Our Pub

Why Our Pub is Great

A picturesque canalside setting, stunning period features, and lovely food make The Navigation near Towcester a must-visit. Our pub is located in the charming old village of Stoke Bruerne, which lies on the Grand Union Canal, near the Blisworth Tunnel. Take a stroll along the tow path, which is peppered with wonderful historic locks. Then pop in for a pint of real ale and a hearty lunch. The Navigation has the buzz of a popular locals pub, and the warmth of an inn that welcomes tourists.

Eat indoors amidst wooden beams and exposed stone walls. Step outside and dine right by the water; we have a beer garden and a patio. Food is served every day until late from a comprehensive menu that includes comforting British dishes and global cuisine. We have great vegetarian and vegan choices. And a separate children’s menu that includes teatime champions. The outdoor kids’ play area will keep them busy until it’s time to eat. We open for coffee and breakfast, and our main menu is available from midday, every day. Discover dishes bursting with taste, flavour, and colour. 

About Our Food

Colourful, fresh, and delicious, our food is served restaurant style by friendly and knowledgeable staff. From original and interesting sharers to superb comfort food and decadent puddings, the emphasis is on quality. You’ll find pies filled with rich sauces, tender and robustly-flavoured steaks, and juicy burgers as well as our famous Red Tractor farm-assured roast chicken.

All of our ingredients are responsibly sourced, from the cod and haddock we use in our Marston’s Pedigree-battered fish ‘n’ chips to the langoustine tails in our Whitby scampi. Or the 100% fillet fish fingers on our children’s menu.
