A floating pub? That's a new one! Excellent addition to the collection, plus the place goes on the 'must visit' list.

Another boat uploaded today in the pub series. Nice one - though I'm not sure being on the river is actually floating on it as Moira hinted!!!
I spotted it because its the current Featured E2 Photo.
