The Pocklington Canal runs along the rear of the pub with visitor access just to the left, so visitors can park up and saunter down to the canal and take a 30 minute canal boat trip on a Sat and Sun during the months of April to Oct. This is operated by The Pocklington Amenity society and their telephone number is 0751497645 for further details. Please note that there is no need to book, just turn up, but you may have to wait a while as it is very popular. In addition, you can take a stroll along the canal, which is ideal for walkers, bird and wildlife enthusiasts and of course families taking your dogs for walks. We are very family friendly pub and take great pride in meeting our customers needs. Many visitors pop into the pub for a coffee and sandwich or a gin and tonic and lunch prior their walk or upon their return. We have a lovely Sunday roast served on Sundays from midday - 5pm, but it is advisable to book to ensure a table in the summer, as we get very busy. During the summer months our sun trap terrace at the front comes into its own, where one can relax with a speciality tea or coffee or an alcohol beverage as well as eating al fresco in the sunshine. Pets welcome on the sun terrace or in the rear beer garden. Please note that although we are closed at present during the lunchtimes during the week, we are available for private functions Mon to Fri lunchtimes for groups of 20 to 60. For details, please ring us at the pub and we will be happy to help you.
