Great Deals at The Navvy

Looking on the bright side, at least the media are starting to come up with good news stories rather than their usual relentless wall of doom and gloom.  However, we know that it is still tough out there, and so are pleased to be able to offer some money saving deals to help ease the strain.


Below you can see some of the fantastic offers we have to help make the pennies go a little further!  See our DINING section at the top and then SPECIAL DEALS for more information.


Fish and Chip 'Fry Day'

Join us on a Friday, lunch or evening, and enjoy home battered fish with hand cut chunky chips, peas and home made tartare sauce for just £8.50. (Or take out for £7.50)

Children's menu
We are pleased to offer a selection of child friendly dishes for children under 10, available Wednesday - Saturday lunchtimes and Tuesday - Saturday evenings between 6 and 7pm.  As with our main meals these are home made using only the best ingredients (no bought in rubbish here!)  The children's menu is priced at £5.95 (burger £7.50)
.


Book Exchange

We now have a bookcase in our main bar area with a good selection of fiction and non fiction books.  Customers are welcome to bring a book and exchange for one or to take a book home with them for a suggested donation of £1 which goes to our regular charity The Midlands Air Ambulance.  Due to the success of the Book Exchange / Purchase, we are currently short of books.  If you have any you don't need, we would be delighted to take them off your hands!

 

Free WiFi

You can ensure that you are never out of touch when you are at The Navvy by using our Free Wi-Fi.  Click into 'The Cloud' when you are here, whether with your laptop, tablet or phone, and after a simple first time registration you are up and running and able to stay connected any time you are with us.  You can also download a simple app (FastConnect) which will allow your device to automatically connect to The Cloud free WiFi any time you are at The Navvy or in thousands of other places around the country.  Brent can explain more (don’t waste your time asking Mark, he is still using his dumb phone!).


Just Rewards?

It is always nice to be recognised for your achievements and endeavours.

We are delighted to learn that for the fifth year running we will be in The Good Pub Guide (2018/19) as a full entry. We have seen the entry, and a very nice write up it is too!  Thanks to those customers who by their recommendations have made this possible. We have also made it into the AA Pub Guide for 2018/9 once again.


We are also pleased to announce that we have now achieved Gold standard in the British Hen Welfare Trust Awards.  This recognises our commitment to using only free range eggs in all of the dishes on our menu and follows on from the Silver we were awarded last year. This top award has come about mostly due to our decision to start making our own ice cream and of course double checking our suppliers of items such as mayonnaise.

Finally we are delighted to announce that our kitchen has been upgraded to the highest possible rating (5 Very Good) by Shropshire County Council as part of their Scores on the Doors scheme. It reflects the cleanliness of the food preparation areas and the work of the staff who work in them, so congratulations to all of them.

Boating your way to The Navvy

If you are lucky enough to be coming down The Montgomery Canal by boat, then there are moorings opposite us for your convenience.  It is worth noting that if you are planning to cruise down the Canal, you will come through the locks at Welsh Frankton as you leave the Llangollen Canal.  These locks are manned, and only open between 12 and 2pm each day.  You MUST prebook by calling the Canals and Rivers Trust on 03030 404040 by 10am on the day you wish to come through the locks.  If you do not book, you will not be allowed through, even if it is a quiet day.  Once you are through the locks it is a leisurely 2 - 3 hours down to The Navvy.  Bear in mind that you will also need to book a return passage.  During the winter season (roughly November - March) please note that 48 hours notice for passing through the locks is required.
