We moored our boat nearby and the peace and quiet was shattered by outdoor live "music". We spoke to many people who had come for a quiet drink but decided not to stay as the noise was intolerable. Is it really necessary to spoil such a tranquil setting with this loud "entertainment"?
Had lunch the following day - some meals better than others. I suggest a revamp of the plough mans which was very poor - it certainly wouldn't fill a ploughman - hardly any cheese and a couple of thin slices of white bread.

Very pleasant public house at a very good location beside the Grand Union canal. On our visit we sat outside and had a nice acceptable meal served by pleasant and polite staff. Not very busy on our visit on a weekday lunchtime. Very pleasant walking to be had along the canal and nearby watermeadows

This pub in located in a lovely secluded spot off the main road and next to the canal. It has many charming features but unfortunately a very boring menu and sloppy bar service. We had fish and chips and a burger both of which were horrible and over cooked. Service was slow and the staff somewhat cold though not rude. Could be really lovely if the whole place was given the once over with a duster and a new inspiring chef was employed and a 21st century menu was implemented.

The Globe Inn has lots of tables outside, taking advantage of its canalside location. There is a basic menu, with ordinary but good food. There are different specials/offers on at different times during the week.

On our first visit, the service was slow (I think they had forgotten about us!). However they were extremely busy as it was a hot, summers evening, and the waiter was apologetic when we eventually got our food. The service was a little faster on our second visit.

We had two nice meals whilst watching the boats and interesting cars passing by!

We will visit again when we are in the area.

Best pub food I have ever had. Greeted by a welcoming chef as we arrived. Beautiful surroundings with outside area for the kids to run around.
