Did someone say pub…? 

Grab your friends and head out for drinks with a twist. Whizz or glide along the scenic canal spots through Barrow-On-Soar, Quorn and Mountsorrel, stop off at one of the riverside pubs for strawberry ciders on ice and your weekly quota of fried halloumi, before taking a chilled meander back to base.

Enjoy a half or full day cruising between our favourite spots along the River Soar.

A great riverside pub for some refreshing beverages and delicious snacks

We would definitely do this again & bring family & friends along to enjoy the fun with us.

Best trip I’ve ever had on a kayak, best laugh I’ve had on a river :)
— Mike

Time to get the shades on as you chill in the perfectly placed beer garden

Wow-what a find! Worth every penny spending a day on Leicestershire’s rivers and canals.
Would definitely recommend and will certainly be returning for another journey with my family

It’s Gin o’clock!

(& maybe we can squeeze in some delicious wood fired pizzas)
