Myself and my partner visited The Locksbrook Inn on 23/06 for an evening meal and it’s safe to say we will definitely be returning. Such lovely staff and a very impressive menu, the food was literally perfect. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Staff wasn’t that talkative didn’t feel welcome spoke to a chef outside and he was so lovely and the food was amazing for the kids and the roast was nice would go for the food again if the staff was more welcoming

The waitress service very good, however we did have to wait an hour and a half before we got our mains and watching other people who sat down afterwards get there meals before was annoying. At the beginning our drinks took a long time and the service manager came over and explained the pads that were in use had not saved our order and she would give us discount which was very good of her. When we got our bill at the end the discount hadn’t been calculated and we had to ask o out it (which isn’t something that made me feel comfortable) However there was no fuss and money was deducted, food very good value, toilets very clean and generally lovely feel to the pub.

My daughters fish stew was cold and had to be sent back to the kitchen. My wife had the fish and chips and not all the chips were well cooked. I had the schnitzel which was excellent. We had the Veg platter as a starter which was lovely. Overall I was dis appointed this time as we have many meals with you in the past, which have been delightful. I would think twice before ordering the stew or the fish and chips again.

We ordered a smoothy for our daughter which never arrived, I enquired about it twice and each time was told that they would look into it and get back too us, but nobody ever did and when we got the bill we had been charged for the smoothy, they did take it off without hesitation when it was ponted out that we never received it. The food was really good and the staff was very friendly but there was more staff outside than in and it was difficult to get sombodys attention. Othere wise I would definitely go again.
