Stopped in for lunch and very nice it was too! Restaurant area was full of diners on a Friday lunchtime and a few drinkers established in the bar already.

What a cracking pub! 2 hours walk along the Coventry canal all seemed worth it once I arrived. Absolutely full on New Year's day and it was a squeeze getting to the bar. Sat out the front and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Will return for one of their beer festivals (although I'll probably get a cab...).
Riverhead - Sleigh Hammer6.00ExcellentFantastic condition, perfect cheeky little livener for New Years Day. Strongly hopped IPA, I liked it.
Marston's - Bass4.40Not Tried

It is a lovely spring day and the pub is crowded. A Spring Beer Festival is in progress, with 25 beers over five days. I find many familiar faces here, as this is the pub of choice before football at Coventry City; the stadium being just 25 minutes walk away along the canal towpath.
Acorn - Tarnlife4.50ExcellentA classic in-your-face, straw-coloured, Yorkshire pale ale – enhanced by excellent Cascade and Centennial hops. I did not see a need to try any of the other beers on sale.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Coventry, West Midlands, CV6 6DF.

Although technically in Coventry, this pub is a good five or six miles from the city centre and only inches away from being in Warwickshire – if it stood on the other side of the canal, it would be in Bedworth. Owned by the Canal & River Trust, the pub stands at the junction of the Coventry and Oxford canals and it is both a scenic and a formerly-industrial spot – the two not being mutually exclusive. Once a small pub, it has expanded into two neighbouring terraced cottages since originally being built in the 1830s. There are many outside tables at the front and a large garden to the rear, served by its own ‘Whippet’ bar.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 12 different beers and tried 3 of them.
