Had a look at some of recent reviews, but as usual prefer to use my own experiences. Starter ordered and provided in a reasonable time - no issues, except I now know what a magic mushroom is.. mushroom went AWOL when cooked leaving an empty breadcrumb shell. Steak cooked to liking, although a fatty cut it was well cooked nothing... More

We have been to the Lockkeeper tonight the service and food was disappointing. We went in and found the bar was deep with people till we realised it was simply because n o one was getting served. The staff were not having to do all the jobs leaving the few that was there having far to much to do to... More

We used to go here a lot when the children were younger, with my mum, but stopped going because it was continually terrible, badly cooked food etc. I took the children, now teenagers for a sandwich a few weeks ago and it seemed a lot better, so I took my son as a treat one evening for tea. The wait... More

I ate here without huge expectation of quality and in a sense got what I expected. The hardest and most tasteless Yorkshire pudding of my life. Won't be returning any time soon.

This review also appears under Premier Inn Chesterfield North. We had pre-booked a table in the restaurant next door for 8 p.m. but has we had just traveled 140 miles we were on the rather hungry side of starving. So I made my way to the restaurant to enquire if I could get an earlier table. The place was heaving... More

Visited recently with family part of a large group of kids and adults. We booked in advance, upon arrival we were advised we had to leave the table in 1.5 hours as it has been reserved for another sitting! Unfortunately we felt having reserved the table in advance we shouldn't be rushed? Some of the group wanted the buffet to... More

I have recently reviewed the Premier Inn attached to The Lock Kerper but inadvertently put the Beefeater. Apologise for the confusion. I had read reviews on The Lock Keeper some of which hadn't given them a glowing report but we found the food to be well cooked, hot and tasty. We also found the staff and service to be very... More
