No. 11 The Bridge Inn
Visited on 24/2/11. A short stroll down the road and we're back in Boughton. The 'Bridge' has many of the attributes of a really great pub. For instance, it's a sympathetically decorated grand old Victorian building in a great canalside location. However, it's let down by a number of things, most notably the beer. Timothy Taylor's Landlord is a classic English ale, but on this occasion was served flat and insipid. Also, the clientele tend towards the 'studenty' (law college nearby) with even a whiff of 'hooray Henry' about one or two. This was balanced however by the presence of several members of the community of the permanently bewildered. 'Could do better' is the verdict on this one.
