"The Boat" or "Boat Inn" is, unsurprisingly, a very common name for canalside pubs. Some have very distinctive architecture, such as the one at Gnosall on the Shropshire Union:
Perhaps the best-known example is on the Grand Union at Stoke Bruerne:

Situated opposite the church in the centre of a small Midlands town it backs onto a long, lock-free section of narrow canal. Mooring at the rear would be difficult but there are some visitor moorings at the next bridge. Locals will know it well, but I wonder how many blog readers know where it is?
