Lovely pub and garden (at the back) with plenty of space, excellent cleanliness and Covid measures in place, and lovely choice of food. Well presented tasty food and good service. Don't be put off by the front of the pub - it doesn't look too promising from that aspect, but once you are inside or in the back garden, it is a gem.

Very lovely meal as always, very accommodating of our two huge dogs! We went for Sunday lunch and it was packed as always. Service was really fast considering how busy it was & very tasty food. Would highly recommend the vegetarian wellington if you can get in on a Sunday. Perfect way to end summer.

Lovely place, lovely food, great service.
Sunday lunch, well prepared and all served up plated, perhaps could have had more vegetables.
Sticky toffee pud with salted caramel ice cream- best ever!

The ambience is amazing. The staff are excellent, attentive and friendly. But the food surpassed everything, the chef/‘s are top class. The best falafel I have ever eaten.

A very pleasant Gastro Pub to visit on a sunny day. We visited on a Sunday and while only one of our party (4) chose to have a traditional roast as their main course, which was fab, the others all chose individual dishes. All excellent, all tasty. Staff were good and each one we met made our visit feel safe and secure with all tables being cleaned and disinfected between patrons. The wine list was eclectic and reasonably priced. Overall we've got nothing negative to say and we hope to be back in Bath soon for another visit.

Buzzing and vibrant outside area and bar beside the river. Quieter restaurant area. Staff plentiful and helpful. Very good food - English bistro style as well as pizzas ranging up to about £22 for a steak (which was cooked as required). Perfect for a relaxed meal with friends and children welcome.

After sharing the meat platter (selection of salamis, delicious ham hock terrine, sourdough toast, slaw, olives), my companion chose the fish and chips which she deemed excellent and copious, and I went for the sea bass which was cooked with olives et al - not usually keen on olives in cooking, but this has converted me. The Locksbrook is consistently excellent.

Very good squid starter and enjoyed poussin main course. Glad I didn’t have falafel starter as sauce was hot and spicy but husband enjoyed it. Gammon eggs & chips main course looked and tasted good.
Asked if wanted to sit outside or inside and we choose inside, both seating areas were popular but well managed with space between tables. All the staff we met were wearing masks and kept their distance but at the same time ensured we were happy with our choices.

Covid definitely has an impact on businesses but I fail to see how that can excuse the level of service on my latest visit.

- No roasts on a Sunday
- Mains arrived 1 hour after initial seating
- Dirty glasses
- I felt unwell all night after eating here, while this could be unrelated I wasn't impressed with the level of hygiene.

The staff are nice and we had no concerns there, we even tipped, but something has clearly taken a turn for the worst. It's a shame because there is so much potential and I was really hoping for an experience worthy of the price charged.

The pub is lovely and I can see why it attracts people, they just need to get their act together and start delivering the service customers come here for. I'm in no doubt that this is a blip on a historically clean record, and I look forward to returning when the service resembles its reputation.

Managed to get a table on the same day for Sunday dinner, with our dog. Had squid for starters, absolutely delicious, chicken Sunday roast x 2 for mains, no room for dessert. Roast was gorgeous and healthy portions, not like some places!. Staff lovely too. Thoroughly recommend.

Food was tasty, excellent.
I had to wait ages for a drink after being seated. I would also like to have known in advance that our table was rebooked , rather than feeling rushed when told after
eating. Service generally pleasant and polite, if a little slow.
I felt the ambience was lacking but realise it is is difficult at the moment with distancing.

We found this restaurant very disappointing. As part of the trio Hare and Hounds, Marlborough Tavern and the Locksbrook this one is not up to the same standard as the others. Same price though!

Usually love this pub - it was a bank holidays Sunday however it was only 530 pm and there was no pork, chicken roast, no Yorkshire puddings, no cauliflower cheese, asked to move - people did cancel in end, even though there were lots of empty tables, disappointing as I recommended to friends to go there.

It was Sunday of the Bank Holiday weekend. The pub was very busy. They had run out of some meals. The food at the second attempt was really good. However, my sons pizza was wrong (waiter admitted it was his fault.....maybe write things down in future rather than trying to remember) the two Sunday dinners were Luke warm first time. But were excellent when served hot.

Waited 1 hour and a half for a Sunday Roast. Table was booked for 3pm and didn’t get our food until 4.30. When the food did come out the Yorkshire pudding was dry and crusty which just fell apart into crumbs, potatoes were clearly reheated and tasted dry. Hardly had any veg on my plate. They gave us 50% off the food because we complained. Not good enough, won’t be returning
