Wedged between the towpath and a retaining wall, this is a long, narrow pub, with bare stone walls and floors. A mezzanine floor and the space underneath it are used mainly for dining. There are seats on the towpath. Moorings for canal boats. 3 × 1/3 pint trays available.
The Water Witch was a passenger packet boat that once plied the Lancaster canal. The building, originally a canal company stable block, assumed its present name and use in 1978 - the first true canalside pub on this stretch of water.
