Bit loud, but OK, better than the current average. Hardy & Hanson Rockin Rudolph was in good form yesterday (Blue Bell not open - seems a common trend)

A bit naff but deserves a score higher than 3.7/10
I was here on Saturday lunch and evening as Blue Bell closed.
Only one hand pump which was serving Wells Bombadere @2.66 a pint.

The Blue Bell doesnt open at lunchtime Mon-Thur so we popped in the Canal Tavern after working up Heartbreak Hill.There was a pump clip for Brakespear Honey Bee but the landlord explained that the barrel hadnt settled which was honest enough.Had a swift Stella instead but no reason to stay any longer.No sign of lunchtime food and the pub was very quiet.Publican missing a trick at lunchtime when a lot of boats pass by ,and with the Blue Bell not open.Pub seemed clean and no problem with locals.

Overshadowed by its more prolific neighbour the Blue Bell, this pub can boast a pleasant location but unfortunately does not make the most of it. It's across the lock system from the Blue Bell, which involves crossing two channels, and canal enthusiasts will like the outside seat which gives you a view of the workings. Inside, 2 unremarkable, large rooms are served by a central island bar, and one has a pool table. The only real ale available on my visit was Abbot Ale, which I didn't try as wasn't too sure. The service was fine but what really lets this pub down is the clientele. A group of drunken youths were busy outside abusing anyone who dared to pass by or enter the pub, which is hardly endearing. Inside more scallies were playing pool but they seemed OK. This is a pub with potential but I can't say I'd relish a return visit at the moment. Might have been a one off but I don't know. Generally a decent pub let down by the people in it.
