Description of Boat Inn in Solihull
The Boat Inn is an attractive 19th century pub at the heart of the tiny village of Catherine-de-Barnes on the Grand Union Canal. In rural surroundings yet with easy access to the M42 and the North Warwickshire countryside, this welcoming village inn is a delightful location for a delicious pub lunch. With its prominent location at the heart of the village, alongside the cricket pitch and the village hall, The Boat Inn is a charming pub restaurant with an extensive beer garden close to the Grand Union Canal, the last chance of mooring up on the waterway from Napton to Birmingham’s Gas Street Basin. While the present building dates back to the late 1800’s, parts of the pub are much older. The Boat Inn, which has been serving the residents of ‘Catney Barnes’ as it is known locally, for hundred of years, once boasted its own wharves and stables, and would have been a welcome sight for the navvies employed in building the canal, which was ceremonially opened on the 19th December 1799. With roaring fires in winter and a large beer garden for the summer months, this delightful village inn is the ideal location for a relaxing Sunday lunch or a drink with friends after a walk along the canal towpath, or exploring the surrounding countryside. Once part of the densely wooded ancient Forest of Arden, Catherine-de-Barnes is named for the 12th century lord of the manor of Langdon, Ketelberne, and stands on leafy Hampton Lane, connecting Solihull with the pretty villages of Hampton-in-Arden and Meriden, the geographic centre of England. A medieval wayside cross on Meriden village green marks the spot. The 100-mile Heart of England Way crosses Meriden through rural Warwickshire, linking the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with the Cotswolds AONB.
