Review of Narrow Boat Inn

Reviewed 24 August 2014

Last week my family consisting of nine people and one dog booked a table for the evening meal. We were greeted by Martin who was very friendly and helpful. The choices available were quite sufficient for our needs. Once ordered the food came quickly, it was hot, tasty and enjoyed by all of us. The sweet menu was also lovely. Upon finishing our meal Martin came and had a long chat with us and also his Dad, great stories. We laughed all the way back to our narrowboat having thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Family business, nothing too much trouble. We enjoyed it so much we revisited the pub on our way back up the canal towards the end of our holiday. A big thank you to Martin, his Dad and their staff.
From The family from Birmingham.

We had problems with our boat so stopped at the pub always a good place to break down , to enable an engineer to come out to us the guy in charge ( Martin )found us some fresh milk from the kitchens so my wife could have her cup of tea next morning we ate in the pub a couple of times while waiting for the spare parts they let us moor on their hire boat moorings with electric and water nothing was too much trouble .
We will go back again next time we visit the canal

We visited this pub while passing on a canal boat holiday on the Llangollen canal. Having eaten at another establishment further up the canal the night before, we thought it would be good to sound this one out too. As with other pubs, strangely they don't serve food until 1800hrs. but we decided to visit and peruse the menu anyway. At around 1715hrs we, a party of four went in and ordered drinks, we were not greeted at all by the guy behind the bar and almost made to feel unwelcome. Being a fan of real ale we asked what was on offer, only to be told of one ale that could not be classed as a 'real ale', the other taps had been covered with a tea towel, indicating that they were not on at that time. In this case we opted for a cider instead and proceeded to sit outside. On looking at the menu, it appeared to consist of basic 'pub grub' so we decided to revisit the same pub we had been to the night before. Before leaving, we went back into the pub to use their facilities only to find the barstaff had changed and the real ales were uncovered and seeming 'back on'?? Needless to say we won't be in a hurry to revisit, the place lacked atmosphere to some degree.

They did everyting they could to make us welcome, sorted out moorings and catered for the disabled members of our group.

Called today at lunchtime with my family and we had a lovely meal. There was a good choice of food both main and light bites and sweets. The food was quickly served and was hot and nicely cooked and reasonably priced. The landlord was very pleasant and had a nice sense of humour. The pub is situated alongside the Shropshire Union canal and it was lovely to see the narrow boats floating by..We will certainly be returning.

Thank solzy
