We stayed for 3 days and had breakfast and dinner here. Breakfast was a good spread. We asked for vegetarian sausages and they were prepared and served at the time within minutes.Dinner was great too. The lambshank, fish and chips were the favourite as was chicken salad. Desert selection is decent.

If i could give it no stars i would, the place is vile! Went here with friends and two children including my 1 year old, the children's meals came with rancid veg on! One of my babies peppers actually had a big lump of mould on which was visible before it got to the table! I wasn't pleased obviously sent... More

Visited here once as staying at The Premier Inn nearby. £8.99 for all you can eat breakfast. We had to ask for cutlery as none on the table. There were no plates at the buffet counter. There was no bubble & squeak, black pudding and mushrooms as advertised. When asked they managed to find some mushrooms. Also no pastries as... More

We stopped by at the Lock Keeper for a cuppa, after taking a stroll nearby to try and encourage the arrival of our hopefully-soon-to-be-born bambino. Although we weren't planning on eating, we simply couldn't resist. Two starters for £2.50 followed by two deserts for £2.50 is hard to turn down; we would have mains if we were hungry enough too...

Visited here often for food and it is fab for the 2 for £10, that's brill and it is cheap to add a starter or a mains on as well so it isn't overpriced. I have also been for a carvery one evening, it wasn't the best Iv ever had though as the meat was a bit dry, but there... More

Dined there with friends recently for the 1st time and was very impressed with the quality and value of the food, particularly compared with a carvery I generally go to closer to home which has recently disappointed me. While costing a bit more it still represents very good value and quality and I would not hesitate to dine there again.... More

Had the misfortune to book a table here not knowing that there was some sort of buy one get one free type offer on so it was uncomfortably busy, what was worse was the first 3 things we ordered they had ran out of!! The next morning when we went down for buffet breakfast we were told that as the... More

Food was good and the little one enjoyed the soft play area. £3 for 90 mins. Food came in acceptable time for a busy Saturday. Nice food.

This is our 2nd visit but we didn't have the same 40 min wait this time, as before - they'd cut it to 20...Busy at 5.30pm, there is still room to be had and the recent 2 for 1 voucher may just have been worth it. More chips than the previous 'count-on-one hand' portion, the food is tasty & presentable.... More
