Great setting, lovely decor both in and out, and really nice staff.

Table was very wobbly (with 5 of us seated around it) and chairs were not the most comfortable for the time we had to sit and wait for food. Food was late, really rough roast dinner and my partner's didn't even arrive.

Just happy to get out of there and we all decided it is a nice location for drinks, but would never eat anything else there. Sorry but I'd rather spend my £100 elsewhere next time and feel like I ate freshly prepared and quality food.

A massive shout out to the 2 waitress that was in the middle of breaking up a fight!!! Who which ones of them was verbal abused by an old man! And still after all of that both of them came to check on all the customers without even having a moment to them selfs! Other than that this is a great place with a great atmosphere! Just unfortunate that we still have disrespectful “elderly” men who think it’s acceptable to call a female a “c*nt” and that she “is a disgrace to the human race” clearly can’t handle his drink. These to deserve a pay rise after all of that and remained professional throughout!

Food was average quality and not good value.The pot of chips was tiny made up of fragments of chips.The waiting staff were friendly bar staff appeared nonplussed. The addition of a service charge made an average meal even more expensive.

Locksbrook Inn is Welcoming and proficient. I am a regular (weekly) patron of Locksbrook Inn , and enjoy meeting with friends for breakfast. The option of outside (under the canopy) seating has been an attraction during the Summer months, and the quality and variety of breakfasts on offer are always appreciated.

Although the presentation was good; I feel the pate would have been more enjoyed with chutney/chutneys rather than the veggies it had with it. Wasn’t keen on the taste of the veggies such as the cauliflower.

Brilliant service and evening, it was wonderful to be able to sit in the comfortable and spacious outdoor area. The food was excellent and fresh and the staff were friendly and accommodating. My only issue with this or any pub or restaurant was the inability to catch a staff member's eye - why don't staff constantly scan their work area to see if anyone wants service?

Roast Beef was very average and a bit dried out. The pork looked significantly better. Felt that at £17.50 it wasn't a good value roast. There was nothing "wrong", I just think you can do better in Bath for similar money. The service was friendly and the covered outdoor seating area is nice.
