Coolcanals: Waterways Directory & Information Guide. Waterside Walks & Cycling, Boating & Holidays in the Waterways Outdoors


Food & drink

Much ado is made of 'slow' food these days. But in the world of canals everything is laid back and it's not just slow food, it's slow eating too! Indulge yourself with anything from a healthy waterside picnic, to gourmet food on a floating restaurant... or the best British treat of a pie and a pint in a cosy canalside pub.
Great days out along Britain's canals are all about taking time for long lazy lunches on the waterside, enjoying locally brewed ales and ciders, homemade cream teas, or soaking up the slow charms of some very special canalside pubs, teashops and restaurants.
