub guides (Nicholson’s, Pearson’s, Heron Maps, Waterways World Guides - which are no longer updated) as we search out all such places within the waterway corridor. If you know of any more, please provide feedback and we will happily include them for the benefit of all in The Canal and Riverside Pub Guide
We will be pleased to provide a link to any canal or riverside pub which is alongside a navigable waterway free of charge.
Please e-mail us with the details.
To ensure the pub information shown is as up to date as possible, we encourage feedback so we can update the pub entries to reflect what happening on the ground rather than becoming a decaying and out of date information source.
The guide is compiled entirely as a hobby to capture all the pubs near to navigations for personal use and promote the visiting of pubs by others. All costs are born by the owner and there is no intention to make any money from the activity. Yes there are some costs which we may try to recover in the future by taking limited advertising within the industry
