Delightful lunch in Locks. Food fab, good range of choice and excellent friendly service. Hand sanitizer on each table an extra touch. A real treat. We’ll be back!

The food was on average OK. The canapés were lovely and the fish butter went well with the sourdough bread. However I did think it took the flavour away from the guinness bread which may have be nicer with plain butter. The starters were lovely, I really enjoyed the mix of flavour and texture. The lamb was also lovely as a main course and I enjoyed the walnuts-broccil combination, but there was nothing special about the cheesecake quiche or garlic potatoes. The dessert was amazing; I would recommend the strawberries yogurt champagne dish which was a great mix of flavours and textures! The service was OK but let down when the waiter not only dropped an olive on my handbag, but on noticing he dropped it didn't make any effort to find it or apologise. At another point during the meal, the waiter leant over my water and wine glasses to wipe the table which I thought would have been better done on my other side. Otherwise, service time was good with sufficient pauses better courses to enjoy the evening. The starters and dessert were by far the highlight of the meal.

We went for Sunday lunch for my mum’s birthday and couldn’t have had a better time! The service was absolutely wonderful, all people we interacted with were so friendly and professional. The food was incredible and the portion sizes were very generous. I’ve been raving about the meal to friends since we left!

This place is exceptional in every respect: food, wine selection, service, ambiance! It may be a bit pricey but it's totally worth it.

We had a wonderful meal on Saturday evening. Our waitress was excellent and the setting is beautiful. There was only one negative incident, I had made sure to inform you in advance that one of our party was pescatarian and we were delighted that the waitress made reference to it when she brought the pre dinner nibbles. However while my daughter was eating the broccoli which had almonds sprinkled on the top she discovered bacon in the sauce! My only other feedback which is personal probably is that the ricotta and artichoke starter was very bland, the ricotta was pretty tasteless. I think a butter bean and garlic mash would have gone better with the dish and enabled it to be suitable for vegans.

Lack of atmosphere was in all likelihood due to COVID restrictions and the fact that we were seated upstairs. Sensational food.
