Fully refurbished and located on the outskirts of Gamston and West Bridgford, opposite Holme Pierrepont. The Gamston Lock offers something for everyone which includes our famous fantastic Rotisserie chicken and an extensive menu which is enhanced by our home-made traditional British specials. We serve meals for any occasion, from sandwiches and light bites to all the classic, whether it be lunch, an afternoon snack or a evening meal nothing is too much trouble. Food is served all day and we can accommodate large parties. Evening sunshine? Come and see our great beer garden with children's play equipment and our beautiful pagoda, with working fire place. We also provide an extensive range of draught beers, great selection of cask ales and a wide selection of wines. As well as Offering full table service, we believe the Gamston Lock is the perfect location for any occasion. Darren and the team look forward to welcoming you soon.

We visited the Gamston Lock for a birthday meal. The food was poor, in both quality and flavour. The children's meals looked warmed up rather than freshly cooked as did the meat on the roast dinner. I know that the position of the pub cannot be helped, but it is off-putting to sit by the children's play area right next... More
