About the Pub

The closing time in the evening can be variable, and the pub may close very early outside the summer period.

The larger of the two pubs situated at the bottom of the famous flight of ten Foxton locks. Essentially a food-orientated establishment consisting of one large subdivided room adjoined with an extensive outside covered decked terrace overlooking the waterway and passing boats. The pub also has a function venue in an adjacent detached building known as the Old Boat House.

Historic Interest

This was originally the offices of the canal company, and predates the building of Foxton Locks (pre-1814). For many years it operated as the original 'Bridge 61', a popular and unpretentious free house. Closed when the lease expired in about 2002; then reopened after substantial rebuilding, as a joint venture by Scottish & Newcastle Breweries and British Waterways in summer 2005.
