Lounge Bar

The lounge is styled as a multi purpose room providing comfort and flexibility, whether you're planning to eat, popping in for coffee or having a beer with friends.

Traditional Bars

The thatched canalside bars occupy the oldest part of the building and retain their original stone floors and open fires. In an adjacent room, you can play traditional Northamptonshire skittles, or wander outside, sit by the lock and watch the passing boats.

Woodward's Restaurant

The timber and stone barn style reflects the traditional nature of its surroundings giving an elegant, cosy and intimate atmosphere.

Conference Room

Situated upstairs next to Woodward's Restaurant is the conference room. A multi-purpose room designed with small groups, functions and presentations in mind.


The bistro area was historically stables in which boaters horses could stop off and have a rest before continuing to tow. The bistro was originally adapted from stables into a tea room and was later developed into the bistro it is today.

Indian Chief

The purpose built trip boat was named after the last traditional narrowboat in the Woodward family's cargo carrying fleet.
