The quality of food was good however the portion sizes here are ridiculously small and way too overpriced to see more plate than food. Not the kind of dining experience I like when I'm left with a 3 figure bill at the end. A bit...More

Visiting friends on their narrow boat, moored right outside! The pub had a lovely, friendly feel about it, with a beautiful log fire going on a cold windy day, felt very welcoming. 4 of us had the 3 course Sunday roast, prawn cocktail, baked mushroom...More

We were beginning to despair. It was only our second trip in a narrow boat but so far every pub we have stopped at has disappointed. Thank you we had a great evening with delicious food.

The Navigation Inn is an 18th Century canalside inn serving home made food using seasonal and ethically sourced ingredients. We offer superb real ales, and a great selection of wines and other drinks. Whether you want to enjoy a meal or just want to stop for a drink or three our dining room and bars offer relaxed and characterful spaces. We also have a canalside patio where you can enjoy al fresco dining and drinking. Dogs and children are also welcome! Our food is home made and the quality of the ingredients we use is particularly important to us. All raw meat products supplied by our catering butcher are fully traceable in origin and we insist that he sources meat that conforms to our welfare standards. Many products such as lamb, pork (including sausages and bacon) and eggs are purchased from local farms where we deal directly with the producer. All of our meat is ethically produced and wherever possible free range. (Eggs, chicken and pork are 100% free range) We will always try to buy locally and support the farming community who we value so much. We use Fish Fight guidelines to ensure that seafood is sourced from sustainable fisheries. Our menus are created using these criteria and with a firm eye on the seasonality of the ingredients. Brent and Mark have owned The Navigation for nearly 11 years and continue to strive to offer you a relaxed visit with excellent service, food and drink. They are very ably supported by Head Chef Jack who has been running the kitchen for 5 years and by Sous Chef Craig. In addition our waiters, waitresses, cleaner and kitchen assistants are all here to enhance your visit. Your security is overseen by the tireless (and occasionally vocal) presence of Belle and Sebastienne, our German Shepherds.
