I've visited the Double Locks pub on a few occasions and unfortunately I have nothing good to report. The first time was for a company BBQ; they served a hog roast which was largely undercooked and we were stuck in a tent in the pouring rain. We were told we couldn't go indoors as our party was too big so were stuck outside.
The second time was a lunchtime date with a friend, we sat outside as it was a nice day however the service was almost non existent and the pub wasn't even that busy! The food again wasn't great.
The third, and probably final, visit was to their 'Sausage & Cider Festival' over the August bank holiday weekend... Except you could hardly call it that! We got there at 7pm, which we considered quite early on a Saturday night, and it wasn't at all busy which concerned us. We then found out that they'd run out of sausages AND had stopped serving all food! At 7pm on a Saturday night you do not expect a pub to stop serving food! We ended up getting McDonalds as one of the main reasons we went there that night was the food so we were starving and McDonalds was our only option. The cider was an overall disappointment too, the band stopped playing at 10pm and they called last orders at 10:30pm... Considering it was supposed to be a 'festival', a Saturday and a bank holiday it was overall a total let down. Other people we spoke to who attended earlier that day all shared our feelings which to is sounded like the whole day was disappointing.
Overall, this pub is a bit of a let down which is such a shame considering it's beautiful surroundings. The food is poor at best (when they are serving it!), the drinks are all overpriced, and the service is lacking too.
