    Oh I loved this place. You wouldn't guess it is what it is from the front. But walking in and go through to the seating area, nicely spread out tables and such a warm welcome. Our 2 toddlers were beautifully catered for. The food was divine and the service was excellent xxx thank you xx

    The amount of GF food was disappointing - plus the price for a sirloin steak (25.50) seems excessive - I had Moules and they were cold and there was little white wine sauce. Sad to say I wouldn’t go to the Locksbrook again - the location is outstanding put feel the food is overpriced - plus a 10% service charge added is a no no for me.

    Shame it was an mediocre experience… We arrived in time for our booking on father’s day. Restaurant was busy, but service seemed to be running ok. We were kindly offered drinks and crayons for our little one when our order was taken. Starters arrived on time but then we had to wait a whole hour for our mains. People next to us, which arrived after, had finished their meals when I stood up to ask about it. Only then the waitress said there was an error with the kitchen printer and ran to get our food. Our roasts were brought by another waitress who kindly apologised. Both dishes look nice but tasted like they were held on the counter for a very long time. The only hot plate on our table was our little one’s, that came at the very last despite us asking to be served with our starters or as soon as ready. This was extremely hot, which is very dangerous for a baby. Nobody checked on us or on our food. Not the first time (so they could of realised our food wasn’t delivered) Not the second time (so they could of known that our food was cold). Sides never arrived to the table. We had to go to the bar to order second drinks. When they came to collect the plates, they mentioned they forgot to send “mains away” and they offered some desserts, suggesting they would be “on the house”. At that point we just wanted to leave, so requested the bill, instead. When the bill arrived, the sides that never came were charged and also a 10% of service. Really? In the end, bill was corrected and only 10% discount was offered in exchange of an awful experience. I know it was a busy day but it was also our special day. I can understand errors can happen, but in this case staff had more than one opportunity to fixed ir right. Instead, they disappointed us. It took me ages to select a “nice place to take my husband on Father’s Day” and amongst every other place, I selected The Locksbrook Inn. Never again! It’s a shame as the place looked nice.

    Was expecting better food for the price…bit expensive for the quality. Was surprised to get in on Father’s Day now I know why there was plenty of tables left. Maybe give them another chance if I’m over that way again if every other pub in the area is booked up.

    The kitchen let down this experience. They ran out of food, didn’t update the menu and didn’t serve what was ordered. Some foods that were received were poor and returned. Others were good. The wait time was long.

    Went for Sunday lunch. One of our party asked what the soup was for starters, was told leak & pot, they brought out tomato + it was cold. Explanation they ran out but didn’t tell waiting staff!! Really? Roast beef was average as was the veg, some of the roast potatoes were rock hard. Sweets again were average. High price for very average food and service. Heavy reliance on the location of this pub means they can get away with non returning custom. My advice - don’t bother.

    Lovely garden, but the outside furniture is looking worn and ive noted on the last few visits the glass topped tables in particular are filthy. It put us off our food to be honest yesterday, as we had to wait ages for plates to share pizza etc. and therefore noticed the layers of dirt. Needs a thorough jetwash please.

    We booked a table online, which was really easy to do. We where asked to pay a £10 per head reservation charge, which I think is fair when so many people don’t turn up these days. When we arrived there was a wait for food because they where so busy, we where told roughly 50 mins, however the waitress was very quick to take our drinks and food order to get us into the queue. We had just finished our first drink when the waitress noticed we hadn’t had food yet, she did a fabulous job of managing the communication and keeping us comfortable while we waited, and was proactive about creating a plan when she recognised we hadn’t had a perfect experience. When the food arrived, it was good honest pub grub, everything was as we expected, and tasted fabulous! We could have walked away feeling really disappointed by our experience due to the wait, however the staff are so good at front of house service it didn’t feel negative at all!

    Good food overall. Had the fish pie and a pizza, both of which were very good. We followed with the cheesecake which was good but a bit dense and sticky toffee pudding which was very good but far too much toffee sauce (and I have a very sweet tooth!). Wine by the glass seemed a bit pricey. Staff polite and attentive. Got quite noisy by the time we left as we were the middle table between 2 large parties!
