Canal-side not just for boats and ducks


The delights of enjoying a drink or a meal at a canal-side pub cannot be overestimated, especially with the prospects of a long hot summer to come.

The Tame Otter in the village of Hopwas, near Tamworth, Staffordshire, is one such delight - a country pub and restaurant that nestles alongside the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal.

This warm, friendly location, situated just outside Tamworth on the road to the cathedral city of Lichfield, has all the rural and rustic charm you would expect from a traditional inn that has been serving good food and beer since the early 1800's.

In the spring and summer months, assuming the sun is shining, there is nothing better than to sit out in the lovely beer garden and watch the brightly coloured boats either moored or passing by on the canal.

But, it is also worth a visit in the winter with a log fire to welcome and warm visitors.

The Tame Otter, which is also a great location for walkers and canal boat enthusiasts, is very popular with diners, with its menus ranging from seasonal pub-grub such as Sausage and Mash, and Chicken and Leek Pie, to a wide range of steaks.

A nice quaint touch is that when you order your food at the bar, you are given a large wooden spoon with a table number on it so the waitress can find you.

And you have a wide range of cask ales and wine available to either wash your meal down or just enjoy on their own.
