The information shown is by individual canal that we gathered over the years when walking, boating or visiting the area. Entries show Postcodes so finding pubs by car using a Satellite Navigation Tool (such as with a Tom Tom) can be achieved by entering the Postcode for directions.


The listing includes the nearest bridge/place to the canal, pub address, telephone number, any website, link to a map and the facilities available at the location.


We would have liked to have shown the types of beer offered by each canalside pub, however, keeping this information up to date across the country, particularly within free trade houses, would be difficult to maintain. We also show the brewery/owning business or whether a Free House where known.
