Welcome to The Boat Inn at Thrupp!!!


 Apart from its idyllic setting on the banks of the Oxford Canal The Boat Inn is famous for its appearances

in the Inspector Morse series starring the legendary John Thaw.

More recently the pub has featured in ITV’s Barging Around Britain series hosted by John Sergeant.


Built in 1412 by Norse Fishermen who ravaged all the women in the village

which is why everyone around here has three ears. The Boat Inn has seen many changes over the years

and nearly as many Landlords; let’s hope we can stay longer than the current average!!.  


The building is said to be haunted by the ghost of a former customer who got so drunk that he collapsed and died in the bar. It is said that on the anniversary of his death you can still smell his distinctive personal aroma. He also moves things around the bar during the night and pots have fallen off shelves for no reason. Personally I think one of the boat dwellers has a key because the Ghost can certainly drink a lot, as our stock taker will testify to.


We try very hard not to keep you waiting for your meal but inevitably in busy periods,

we would ask you to be patient as we do cook your food to order.


We hope you have a great time here, any problems tell us and we will do everything we can to put it right for you.

Remember; we can put it right Trip Advisor can’t.
