We arrived around 8.15 pm and it was very busy with at least 2 parties before us. Whilst last food orders are at 8.30 the staff were very friendly and helpful. Dog was very welcome, all food ordered was fresh cooked and tasty. The gammon, fish pie, cod and especially beef burger all proved popular! Our dog was welcomed.

Really nice pub in a great location with tables outside overlooking the water. We sat outside and ordered the food at the bar which took around 20 minutes to arrive. Unfortunately the waitress served up the starters and mains together! When questioned she said this was policy for diners eating outside as at busy times it's to much trouble to... More

Food here was very nice, beautiful scenery and a really nice atmosphere in which to eat. Good pint as well. I think the only think that lets this place down is the time it takes to actually receive your food. Obviously its tough when it gets busy but the wait did seem excessive. Otherwise a rally nice, memorable day.

I was entertaining friends from Australia and wanted to take them to an iconic Leicestershire place and enjoy the surroundings accompanied by good food and drink. I was not disappointed. The manager was extremely friendly and our Canalside reserved(via email - thanks Stephanie) table was excellent. We were able to look out over the Canal and see Swans with cygnets... More

I've eaten here a couple of times - Foxton being a great place to walk with the family. And what I have appreciated is that not only is the food good but it's a family friendly environment and they don't rush you - quite important when you have grandparents and kids to keep happy!

Great location, but food was rather disappointing. The service was rather poor. Lots of staff who seemed very inexperienced. Still the setting made up for it

The service was excellent. The staff could not have been more accommodating; particularly Charlotte and Natalie who made us feel at ease whilst we waited for two members of party, who arrived much later than the arranged booking time. The food was good and the location was fabulous. We will certainly visit this restaurant again.

We have eaten and drank several times at the Foxton Locks Inn and have always had a lovely time, good service and nice food however our experience last night was very very disappointing. Alarms bells probably should have run that the place was near enough empty both inside and out which for a lovely Tuesday night in June was surprising.... More

Sitting right on the water at the bottom of the locks at the canal junction. Plenty of space with views inside and outside right on the water. Frequented predominately by visitors and rather than by boaters so that could be a plus. A very well maintained establishment decorated appropriately for the location and with taste. The food we had was,... More
