New Inn, Long Buckby
One of the original inns on the Grand Union canal, this is apparently the last remaining pub canal-side in the Buckby area. The location of this pub on the canal is fairly ideal and of course, is an attraction for canal boaters - they could do far worse. Decent beer and food from local and regional sources, great value menu and friendly bar staff make this one to seek out in the area. The view of the canal is almost worth the trip alone on a sunny day, but be warned that everyone else (and their kids) will have the same idea! The outside could use a bit of TLC, but it's hardly a show-stopper. At the junction of the Grand Union and the A5, we liked this one and were quite happy we went past all the other pubs on the way from the M1 to get to this one. And the Sunday roasts were great - fantastic crackling on the pork. Unlike dogs, kids are allowed in the bar accompanied by an adult until 9.30. Highly recommended.

The worst food I have ever had in a pub, although technically I didn't eat it since the soup I was served was spoiled to the point were it was actually bubbling. Clearly it has been sitting in the fridge for a long time before being microwaved. Out of a group of eight people, only one person liked her food (a fish finger sandwich) which ended up making her ill later that evening. While it might be fine for a drink, I don't recommend the food!
