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. We serve meals for any occasion, from sandwiches and light bites to all the classic, whether it be lunch, an afternoon snack or a evening meal nothing is too much trouble. Food is served all day and we can accommodate large parties. Evening sunshine? Come and see our great beer garden with children's play equipment and our beautiful pagoda, with working fire place. We also provide an extensive range of draught beers, great selection of cask ales and a wide selection of wines. As well as Offering full table service, we believe the Gamston Lock is the perfect location for any occasion. Darren and the team look forward to welcoming you soon.

Booked for 15 guests, the table was not big enough as three adults had to sit the end of one table, so very cramped. One meal was not as described on the menu. The Yeeha Burger says its stacked with pulled pork and chili beef. But not a morsel of pork or beef in sight, only a sauce which apparently... More

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. The restaurant in terms of decor is very nice following the refurbishment following the fire last year. The... More
