“Warm Welcome in Winter”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We had a lovely lunch at The Lock in late November 2012. It was a cold, damp day but the food was glorious. The service was excellent - all the staff were friendly and welcoming. We'll be going back soon.

“A really old fashioned tea room”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

A clean tea room full of character, fantastic views. Enjoyed most when the weather is fine, great eating space outdoors. Surrounded by lovely countryside, canal and lock gates.

Reviewed January 5, 2013

Get there by 11am for cooked breakfast - and go for a walk around the basin afterwards to walk off the calories
