My daughters fish stew was cold and had to be sent back to the kitchen. My wife had the fish and chips and not all the chips were well cooked. I had the schnitzel which was excellent. We had the Veg platter as a starter which was lovely. Overall I was dis appointed this time as we have many meals with you in the past, which have been delightful. I would think twice before ordering the stew or the fish and chips again.

We ordered a smoothy for our daughter which never arrived, I enquired about it twice and each time was told that they would look into it and get back too us, but nobody ever did and when we got the bill we had been charged for the smoothy, they did take it off without hesitation when it was ponted out that we never received it. The food was really good and the staff was very friendly but there was more staff outside than in and it was difficult to get sombodys attention. Othere wise I would definitely go again.

A lovely setting right by the canal. The food was typical 'pub grub', and was great. The service was very slow though. It was a busy Sunday, lovely weather and all the tables looked full outside, and we had to wait quite a while for our drinks to arrive, then another wait for wine glasses. The main courses came while we were still eating our starters, then 1 person in the party had to wait another 4-5 minutes for their main meal to arrive. That said, there was a lovey ambience, and a very family friendly pub.

Even though we had a table booked we still had to queue outside but this was nothing major as the place was very busy. This aside it was a great evening

The visit was good but not great. Food was fairly standard pub grub, nothing special. The service was OK but it took us some time to attract someone's attention to pay the bill. Background music was a bit on the loud side. Not as good an experience as we have had in the past at the Locksbrook, but still OK.

This was a planned lunch date for 3. We booked inside but as nice weather moved with no problem outside. Staff were attentive.....perhaps too attentive as we were asked by 3 separate people if we wanted to order a drink while we waited for a friend. 🙂. We ordered starters to share and they were tasty. Bit hit and miss with the order things came out in. I.e. food before cutlery ....

We've been to the Lockbrook multiple times before for drinks as it has a lovely location by the canal. Unfortunately this time we were eating and it did not live up to the expectation. The roasts were largely disappointing (apart from the meat which was superb) but had to wait over 10 minutes for gravy by which time our food was largely cold. One person ordered fish and chips and was unable to eat it due to being raw in the centre.

Lovely pub, hopefully when we go back next time it will be back to its normal higher standards, think we were just unlucky with how busy it was on the day!
