Gasping for a pint? Then make quick to one of our top 25 waterside drinking inns, or tell us about your favourite pub and we'll add them to our list

There are few greater joys in this boating life than pulling up waterside and stepping ashore for a swift pint and a bite to eat, so ever the professionals, the MBM team has tirelessly sought out our favourite pubs to save you all the hard work. And trust us, it was hard work.

Go to our gallery to see some of the pubs that made the grade, or to read the full feature see the August issue of MBM.

So inspired were we by the pubs that we found, that we have decided to launch a new online Pub of the Month. To nominate your favourite drinking den, email your suggestions to sally_coffey@ipcmedia.com
