An enterprising proper landlord would set up a type of rope pulley system so that walkers who are on the wrong side of the canal could have there refreshments sent over in a box.

And once it got known that this service was available people would be coming from miles around to try it out.

I think there is a bell you can ring and they send a little boat over for you. It's not too far to the bridge though if you are really hungry.
