The Navigation Inn, Lapworth

Come and join us at the Navigation Inn for great quality refreshing beverages and excellent, fresh homecooked food! You're guarenteed a warm welcome from inn keepers Mark and Alison who have 30 years of experience working within the pub trade.


For the draught connoisseurs, our bars stocks a range of lagers, ciders, bitter and a selection of cask ales. We currently have 6 traditional ales on the bar including the country's only Guinness on handpull.

For the wine and champagne lovers, we have an even greater selection from the regions of New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, Italy, France, Chile and Spain.

Our spirits collection has a plethora of standard and premium ranges and our soft drink varieties offer similarly expansive choices.

What makes us different: The only Guinness on handpull in the country!

The inn keepers in their previous profession have been responsible for the installation of beer dispensing equipment and know how to keep excellent beer. They've used this knowledge to not only maintain the highest standards but have also been able to put a few twists on old classics. For example, the Navigation Inn is the only pub in the UK to have Guinness on handpump. The specialist setup allows for a smoother tasting pint with a thicker, creamier head. Just one of the many things you should come and try...




The Navigation at Lapworth is positioned on the road between Lapworth and Rowington, close to where the Stratford Canal meets the Grand Union Canal. For those canal boaters amongst you, we are located on the Grand Union canal at bridge 65, just above the Kingswood Junction. A great place to stop and rest a while on your journey.

We have 2 very impressive National Trust sites within a short distance of our pub: Baddesley Clinton is a picturesque medieval moated manor house and garden; whilst Packwood House is a much restored Tudor house with park, garden and notable topiary.

The nearest train station is Lapworth Railway Station, a short walk from our pub doors. The London Midland and Chiltern Railway services provide connections through to the entire country.

Free Wifi

All interior areas have access to our free wifi and are ideal for working lunches.

Dogs Welcome

We have 3 main rooms:

Main Bar: This room retains the original stone slate flooring and now has a log burning fire with newly installed bar and seating areas. We have a range of lagers, ciders and bitter along with a selection of cask ale handpumps. Dogs are welcome in the main bar area.
