disappointing😔

we visited here on 27th may and went for lunch..although the food sounded really nice on the menu in actual fact when it came it was very basic and not really value for money...As the pub overlooks the locks we were probably paying for the location...even so we wont be back!

My friends and I met here for lunch today ( Saturday 30 May) , we had pre booked for three at 13.00. It took at least ten minutes for us to be shown to our table ( two parties in front of us). When we got to our table the service was appallingly slow and after two courses and coffee... More

Went to the Foxtons Lock inn on a Friday evening for a family meal. We hadn't booked, but we were lucky enough to get a table in the lovely conservatory overlooking the locks. I would recommend booking as all the other tables around us were reserved. The menu is spot on with good choices to suit everyone, without being overwhelming.... More

Arrived about 5:30pm on Bank Holiday Monday at the end of May, didn't expect much as it was a touristy situation and a BH, but was very pleasantly surprised. Smoked trout salad was lovely. Other food eaten by husband and child was eaten up quickly. Didn't have to wait too long. Price good for a touristy spot. Young staff were... More

Visiting Foxton Locks Inn on Sunday last was disappointing. The table was booked in advance for 6 of us. It took us three and a quarter hours to receive and eat our two course meal as the service was extremely slow, and because I had had to pay to park the car for a maximum of four hours, this left...

We have visited here many times, enjoyed our meals and had a good experience. However, this time was not as good. Although we made two separate orders for the same table straight after each other, and to the same staff member - our friends food arrived first; 30 mins later they had eaten, and ours had still not arrived. We... More

Foxton Locks Inn is situated at the foot of the famous Foxton Locks and has great views across the canal junction. Nine of us ate there on the first night of our holiday. The place was busy as you might expect on a Bank holiday but the service was fine and the food enjoyable. Look forward to going again.
