A highly unique venue that will have you coming back time and time again
Opening in 2000 on the lower floors of the former Canal museum, the Canalhouse is famous for having a canal that extends into the grade II listed building, complete with resident narrow boats.
Our aim is simple to offer the best craft and world beer experience possible, paralleled with an extensive choice of real ale. With one of the largest selections of beer in the East Midlands, travel the world with us, guided by our ever-changing beer menu. The Canalhouse currently offers over 250 beers from around the world in bottle and can, alongside up to 6 real ales and 10 keg beers. On the bar you’ll also find a large selection of wines and spirits and up to 13 real ciders.
We truly are the bar of choice.
A versatile food offer is available daily with up to 15 specials.
At the Canalhouse we have a large events venue above our main bar that can fit up to 200 people, ideal for any occasion from corporate events to wedding receptions. We pride ourselves on our standards and service and can tailor any event to your individual requirements.
A large covered beer garden situated by the canal side enables people to sit outside no matter the weather.
