Great pub, great staff, plenty of really good beers. We did not eat there as we had a Christmas party to go to but the food looked very good! It was a Saturday afternoon visit and it was busy but nice friendly atmosphere. Can not complain about anything and we will return again when we are next in Nottingham.

If you are thinking of getting married. But don't want to spend a lot of money and still have a beautiful venue then this is the perfect choice! Me and my partner got married at the Council House and then came straight to The Canalhouse afterwards for our Reception. It was the one of the best days of our lives!... More

We had been to visit our friends Tarquin and Samantha in Lincolnshire and arranged to meet our other friends Arbuthnot and Flora , who live in the posh part of Lincoln, in Nottingham. This pub was suggested by someone on the trip advisor forum and I'm glad they did. We'd parked at the racecourse park and ride and had intended... More

Love pubs, love canals - this one's a winner for me. Based in an old BWB warehouse this place has a lot of character and yes, there is an arm of the canal extending into the pub with a narrow boat (not a barge!) moored there. Great selection of beers, good reasonably priced food, what's not to like? Well actually... More

Met friends here for a quick lunch and was pleasantly surprised! Have been in a few times before for drinks, however this was the first time I've eaten here and I'll definitely be back. I had the nachos with pulled pork and it was amazing! Enough salsa, guacamole & sour cream for a decent portion of nachos and the pulled... More

The word that fell out my mouth as I entered! An old canal restoration house converted to a pub. Real canal boat in the middle of it. Fantastic selection of world beers and real ales. We didn't eat but food selection also looked hearty. The perfect place to while away several hours whilst sampling excellent beer. Wonderful outside area too... More
