Navigation Inn, Cosgrove

Went out for meal last night with our good neighbours Jo and Anthony Cross to the Navigation Inn at Thrupp Wharf, Cosgrove. It is our local canal-side pub. You will note from the blog that we have been there many times sometimes mooring-up outside. However, last night it was really busy which was a good sign.

Fat Freddy's Cat were playing in the conservatory which was packed. We ate in the bar, which was full, but even the fine dining area, Cameron's, was busy. After all the pub closures we saw on our spring trip last year it's great to see a thriving canal-side pub, and even better to find it on your "door-step".

Not long now until we take the spring trip for 2010. We are going to do the Thames Ring. We haven't done the full ring for some time and we want to see our new granddaughter en route.
