We ordered the Frontier battered Haddock, it sounds good, but I can honestly say it was the worst fish I have ever tasted. We were not even sure that the fish was haddock. For me haddock is a fish with plenty of taste, nice flakes...More

The key thing here is the location. It's by the River Kennet and those on the water provide a pleasant distraction. It's a Fullers pub and so it has all the good things that Fullers provide: food, beer, wine and service. It's dog friendly.

Food was actually ok but no one asked us if food was ok, even when we paid bill. Sauces and drinks requested with meal that never arrived and plates only cleared after we left table. Fairly quiet so unsure why no effort was made

I absolutely love the roast dinners there worth travelling the 8 miles for. The cauliflower cheese is just amazing and perfect. Always excellent service! Lovely seating outside by the canal also! Thank you again for another lovely meal!

One of the best pubs in Newbury for fresh food and cracking cask ales. The Lock Stock & Barrel is the ideal spot for some riverside relaxationwith its heated patio and the quirky roof terrace.
