I decided to eat in The Kings Lock on a saturday night after hearing great reviews from friends and I have to say it did not disappoint one bit. The main appearance of the pub is 1000% better than before, very clean, tidy and welcoming. A selection of real ales, flat ciders and locally brewed Freedom lager was excellent, it's nice not to see the regular 'Fosters' and 'Strongbow'. The staff are very friendly and professional, there was a young lad who served us our drinks and food and he was very polite and helpful and is a credit to the new landlord. Now onto the food - I decided to start with the black pudding scotch egg, which was to die for, I have never tasted anything so delicious. And for the main I had a perfectly cooked battered cod and three cooked chips which was absolutely amazing and I devoured every last bit. All of the meals were clearly made with fresh ingredients and cooked there and then. All of the meals were reasonably priced and for the quality of service and food we received, I would pay double the price of the current meals. The entire meal and experience at the NEW kings lock was excellent and I will definitely be back very soon to try the rest of the amazing menu.
I recommend this pub to everyone and I hope it is a great success. The Kings Lock is definitely one of the best pubs i've been in a long time.
