Very friendly staff, pub/restaurant itself is children and dog friendly. Plenty of seating. Food is standard fare (we were there for Sunday lunch) but well cooked and presented

When we arrived I was pleasantly surprised, lovely location although understandably difficult to park as was Mother's Day. My sister had made a booking for 8 people for brunch, should have been called breakfast because that would have reflected exactly what was on the menu. The food was not great, black pudding needed a chisel to get through it, my... More

The waiter, Mathew was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere in the restaurant was good. It was nice to see the water lit up at night. The food was great, my husband had salmon & crayfish to start, he said it was lovely. I had a fish pie, (£11) which was nice, better with a few prawns in perhaps but the... More

The setting of this pub is beautiful and overlooks the lochs. A wonderful atmosphere and you instantly feel at home upon entering. Very busy when we first arrived but staff pointed us in the right direction (we had reserved a table which I recommend to avoid disappointment) and quickly took our drinks order. Our drinks and starters arrived very quickly... More

Lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff, delicious food! I had the burger and it was delicious. My husband had the fish and chips and it was also delicious. Will be returning soon.

Had a lovely walk in beautiful spring weather and then had lunch. We sat by the big windows so we could see the canal. I had scampi and my friend had the fish and chips. I think if a pub offers the basics they should do them well. I could not fault it and the service was good. They were... More

If you are eating here try to book a table on the enclosed terrace for a great view. Good food and good choice of soft drinks. Combine with a walk along the canal (good surfaced top paths) and maybe visit the museum as well to learn about the locks and the inclined plane. WiFi free but a bit weak.

This was our second visit. We mainly selected this venue as they accept dogs in certain areas. It got off to a bad start as despite a number of email exchanges with the owner and confirmation of our booking, when we arrived, they had no knowledge of our booking and subsequently, we were shoved on a tiny table by the...

I visited here with a party of ex work colleagues to plan a day trip we are organising to Foxton Locks. The service we received was excellent as we were a party of 11 they took our orders and asked what time we wanted the food serving as we were having a meeting as well. I chose the drunken chicken...

Was at Foxton Locks for a little walk and explore, so I stopped here for lunch. A lovely pub with a wonderful view. They serve good pub food at a reasonable price. Good happy service. Thank you Foxton Lock Inn
