Leeds & Liverpool Canal Pubs

There are pubs and restaurants of every possible sort within easy reach of your boat. From simple locals to gastropubs, via large chain pubs and small ones with first-rate home cooking, each will give you a different experience, a real welcome and great value. Here are just a few of those our customers enjoy. They're not all called the Navigation, the Anchor or the Ship...
