Was looking for a late lunch/early evening meal as travelled from London for my daughters graduation which was taking place the following day. The weather was very warm so decided to go out of Nottingham City Centre to find somewhere to eat & came across Gamston Lock. Very welcoming staff & aircon which was really called for on the day...

Good choice of quality food and drink and the staff were great, just what we needed after a long drive in 30 degree heat with the family.

It was Ok. Nothing special. Side order of onion rings disappointingly thrown on a side plate. Not a lot for the money considering you get the same on top of a burger. Had to change my horrible chair...they shouldn't be expecting people to sit on these. Puts you off from the start. Staff excellent so 3 stars.

Good morning, Thank you for your feedback. I will look into your concerns regarding our onion rings, a side order should contain 6 where as a burger has three however my team will be delighted you enjoyed the service. Kind regards Management Team Gamston Lock More

Lovely and slightly different menu to the other surrounding pubs in the area, which is a good thing. The husband and I ordered which we both... More
