Very nice pub, great parking and a little gem tucked away. Service was quick despite being very busy, food was great. Highly recommend the pizza! The only thing the waiter forgot to bring was our sauce and the drinks had to be checked on but apart from that! We will definitely be back!

Looks very pleasant from the outside. Go in to a busy, but friendly, bar area. Greeted quickly and taken to our table, which is in a separate dining area. The decor and ambiance was lovely. The menu has just the right amount of selection. The food itself was delicious!! Great simple ingredients, cooked to a very high standard. Staff were helpful and friendly. Pretty good value for money too. It was our first time at the locksbrook, but it certainly won’t be our last.

Had the 3 course Xmax meal. The food was outstanding, cooked to perfection, beautifully presented, extremely tasty & the portions were very generous. The staff all wore masks. We felt safe especially as I had been advised by email that all staff take daily LFTs. The staff were also welcoming and attentive. Lower score on ambience only because it was very quite as they had a lot of cancellations, however, the decor was very festive.
