The pub is found in Harefield, Greater London, UB9 6PD.

Formerly the Horse & Barge relaunched with new name in April 2015. On the Grand Union Canal opposite Harefield Marina. Large L shaped bar with sofas and pommel horses as well as more traditional seating. Sizeable separate restaurant area and canalside garden. A tandem supports the washbasins in the gents. Quirky. Period of closure then reopened in May 2019 selling one real ale.

We have visited this pub once, seen 3 different beers and tried them all.
