Met my brother for the evening for something to eat and the whole situation was perfect. Staff polite and friendly, table was private, food was really nice and we were not rushed out at the end of the evening. Perfect.

Booked well in advance, which seemed to create some confusion, but had little trouble once I was passed on to the person who knew what they were doing. Evening meal was good, with a wide selection of menu items and a few specials. The pie I had was piping hot and very tasty, with plenty of well-cooked veg and a... More

I really recommend The Grove Lock. A nice atmosphere, great hospitality and excellent food at great prices. The surroundings are perfect in the summer to sit by the lock. In winter the fire is going and it's just such a lovely place to be. I have one request though.. Bring back the triple cooked chips.. They were the best I... More

Having come across Grove Lock by accident some time ago, this place has become a family favourite. The food never disappoints, the atmosphere is warm and comfortable. I've recommended to friends and they too have put Grove Lock on their food place to go to.

I went to this place previous evening with a friend having checked online for a nice pub in the region. Apparently they close the kitchen at 9pm. Nice pub, nice location. We were there 10 minutes before the kitchen closes so had to place our order quickly before that. I told my friend to order a 'med veg and halloumi'... More

We both had roast beef. Not too sure about it as it didn't look great however looks can be deceiving. It was fantastic. Huge amounts of lovely tender beef, gorgeous veg and wonderful Yorkshire pudding. Will definitely go back.
