About the Pub

A Greene King pub on the side of the Bridgewater Canal in the center of Sale & directly opposite Sale Metrolink Station.

The pub can be directly accessed from the canal tow path or entered from the road bridge which spans both the canal and tram tracks. The entrance from the road takes you through a small portico but two flights of stairs take you into the split level body of the pub. The pub is deceptively large with two raised seating areas and plentiful seating on the ground floor. There is also extensive seating outside on the canal side including a covered pontoon - unusually outside seating is segregated into smoking and non smoking areas.

There is a car park to the rear of the pub which is accessed from Britannia Road which runs between the canal and tram tracks.

Although the pub looks as old as the canal itself in fact it was built in 1996 for Watling Street Inns Pubs Co. It is now owned by Greene King.

For such a large pub, the bar is relatively small but does feature a range of handpumps. The range is usually dominated by beers from the various "brands" brewed by Greene King in Bury St Edmunds but Thwaites Wainwright is also permanent and typically there will be one or two guests from other breweries.

There is live music on a Thursday. Food is served
