Welcome to The Canal Turn

Recently re-opened following a quarter of a million pound refurbishment, The Canal Turn is a beautiful pub offering locally sourced food and drink right by the side of the famous Lancaster canal.

Originally built as the canal warden’s house for this northerly stretch of the water, the pub sprang to life in 2001, when the grade 2 listed portion of the property was sensitively extended. Recently refurbished throughout January 2016 – it’s first make-over since conception – the pub now stands as one of the most beautiful on the Lancashire / southern Lakeland border and is the only hostelry north of Lancaster with a full aspect and picket-fenced terrace alongside, and directly by, the canal. In summer we bring the outside in as our brand new sun lounge boasts floor to ceiling sliding doors that open fully, whilst in winter we go all cosy by way of our two log fires that run continuously. Whatever day or month, be assured a warm welcome awaits you at The Canal Turn.

We pride ourselves on being family and dog-friendly, which is just as well since the undoubted bosses of The Turn are our mischievous pug-crosses, Jago and Purdey, who keep a watchful eye on proceedings from their dog-station; or, more accurately, a watchful eye for anyone prepared to offer them a free treat from our constantly stocked jar on the bar!

Conveniently located a few miles off the M6 (on the A6), The Canal Turn is a great stopping point if travelling north or south and the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area, which includes The Lake District, North Yorkshire, Trough of Bowland, Lancaster, Morecambe, Blackpool and beyond.
