Food was superb. I had the sea trout and venison saddle. Perfectly cooked dishes - delicious. My wife had the goose boudin and the cod for main. Tried both of them - again, both were excellent. From the sourdough bread, the brown bread (with treacle I think) and accompanying trout butter and the ricotta cheese (with Sicilian olive oil ) through the starters and mains to the pannacotta dessert and chestnut and honey tart, this was a great meal. If the food was good, the service was outstanding. A Puglian waitress was knowledgeable and friendly with great recommendations. When her shift ended, her Portuguese colleague picked up. Very nice guy, great wine recommendations and good conversation. Have been here over the years and heard it changed owners a few times with people not sure of what it was like. Great experience and having been at Chapter One the day before, the food and service was on a par. Would recommend. Great value.

Locks is THE place. Service was as always amazing. Positive lovely people. Food was 4 or of 5 on Locks standard. This is still better than any other restaurants but I had better meals in Locks. This may be down to limited Christmas menu not being my thing. I marked it down on the atmosphere as there was an obscene guy at the table next to us, talking and laughing extremely show off loud. Not locks fault and I am not sure what could have been done about it but my partner and me could not have a conversation over the Birthday dinner we were there for. I will certainly be back again...

Had one of the most enjoyable lunch experiences, from start to the end for my boyfriend's birthday. Food was amazing and so well presented. Service impeccable and a really lovely Christmassy atmosphere. I would highly recommend. It would be great for a treat / family / friends celebrations.

We had our Christmas Lunch at Locks and we could not fault it! The setting itself was beautiful, with a room all to ourselves looking out onto the canal. It was lovely and cozy and the perfect private setting for a work do. Both Roberto and Louise were amazing hosts and looked after us so well, top class service. The food was spectacular, and they catered to everyone's needs. The choice of wine and cocktails was also great. We will hopefully be back next year. Thank you again!

Thank you so much Locks. We come back again and again (on the rare occasions we get out!) because you are so consistently good. Our lunch experience last Friday was at Michelin Star level. Amazing food and drinks, gorgeous setting and really lovely, relaxed service. I'm still thinking of that ricotta - not something I'd normally go for - the ox tongue starter, the perfect bernaise and sides to accompany our steaks, the panacotta, the wine, the cocktails....take me back!
