Been here a few times now and enjoyed the food a lot, great choice of dishes and a good range, I've always tried the burgers and they are really good. The only down side I would say is the service, isn't the fastest place to have food and drinks order taken, but I does look understaffed at times. But other... More

Being a sunny evening we decided to eat outside, when my boyfriend ordered food at the bar he was warned the food could take 30+ mins. We were happy to wait and enjoy the weather however it didn't seem that busy for there to be a long wait. I ordered a burger which was lovely but my boyfriend's steak wasn't... More

We visited Gamston Lock on a Saturday evening as a group of 8 (two families of four). The service was very good as was all the food. I would eat here again and would recommend.

First time visitor and the place looked decent from the road. Decor top notch and service pretty good so no complaints there. Food however was average. Ordered a burger and the gammon. Chips were pretty grotty and average pieces of meat with the bun for the burger a real let down. If you are hungry and just need food I... More

Reserved a table for 10 for our family, my son and his friends celebrating his 8th birthday. They were a bit hyper with it being the end of term! However we couldn't have been treated better - service was friendly and attentive, food was good and reasonably priced. We'll be back for a calmer meal soon!
