Angel Inn, Stourport on Severn

Visited this pub by boat, spending several happy lunch times and early or late evenings there. My dog played happily with the pub dog and the beer was good. Visited again this lunchtime (Tuesday) and found that the landlady was away. A friend wanted to visit the boat, but couldn't drink as he was driving. As I purchased my pint, I asked if he could use the car park for a couple of hours. I was told that if he wasn't using the pub, then definitely not. I explained that I would be patronising the pub and it would be no different to me leaving my car there. I didn't see the difference personally, especially as there was only one car in the car park. The customer liaison skills of the barmaid were sadly lacking and I will be going to the Hollybush instead or drinking my own beer on the boat where I can still watch the river.

The Fish And Eels, Hoddesdon

Still called yesterday lunch time, Sunday 17th June 2012, despite having read the reviews as we were passing on the river and the sun was out. The patio was very pleasant with a guitarist playing. Service was reasonably quick. We had snacks which were reasonable both in quality and price. My wife chose an Italian Chardonny at 3.30 for a 175cl and I chose Doombar at 3.15. It was that good I had another four pints (no breathaliser on a boat). Last visited six years ago and enjoyed if just as much this time, but both times we sat on the patio. I think that the management has changed since the last reviews.

The Grand Junction Arms, Bulbourne

I agree with Nick22. Went in to the Grand Junction for a drink latish Monday evening after a long days boating. I thought that as usual I could take my dog in with me. Apparently dogs are no longer allowed. A deep disappointment but it saved me a lot of money. In future I will stop at Berkhampstead or travel down the locks to pubs where my dog and myself are welcome. As the pub was empty when I went in, I would have thought any custom would have been welcome. I know the rules regarding dogs in pubs and realise that at the end of the day it is discretionary, but refusal is in my opinion a very short sighted view for a country pub relying an passing trade. I didn't realise boaters were also disliked.
Not like the old Grand Junction.
