Canalhouse

About

Award-winning craft beer pub, featuring a canal that extends through the centre of the building.

The Canalhouse is an iconic Nottingham pub, housed in a Grade II listed former canal museum. It’s famous for having a canal that extends inside the building, complete with resident narrow boats and a foot bridge.

In 2016 and 2017, the Canalhouse was awarded Ratebeer’s prestigious Best Beer Bar award for Nottingham. It is also the proud recipient of Visit Nottingham’s Tourism Pub of the Year Award, 2018.

This trailblazing pub paved the way for Nottingham’s craft beer scene and is a must-visit venue for beer lovers. A versatile food menu is served daily, from pub classics and Sunday Roasts to changing specials.

With the canal as your backdrop, a large beer garden provides the perfect spot to while away the hours.
