This has become a regular stopping point. On the canal with the bridge over the dock inside it’s a conversation piece. Its chief attraction apart from proximity is the combination of usually 8-10 craft and 6-8 cask ales. The latter predominantly Castle Rock so often I try the craft. Food is good value and although staff are young and frequently changing they’re usually attentive. Tables for food and interior dock can make it crowded quite quickly and the gents in two flights up which seems steep by the end of the evening. But overall one of the best in Nottingham and close to the station.

Interesting venue, with canal barge inside. Bar looks like a Walkabout clone, loud pop punk music playin. Very busy, often difficult to get to the bar. Very mixed crowd, not many beer drinkers. Selection reasonable but check the bottle dates!

We (me and Dad) visited The Canalhouse, Saturday 9th April 2016. So within the space of a 5 minutes stroll we visit our least favourite pub of the day the bland, identikit JDW called Joseph Else to this, The Canalhouse, the total opposite, admittedly it’s an equally large affair but it’s canalside location and amazing interior are unlike any pub I have ever been to, this exudes atmosphere.

I have to say this pub must be totally unique, two canal boats are moored up inside this pub (yes inside) a small metal humpback bridge takes you over and across to the bar side. loads of original features exist with large sturdy iron supports, rivets everywhere, plenty of wood and all within an impressive solid and sturdy brickwork building. A great choice of seating with plenty of comfy sofa options to also choose from. With the canal basin extending inside, this must be a unique pub.

The beer choice was fantastic, a large bank of keg and cask offerings with Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Tropical, Torpedo, Gloucester Chinook, Heavy Industry Belgian Pale, Black Isle Hibernator, Mad Hatter Hare of Darkness and as you would expect from the landlords of this place there is also a good selection of Castle Rock beers on cask. I only noticed after we’d taken our beers back to the table that we could have had 1/3 measures. Btw the bottled beer selection was equally impressive with a bank of chillers behind the bar displaying a huge choice of beers from the likes of Beavertown, Sierra Nevada, Stone, Founders, Wild etc and note many of the choices were not the usual suspects.

I loved it here, the staff were friendly, knowledgeable the prices were very reasonable, actually on that particular point I also noted that you could have any 5 1/3rds of keg offerings for a tenner. You could easily sit in here for a couple of hours, there is also a lot of outside seating so in better weather one could sit quite close to canal basin. Great pub, my favourite in Nottingham.

A rather large pub on two floors close to the railway station and with a patio by the canal side that should be really nice in the summertime. The festival Champion Beer of Nottinghamshire was on with 51 real ales on gravity so we spent most of the time at the first floor drinking beers from the county. The main room has a long bar displaying about ten cask ales, some interesting craft beers on keg and a wide range of bottled beers. Wood and brick interiors, even with a narrow canal boat inside. Attentive service with recommendations at the beer festival. Brit pop music in the background. If it hadn’t been for our Nottingham pub crawl, we could easily have stay here much longer (visited with Finn 20.02.2016).

On the canal. Some of it even inside! Old packhouse / industrial building. Many floors. There even was a festival on when we visited. Nice seating outside.
