The Grand Union Restaurant and Bar, Royal Leamington Spa, by Bridge 40 on
the Grand Union Canal (GUC)
A review by Graham Beven, Narrowboat 'Maid of The Mist'
visited The Grand Union one lunchtime in early April 2010 soon after the grand
re-opening and found it to be a delightful canalside bar, terrace and fine-dining
restaurant, providing 50 covers, with many original features but with a modern
We took our lunch from the bar menu and sat out on the newly decked roof terrace
that overlooks the canal and restaurant garden. The bar and terrace can be reached

Pubs on the towpath Stratford-on-Avon Canal near Shirley, Shirley Heath, Solihull.
The Drawbridge, Drawbridge Road, Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands B90 1DD - MAP - The Drawbridge Pub is part of the Punch Taverns "Flaming Grill" chain.
Located alongside the canal drawbridge in Shirley, on the outskirts of Solihull, you will find The Drawbridge Pub.
There are visitor moorings either side of the electric powered lift bridge. Just the place to try if you are looking for an excuse not to cook!
One of the attractions is to sit at the pub window to watch the canal traffic as the bridge goes up and down to it let boats through.
The modern style pub was built in the 1970s and has been added to and improved over the years.

The Grapes Pub and Seafood Restaurant, Near Limehouse Basin, East London
The Grapes is on Narrow Street, close to Canary Wharf, truly a narrow street
running parallel to the River Thames through the Limehouse area of East London.
Built in 1720, on the site of previous public houses dating from the earliest
in 1583, The Grapes was a Thames waterside tavern for the working classes, particularly
serving the workers of Limehouse Basin.
Some would say this is "Possibly the perfect pub" having managed
to survive the recent Docklands redevelopments all around it. This shows what
a special place it is. This narrow little pub has now attained listed building
We found The Grapes pub bar to be cosy and welcoming.
We booked our table for two at The Grapes for 19.15 arriving for a pre dinner
drink in the ground floor public bar at 18.45 where we found the part-paneled
bar hosts lots of etchings and prints, mainly of 19th century theatrical luvvies
and some elaborate acid etched windows. We took our drinks out on to the
river view deck and watched the river traffic making its way with and against
the quick ebbing tide.
