I visited this place a couple of weeks ago while on holiday and have to say that this place really has fallen through the floor since the most recent reviews.

When I arrived, I walked into one of the bars, only to be rudley told by the Landlord that this bar was closed (no notice on the door, only a table which had been placed haphazardly to block the entrance from the other side). I then went into the bar that was open. There were only 2 other patrons there. I went up to the bar but the landlord had disappeared so I waited a few minutes. I then set up my laptop to surf the internet and the Landlord reappeared with the question "do you want a drink?" asked in a similar rude fashion.

I ordered a drink, drank it, surfed the internet and then went back to the boat, deciding that I would not be eating there.

I did find out subsequently that the landlord is new but was previously said to have come from a pub in the red light district of Bradford (although I do not know if that is true or not). Either way he has a lot to learn about simply being a landlord. He did not make me feel welcome in any way, the atmosphere is miserable and the plant pots on the outside of his pub had flowers in them that were long dead and dried up. There was also a banner advertising Christmas booking for 2014 (which just about says it all really).

As you may have guessed, this pub is a dump and should be avoided. I don't know what the other pubs in Gnosall are like but I am sure they are a darn sight better than this one.

Horrifyingly average. Food is expensive for what you get. Been once but won't be going again.

This pub has been named as one of the best on the canal network (and it's worth seeking out if you're not on the cut).

The food is excellent (especially the mixed grill). The book shop in the basement is worth a look too.
