Friendly bar staff, good for families & dog friendly.
A lovely riverside spot with large outdoor terrace, inside it's not so cosy in the dining rooms but there are a couple of corners with woodburners, great for winter days with the papers.
Good food & reasonably priced. Deserts could benefit from some healthier options though.
Have been going here for a number of years. Took my Mum along for a Birthday lunch. Service and food excellent. Brought my 15th Month old Nephew who was immediately provided with some carrot/celery sticks (nice touch). Food and service superb!
We had a great lunch here. It has quite a small menu selection but we all found something we liked.
On the whole it was a nice experience, but as with many previous trips I feel the staff lack basic training in customer service. Failure to know the difference between hollandaise sauce and butter, or between normal toast and sourdough. Forgivable mistakes but not ones that were apologized for when pointed out. I love the look and feel of the Locksbrook Inn but somehow it never feels that welcoming and I always leave feeling a bit under done on the whole experience.
Great food and lovely environment. Good location to be able to take children.
Superb Sunday lunch, excellent service and great beers.
Lovely welcoming atmosphere. Fantastic food. Friendly service.
An excellent well presented pub and restaurant. Great atmosphere with comfortable seating for a pre dinner drink. Staff were attentive without being pushy and nothing was too much trouble. Good value meals and a good selection of beers.
We went for dinner and loved everything about the experience - from the fairy lights on the ceiling to the food all the way to the liquor coffee ending. We went back for breakfast a few days later and that was just as lovely. Our new favourite place in Bath.
I went with a party of 9 people for a family birthday get together, 9 people in total (with 2 children (5 & 9). The staff are really welcoming and friendly. The setting is nice, relaxed and family friendly. Good children's meal options and colouring pack for them. I had the veggie roast which came with loads of veg and I'd highly recommend. My husband is coeliac and unable to eat some of the "extra's" e.g. yorkshire puddings. The staff were really knowledgeable in this area which helped. My only gripe would be the size of the portions, for a decent roast you need more veg / potatoes - especially if there are bits of the meal missing from your plate. We ordered 2 extra portions of cauli cheese and all the plates were clear at the end - my husband came home and made cheese and crackers afterwards as he was still hungry. At £15 per head, some of the party had expected more food (and no-one asked / checked at the time either). I'd go again, but would ask for more veg.
We went to a Christmas works do in December where they catered for 70 people really well and have been back 4 times since! This was the first evening meal we had. The staff were attentive, knowledgeable and smiled the whole time ( clearly taking pride in their work and enjoy their surroundings) and the food was spot on. Everything was great but the three stand out things were
- the goats cheese starter - as beautiful to look at as to eat
- the steak ( not personally my first choice but 2 people in our party ordered it one cooked rare and the other medium and both done perfectly to order)
- the winter ale - the waitress knew all the beers, recommended this from my preferences and it really hit the spot!
Great pub, great food, and great people
Delicious food, presented well. Friendly staff. Would definately be visiting again 😊
Food, ambiance & location reasonably good but service was very poor. Waitress not that interested and just went through the motions. She spent a lot of time checking & typing messages on her mobile phone in the corner and was oblivious to the requirements of us and the other diners for long periods and got 2 of our meal orders wrong. Potentially a great place to eat & drink but the table waiting on this occasion unfortunately was not very good.
Came here with my fiancé and another couple for New Years Eve & it was great! We had never been before and we were pleasantly surprised how nice it was - the ambiance, service and food were all excellent! I have already recommended the Locksbrook Inn to all of my friends & we will definitely be back.
Great food, welcoming staff, love the decor and atmosphere
Lovely place along side the River, great food and service. Also very dog friendly throughout, which is fantastic.
Plenty of space which helps when u have a 16 month old baby with you. Good food & friendly staff.
The food was lovely, service could of been a little better.
Seeing it was my mum's birthday celebration, which I already mentioned when booking the table, but no-one seemed to say r realise this and we got offered free drink at the end of meal after my mum told them it was for her birthday that we came, which was a bit disappointing.
Also the ladies toilet was dirty from the night before which was more disappointing, I would expect the toilets to be checked and cleaned before opening.
But overall the food was very good and would recommend to a friend.
