Good pub grub

Prompt service, helpful staff, good pub grub at reasonable prices. Dog friendly too! This is a great venue over-looking the canal basin at Foxton Locks. Will definately return, perhaps to give one of their music nights a try

We went as a party of eight during a Golden Wedding Anniversary weekend. The weather was awful, but the beauty of the locks urged us on to have Sunday lunch at the Inn. The selection of meat, vegetables and trimmings was really excellent, and the quality was equally excellent. Nobody had any room left for a dessert!!! In brief, excellent... More

Manager and waitress extremely rude and quite insulting. We were squashed on a table for 8 and we were a party of 10. We requested a terrace table at time of booking but didn't get one. Food average. Very disappointing birthday treat.

Visited the pub today, it was really busy, being a beautiful, warm afternoon. Despite how busy it was, the food arrived sooner than we expected. My friend had the cheeseburger, I had the lamb burger and my friend's daughter had the salmon fillet. We all thought the food was excellent, staff were friendly and helpful. I wouldn't say it was...

Having visited the locks,we decided to grab some lunch and having a choice of 2 venues,we chose the Foxton Locks Inn. The setting and views are superb and the staff were friendly and helpful. The meals arrived quickly and were very pleasant but in our opinion,quite overpriced for what they were. They do however offer a good range of alcoholic... More

The service here is second to none. The food was not only tasty but very well presented by wonderful friendly staff. There is a wonderful relaxed atmosphere in this lovely location. We were worried that our dog would not be welcome, what a surprise, they gave us a bowl of water AND offered free treats. What a place!!! We travelled... More

I've eaten here twice now and had exactly the same experience on both visits. The restaurant/pub is in a lovely location and is very nicely decorated throughout. The staff are friendly and the food extremely well cooked. However the service is agonisingly slow, even when the restaurant is only half full. We booked a table and arrived at 7, were... More
