The Boat Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Recently voted Family-friendly Pub of the Year by LUX Magazine, this award-winning inn has plenty to shout about. Nestled in the beautiful hamlet of Thrupp, The Boat Inn boasts a fantastic canalside location, making it the perfect destination for families and ramblers alike. In summer, the thriving beer garden is the place to be, whether you’re simply sipping a pint of ale or tucking into a delicious lunch. Service is cheerful, charming and efficient, contributing to The Boat Inn’s air of warm conviviality.
When it comes to food, everything is home-cooked where possible and made fresh to order. The extensive menu is brimming with mouth watering favourites, ranging from a selection of homemade pies and grilled dishes, to pub classics and chef’s specials. Start with the likes of chicken liver and whisky pâté served with Melba toast and caramelised red onion chutney, and freshly made smoked haddock and mozzarella fishcakes. Next, opt for the succulent rump steak served with chunky chips, or try the slow-cooked lamb shank accompanied by peppered mash, parsnip crisps and rosemary and mint gravy. Alternatively, the selection of pies is guaranteed to please, and vegans will love the mushroom, squash and spinach pie. If you’re looking to host an event, why not get in touch? The experienced team will ensure a memorable visit, whatever the occasion. Throughout the year, The Boat Inn brings people together thanks to top-notch British food, a beautiful setting and an inviting atmosphere.
