Large canalside pub.

All a bit dark and oppressive in-side. Gorgeous day and the fire was blazing.

Outside is a huge patio area and the place to be on a nice afternoon.

Surprised at the choice of ales on - four on my visit. Went for a decent pint of TT Landlord.

Not as good as it could be given the amazing location along a particularly gorgeous stretch of the Grand Union Canal. Mind you, the dinosaur sign and scattered ammonites provide a nice 'Lyme Regis' theme and it is a place of pleasing nooks and crannies. Ales are in abundance although the choice is unimaginative - Hook Norton's Lion did go down well.

Whilst staying in the area we visited a number of pubs to look at the menus and clientele as in the past during our travels we have been disappointed with the food and surroundings of places we have booked despite researching them on the internet and being told that they rated highly. Unfortunately businesses can go downhill very quickly and lots of reviews are very old.
We visited the Blue Lias on Tuesday 9th August 2012. The outside of the pub, set on the side of the Grand Union Canal is a picture postcard setting. Bedecked in a wondefull display of well tended window boxes, hanging baskets and border displays it makes a lovely place to sit and while a way a few hours over a beer and watch life on the canal pass you by. I had a pint of very well kept Bombadier bitter. My wife ordered a soda with ice at which point the barmaid made it clear that they charged the same for soda water as for lemonade as it came from a bottle not tap. This is most unusual as most pubs do not charge for soda water and at 1.49 was little expensive considering it came from and already opened Schweppes bottle and was flat.
The menu looked reasonably priced with sandwiches and baguettes priced at 4.50 and main meals around the 9 mark we earmarked it for another visit with some friends later in the week simply because of the beautiful surroundings.

Just got back from a lovely meal here. Beer wise not imaginative but still had adnams broadside, Wadsworth 6x, Abbott ale and hooky best. Food was super not large menu but food well presented my steak medium rare was perfectly cooked. My wife had a chili which she liked so much said 'was almost as good as mine' others in the group has chicken curry and gammon and said were excellent. We had a Chilean red merlot with our meals which was not expensive and a really good choice. This place is run by someone who cares.

Arrived just before noon and moored up outside this large pub on the hottest October Sunday since "records began". Tens of people sitting outside waiting to be let in! 12:00 opening no exception! They were a party booked into the pub's separate function room, so when they did open up it was something of a crush. 6 real ale pumps, but only 2 beers on. Sat outside by the canal, but decided against a second as the queue for the bar snaked nearly back to the toilets .

This is a large and well-appointed pub, but on the day we visited ,it was completely disorganised.
