12:45 Couple on the bank but just one other in the bar. Lot smarter than I remember the place from my last visit.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wentworth - Blueberry Stout4.50ExcellentVery fruity. I would describe it as a porter as it was a bit thin to be a stout.

A mid-evening meet up with Dave K, who lives just around the corner. Pub busy, although most are in the garden on dry land, rather than aboard ship.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Abbeydale - Beer Works Dr Morton's Moon block Factor #94.10GoodA pretty decent, hoppy, golden pint.
Dunscar Bridge - Cask No. 404.00AcceptableA dry-hopped Pilsner in rather flat condition. Not sure about this.

Website.

The pub is found in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, PE1 1FP.

Take a permanently moored old Dutch barge on the River Nene, kit it out with a below deck bar run and stocked by one of the top breweries in the UK, add a touch of live music, regular events and festivals and finish it off with a fine-quality oriental restaurant on the top deck. Inspired - and quite probably the best thing about Peterborough. 12 cask ales always on (more during festivals).

We have visited this pub 15 times, seen 65 different beers and tried 29 of them.
