Fully refurbished and located on the outskirts of Gamston and West Bridgford, opposite Holme Pierrepont. The Gamston Lock offers something for everyone which includes our famous fantastic Rotisserie chicken and an extensive menu which is enhanced by our home-made traditional British specials.

Have been twice - no issues on the first visit. However, on the second visit the food was very poor. Bland, cheap and nasty. Shame because the decor is nice, kids are welcome, and staff are friendly. Won't be back.

A real shame. Such a beautiful pub and great service staff but the food is a let down. Very untasty food, nothing to write home about. The Blue cheese sauce maybe sniffed the blue cheese at one point in its life but blue cheese sauce.... it was not. Corn fritters were dripping in oil. All round bland. Wetherspoons standard.

We ate at this restaurant/pub today for the second time, having previously had a very mediocre experience. Having decided to afford them the benefit of the doubt I wished we'd never bothered and we certainly won't be back for a third visit.
