Sat 02 May - Two couples with dogs TO A DOG FRIENDLY PUB

This pub is well known in the area, with a great location and is fully refurbished to a good standard. It is a very large and busy pub so visitors should expect this but the restaurant manager supervises the staff well and service is polite, welcoming, smooth and efficient. We sat on a lovely table... read more

I am somewhat reluctant to give a great review here because that will just attract more people with inevitable results. However, the lunch I had here deserves praise. It is probably the best fish and chips I have eaten in 20 years and at a very sensible price. There was a decent quantity of fish extremely well cooked and a... More

This is a lovely spot to wander and spend a few hours enjoying the locks and watching both the boats and the world go by! So it's good to find such a dog friendly Inn when you're ready to eat. Food was good in both quality and quantity and biscuits were provided for the dogs. Average prices too so would... More

We arrived without a reservation for a family Sunday Lunch, no tables were available in the main part so we directed over to the Boathouse. I'm on crutches with a broken leg at the moment and I have to say that the level of customer service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble even to the point where they made... More

We took friends from out of town to Foxton to see the locks and as it was lunchtime took the opportunity to get a bite to eat. It was busy but as we have found before they always seem to manage with lots of inside and outside seats. We sat outside and as it was lunchtime they only serve from... More

Visited here during our 7 mile walk for some much needed lunch. The pub was very busy but service was really quick. There was a carvery on offer which looked delicious but it was a hot sunny day so didn't take our fancy. The food was really tasty, well presented and came really quickly after ordering. Prices were slightly higher... More

We were a party of 3 visiting on a very busy Easter Monday, we hadn't booked and didn't really expect to get a table but the owner/manager and her staff were absolutely brilliant and found room for us in between two confirmed bookings.... We were delighted. The Carvery was fantastic and the staff amazing, how they did it with the... More

Easter Monday the sun shone and the World and his wife descended on Foxton Locks, as did we. The Foxton Locks Inn was heaving with trade and many of the tables had reservations. The staff were all doing a sterling service. We were offered a table, and informed of the time when the reservation was due - not a problem.... More
