About the Pub

A traditional single roomed pub that takes its name from a canal basin that was once adjacent. The walls are decorated with old pictures of the town and a map of the old Melton - Oakham canal whose workers this establishment once served. The pub is always busy with mature drinkers and the local darts teams who enjoy good conversation with their pint. A 'range' type open fire gives plenty of warmth and adds to the atmosphere in Winter. Branch pub of the year 2012 and 2013.
