“Always lovely”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Always lovely food, atmosphere is great , feels really authentic of an nice country pub. Staff are nice, good selection of drinks. Okay the drinks aren't so cheap, but if you want cheap drinks then go somewhere cheap? I dont know what people expect to pay nowadays, everywhere is expensive! But i go back time and time again and I'm never disappointed.

“Nice food but expensive bar”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We had a very nice meal here some time ago but I was surprised recently to visit the bar and be charged £3.50 for a pint of Doombar when the Steamboat next door charge £2.80 for similar.

“Almost excellent - service far too slow.”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Tried the Trent Lock recently for lunch on a Saturday as we had never been in before.

The service upon arrival was brilliant and we were asked if we would like to move tables because the one we were at was a little in the middle of everything so we moved to the corner which was much nicer.

The food was gorgeous - I ordered something a little different to the menu choices and the waitress was very accommodating and said that was fine which was good. The drinks were great too which is sometimes hard to say for pub soft drinks!

The only thing I will say let the visit down was the extremely long amount of time we had to wait for our food to be brought out. We waited at least 30 minutes for the starter to come after ordering and ANOTHER 40 minutes for the main course once our starters were finished and cleared away. This let the meal down immensely. We were short on time so didn't order dessert.

The food was great and the waitress was lovely and polite and nice when she was around - but that was rare as it was so long between courses.

I would give this a 5 for everything if that was better. We will try the Trent Lock again but when we have more time and aren't quite as hungry! The food made up for the wait (somewhat).
