The Boat has a reputation as being a traditional cask ale and food outlet which also shows major sporting events on TV. The Pub is situated canal side in the lovely village of Penkridge, the site has a steady day trade with a fantastic outside space to take advantage of. During the Summer months, there are numerous long boats driving up and down the canal, looking for somewhere for lunch, dinner and drinks!
