The Fisherman's

A few hundred yards further on from Dowley Gap locks, you reach the point where a road crosses the canal on the way up to Gilstead and Eldwick. It's a convenient point to aim for from Saltaire, as it boasts one of the few canalside pubs in the area.  The Fisherman's has always served pretty good food as well as ale, and it has a beer garden and a few tables actually on the canalside (although to get to them you have to cross a small lane that leads to some houses behind the pub).  It's a popular spot on a sunny day.


  1. Looking very clean; was that for 'Le Tour'?

    1. I don't think so, John. It didn't pass the pub. But it has had a facelift lately, by the looks of it.

  2. A good resting point during a hike!

  3. As quaint and peaceful as ever!

  4. I wish we had one of these just down the road!

  5. This place looks great. When my daughter lived outside London, she took me to a pub that looked a lot like this.
