This place is temporarily closed due to a fire. It will reopen when repairs are complete. Our canalside ...More location is a winner in the sunshine - sit back and relax with a long, cool drink as you watch the narrowboats float quietly by. And if the weather's not quite so pleasant, we've got loads of room inside with a choice of comfy sofas or dining chairs and tables.With great value food made on-site from locally sourced ingredients, our menu has something for everyone and the quality of our food is superior.Our bar has four beers on hand pump and we've got a great selection of lagers, cider, wines and soft drinks.And there's no rush to drive home after an evening at The Boatyard - why not stay in one of our six recently decorated and well appointed rooms.Then wake up to a hearty breakfast and grab a latte in our coffee shop before leaving.

Not very dog friendly. We got severely told off for allowing our black lab into the room for a few minutes.

I think what Lauren is attempting to say is, dogs are only allowed in the coffee shop. I only know this because I rang and asked.
