I don't like to see dogs in restaurants, but I understand that people have to make a living and turning away dog owners could be detrimental to the business. However, dogs under the table is one thing - sat on the owner's lap eating from the table is disgusting. The waitresses walked by several times without saying anything so I... More

Took my family and my parents here for Sunday morning breakfast. The staff were very friendly and extremely patient as they were clearly very busy. The Easy Breakfast was everything that a full-English should be and very good value for money. Of note was the quality of the bacon which was excellent. We will definitely be going back!

we looked all round BOA on Saturday night for a place to eat, found this and looked no further. Helen and I had different meals, both excellent and good value. Service was excellent and we ended up lingering over the bottle of wine for almost 3 hours. We planned our Sunday canal walk around a late lunch here and the... More

I went with my daughter and her husband to The Lock Inn, and we all had different starters and a different main meal. It was all cooked perfectly and presented nicely. It was priced very reasonably and although they were busy the staff were very pleasant and we did not have to wait for the meal to be served. Warm... More

3 of us stopped in for breakfast. It was rainy and cold and it was lovely to go in to the warm and find a cosy table. The place was very busy but breakfast came really quickly and was perfect. The vegetarian options on offer were great and the menu really entertaining to read. A fantastic find!

After a long trip from Bath down the Kennet and Avon canal, our journey came to an end at this quirky place by the water. We only intended on popping in for a swift pint before heading further into town for dinner but ended up staying for a few more jars than we had initially intended. The quality of the... More

Perfect location great menu fun owners and staff, just not to be missed great choice for everyone, all sorts of different places to sit and watch the canal boats go to the lock, or sit inside in the warmth.

Thank Neil H