The food was fantastic. The staff were friendly. The only reason I have not awarded five stars for everything is because the dining room chairs were so incredibly uncomfortable. We were a party of five and we were all commenting about the seating.
We enjoyed a lunch of roast beef and all the trimmings. Food was excellent and so was the service. 10 out of 10.
Excellent service and great food. We had fish and chips and a beef burger both were excellent. Chunky chips were perfect, golden crispy ooitside and soft centre. Highly recommend eating here and will go again.
Not the best experience this evening. Half hour wait for drinks, another for starters, 45 more minutes for the main course. Was informed after ordering that the ribeye wasn’t available so agreed to substitute sirloin, but only after it arrived were we told that the peppercorn sauce we ordered wasn’t available(!) with the sirloin. Food quality generally very good, but the experience was sadly spoiled. At least one other table left during their meal because of the unacceptable waiting time.
As always a delight. Quiet late morning and early afternoon. Very tolerant of children. Friendly staff who let you get on with your meal. Please don't go here. You'll spoil it for me.
New menu, new staff, much better than before. Lamb was good.
This is a really nice cosy pub with nice food. Unfortunately we all ordered ciders and got given ale! But they quickly swapped it. I wouldn't order a pizza again but the other food was nice. Also had some wine added to our bill that wasn't ours, so do check it carefully!
The menu offered plenty of choice. The fish and seafood options were particularly good. Desserts were elegantly presented and delicious. Service was prompt and courteous and the surroundings are very comfortable, the booths are spacious and offer privacy enabling conversations to be enjoyed easily. The drinks were rather expensive and we were charged for 4 desserts instead of the 2 we actually had. This mistake, when pointed out to our server, was quickly corrected with an apology so no complaints on that score.
A good all round experience. Very pleasant staff and food enjoyed by all four of us.
Not silly prices but we all felt it was a bit overpriced compared to other recent lunches.
Quiet weekday lunch for a 30's birthday with a baby in tow. Very relaxed, excellent facilities, great food, top notch service. Highly recommended.
I bookedour table a month in advance for seven people, for my Mother’s birthday. The staff were kind and the food was lovely but we had to wait over an hour for our food. My children were not pleased 🙁
Excellent meal with a dessert to die for! Full of character it's set in a beautiful location.
Excellent food and service. Cosy, contemporary decor with a lovely atmosphere.
I looked for a suitable lunch time venue to meet family for lunch, not knowing the area that well I followed some of the previous customer reviews and wasn't disappointed.
Although the restaurant was quite the service and staff were very friendly and efficient, the meals were excellent especially the lamb and burger, though I would expect a little more choice on the lunch time menu or a specials board.
I would recommend a visit and will consider Locksbrook next time I'm in the area. I'd expect it to be more hectic during busier times , especially the summer months.
The staff are nice, the place is nice but they cannot cope with busy times. We went for Sunday Lunch. The food was fine but not outstanding and slightly overpriced for what it was. The staff were trying their hardest and very apologetic for the delays. The food took a while to come...
For some reason The Locksbrook is never quite on the mark. Strange as part of a good group of pubs.
Brilliant food and excellent service. Great atmosphere and setting. Definitely recommend this pub for an evening meal with friends or family.
Great little find this place . Food was really nice and good value and the service was great The beer was spot on as well
Nice pub, like other Bath Pub Co locations - but the kitchen is simply unable to cope. 95 minutes between ordering and food arriving. In the end our entire meal and that of others around us were given for free - which was a nice gesture but not really the point. Food adequate but we'd lost the will to live by the time it arrived. Others have since confirmed similar experiences on other days. Avoid unless you have nothing else to do all day.
Lovely family meal food was great especially the rack of lamb pizzas & burgers for the kids and the fish and chips is huge! Great atmosphere on Friday night really enjoyed ourselves. Waitresses were especially nice and helpful 10/10
Value was not good- expensive for average food. 1pm and no steak on Saturday menu so had the sharing steak priced at £25 per head- poor quality meat. Side dishes did not arrive & waited 45 minutes for 2 cheese boards, which were very small. 6 of us drinking & eating. Complained about slow service & quality of food & received discount & wine as recompense- but would rather have better food & good service & pay for it. Wouldn't recommend or visit again.
The menu could have more variety. Very poor choice. Disappointed
Bad quality food and service does not make up for the ambience.
