Excellent staff and lovely pub but...

I visited the Grove Lock today for lunch with friends. I love the pub, it has a lovely ambience and have been there several times.

We couldn't fault the service and felt reassured by the staff's efforts to comply with COVID regulations, which must be really hard in itself.

I ordered the burger and was a bit disappointed. The burger itself tasted fine, but the chips were lukewarm and quite dried out, as if they had been reheated. There was no salad garnish or coleslaw, which you would expect when you're paying nearly £14.00 for a burger.

Two of my friends had the fish finger sandwich, which looked and smelt amazing and I wished I'd chosen that instead! Another friend had the veggie curry and said it was quite bland.

So all in all, a bit inconsistent. However, because I love the pub, I would probably give it another try 🙂

manager blames fullers group
Aug 2019
this was a lovely establishment, set right next to the water.

5th August. We sat outside as usual by the water, the men went to order the drinks prosecco 1/2 glass servings, we were told fullers new policy ? so we buy to glasses of prosecco to get a full glass. Food was average, could not tell the difference between the Sirloin and Ribeye ?? Manager did apologise for our wait, but said he had 30 meals to cook ?? we had to come upto the dining area, as they do not bring the food down to the tables by the water (a waitress broke her foot)

We did not find the staff friendly today, Must have had a hard weekend. Time to look for another local .....

Unfortunate
May 2019 • Couples
We visited The Grove Lock for lunch and had steak. It was expensive and small. One arrived before anybody else’s without the chips so sat getting cold waiting. The ice cream arrived melted so had to be sent back and the next one arrived with sugar on! The staff were friendly.
