Narrow BoatWelsh Frankton
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A family owned pub, now in its second generation of ownership. It was built in 1981 and was designed with the intention of it having something of the feel of a narrowboat. Thus the public area is quite narrow, and is 71ft long, just like a narrowboat! That boat is even longer now, as an extension has been built at the western end to provide more dining room. Being very much a canal side pub, most of the space is devoted to dining, but there is a small bar area in what may be considered to be the boat’s stern. The pub is one of only four in Shropshire on the Llangollen Canal. It's about 30 miles from the Hurleston Junction with the Shropshire Union mainline, and is the first canalside pub encountered. And it really is a waterside pub as its lawned area at the front leads right up to the water. The boating fraternity is very well catered for in that there are ample moorings nearby, together with the Maestermyn Marina, which is in the same ownership as the pub
