Met with close friends for Sunday lunch. Staff were bright, cheerful and helpful. Food was good pub grub and whilst the menu is not extensive the execution is near perfection. Sunday roasts were large and tasty and other meals were just as good. Clean plates all round. Will be happy to go again next time I'm in the area

I visited the Grove Lock on the 18th of January 2015. The food was excellent, honestly priced and the portions are huge. Will definitely recommend and visit again. Friendly staff too and the place is warm, cosy and spotless.

Food was okay, service was great! My partner and I both had Sunday lunch - the meat was slightly fatty and the actual meal its self was barely hot. But the girls waitering were lovely & very helpful with my gluten intolerance.

We eat here on a regular basis and always find the food and service very good. Is a Fullers pub so the beer is good too. Also has an extensive canal side garden popular in the summer
