Canalside Services from Sovereign Wharf

Our services berth is open on Fridays from 9am – 5pm. We are often able to provide services on other days but please contact us in advance to book an appointment.

Sovereign Wharf offers the following canalside services:

Calor Gas

Sovereign Wharf supplies refills and new cylinders of Calor Gas. Propane is stocked in 3.9KG, 6KG and 13KG sizes. Butane is stocked in 4.5KG and 7KG sizes. We do not stock Patio Gas.

Pump Out 

Our pump out service offers a quick, easy and clean way to empty your boats holding tank. Mooring alongside our services berth we can pump out boats with outlets located only on the roof or on the bankside deck. We are sorry but we cannot pump out boats with deck mounted outlets on the non-bankside.

Pump out is normally charged at £15 per tank.


Our small chandlery stocks all of your boating essentials, plus some small gifts. Please see our chandlery page for more details.


We are sorry but at the present time Sovereign Wharf will not be selling diesel. We recommend the services of ‘Dusty’, our local fuel boat. They can be contacted on 07986 189 074.
